lemon skillet chicken + roasted veggies

This is a staple meal in our house. I’ve been making this lemon skillet chicken for almost a year now. It usually has a heavy cream based sauce, but I’ve left out the heavy cream until I can find an alternative the kids like! It’s easy to make and I always have the ingredients handy. I also don’t have to do as much because the infused oils add so much flavor! As you can tell from their photo, I use them A LOT!

This meal is gluten and dairy free and everyone gobbled it up. The boys even asked for it for lunch tomorrow! Now THAT’S a win, lol. I was lazy with my photos tonight, because I was tired, so don’t judge me 😉
