Certainly! Here's a delicious recipe for a special dinner:

Grilled Lemon Herb Chicken with Roasted Vegetables


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 lemons, juiced and zested
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Roasted Vegetables:

  • 1 pound baby potatoes, halved
  • 2 bell peppers (any color), seeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a bowl, combine the lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, minced garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

  2. Place the chicken breasts in a zip-top bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and massage the marinade into the chicken, ensuring they are evenly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours for maximum flavor.

  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  4. In a large bowl, toss the halved baby potatoes, bell peppers, and onion wedges with olive oil, salt, and pepper until well coated.

  5. Spread the vegetables on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and slightly caramelized.

  6. While the vegetables are roasting, remove the chicken breasts from the marinade and discard the excess marinade.

  7. Grill the chicken breasts on the preheated grill for about 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through and nicely charred. Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts.

  8. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes.

  9. Serve the grilled lemon herb chicken alongside the roasted vegetables. You can garnish with additional fresh herbs, if desired.

This flavorful and healthy dish is perfect for a special dinner. The grilled chicken with a citrusy herb marinade pairs beautifully with the roasted vegetables, creating a well-rounded and satisfying meal. Enjoy!
