  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Put five tablespoons of olive oil, the fresh lemon juice and minced garlic in a large plastic bag. Add four boneless, skinless chicken breasts and coat them with the olive oil mixture.
  • Remove the chicken from the bag, reserving the olive oil mixture, and place it in a 12 inch cast iron skillet (can also use a casserole dish or 9 x 13" pan) greased with one tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Put the cubed potatoes, halved grape tomatoes in the bag and coat them with the olive oil mixture.
  • Surround the chicken with the potatoes and tomatoes.
  • Sprinkle everything with kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper and rosemary.
  • Top each piece of chicken with two lemon slices.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 40-50 minutes, until the chicken is fully cooked (internal temperature of 165 degrees) and the potatoes are tender. Brown under the broiler for two minutes, if desired.
