This lemon chicken recipe is easy to prepare and comes together quickly. Simply brown the chicken thighs, toss all the ingredients into a 13x9 pan (our go-to baking dish for every course) and you're good to go. We love how the addition of fresh lemon makes this baked chicken and potatoes taste fresh, bright and just-right for summer. And the brown sugar adds golden-brown color, and balances the tart lemon flavor with just a tiny bit of sweetness that the kids will love.
