Easy Lemon Chicken and Potatoes in Foil

We just love these types of meals… easy prep and not much of a mess to clean up afterwards. Plus, we think they look pretty cool when served too!

You’ll also notice this recipe packs a ton of flavor without adding much in the way of calories.  We found that the rosemary sprigs provide just the right amount of flavor without overpowering the dish. If you’re struggling to get a healthy meal on the table in time, make these in the morning and have dinner ready and on the table within 30 minutes!
