    Liked the dish, but the sauce burned in the pan while cooking the chicken. Should I have covered the pan?

    So tasty and uses staple pantry items or easy to find ingredients. It's also a pretty dish to serve with the colors of veggies. Will make again.

    This dish was so easy to prepare, and delicious! The chicken cooked up moist and perfectly done, and the flavor was amazing. The thin slices of lemon on top were so tasty. I used zucchini cut into chunks in place of the green beans as I had that on hand. Will definitely make this again. VFE

    I wish I could give 10 stars! It's THAT GOOD. I love sheet pan meals, one problem I did have was that the sauce rather charred some. Next time, I will brush the chicken thighs with it before adding the lemon slice. Then mix it in with all the veggies. Because asparagus is in season right now, that's what I used along with chopped up Yukon Gold Potatoes. This recipe falls under "we're having this again pile". VFE

    Big on flavor and an easy clean-up! What's not to love?! The only changes I made to this recipe were using boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (what I had on-hand), and then putting the green bean/peppers combo on a separate baking pan. The sauce is absolutely fantastic!

    This is as visually appealing as it is tasty. Lots of color and flavor.

    This is one of my family favorite dinners. One pan (less mess to clean up) and so delicious. I made it exactly as it is! It makes a great weeknight meal!

    I don't like lemons, so I left them out and I used butternut squash instead of green beans and peppers. It was delicious and easy.
