  • 2 tablespoons onion or shallot infused oil
  • 1/2 cup low-FODMAP chicken broth
  • 6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  1. Good cooking technique, bad seasoning amounts

    The chicken turns out perfectly cooked along with the potatoes! But this recipe calls for WAY too much salt and WAYYY too much lemon. I would suggest doing 1-2 tsp of salt and maybe 1/2 a tbsp of lemon juice. Maybe even less than that. Pairs great with broccoli or asparagus!

    1. Thanks for the comment!
      We wonder if you used Kosher salt, which the recipe calls for. This is a different potency than table salt, and could be why you felt it was salty. This large amount of meat and potatoes require a generous amount of salting, but we understand preferences vary. Our tasters also thought the lemon used was the perfect amount, but not very strong, again, we agree that everyone has their own taste. Have a great day!

  2. absolutely wonderful

    I came back to this page after making this recipe for my son’s weekend home from college 2 weeks ago. I am making it again because my husband requested it. Had to comment- we would strongly disagree with the last reviewer. In fact, I am adding a bit more lemon this time to enhance it even more. I used my home made chicken broth (commercial broths ARE too salty) and added more salt at the end like you said. Thanks for the great recipe- would not change a thing!

    1. Thanks for the comment Paula, and for taking the time. We appreciate your point about chicken broth, and also think using fresh lemon makes all the difference. Hope you stay in touch with us! Have a great day!!

  3. Easy and Good

    Used boneless skinless thighs and adjusted cook time, came out perfect.
    Deglazed with a small amount of white wine mid way through cooking.

    1. Thank you so much! We love hearing about modifications that are successful. Hope to hear from you again.?

  4. Halved this recipe so there would be enough room on the sheet pan for everything to brown nicely. Used parchment paper for easy clean up. Skipped the chicken broth and the fresh herbs at the end. Everyone loved it!
