Herby Lemony Chicken Thighs with Potatoes Is Spring In a Skillet
Someone recently pointed out that many of my recipes start with ‘Lemony’ to describe the predominant flavors of the recipe. After a moment of recalling some of my favorite dishes (I see you Lemony Brussels Sprouts Pasta), I realized that lemon does play a large role in most of them because I’m a big fan. Lemon adds acidity, brightness and freshness (and a bit of color when serving some on the side), plus I almost always have some in the house.
