Olive Lemon Chicken

This exceptionally easy and comforting meal can be easily customized and incorporates incredible flavours. The chicken can be seasoned how you desire and even stuffed with the prepared toppings. Tomatoes, onions, and olives add both colour and vitamins to the dish, and roasted potatoes would also make a great side to round out the meal. Any chosen vegetables, such as carrots or sauteed spinach, can be added alongside the other toppings to add flavour and nutrition. Lemon slices add incredible colour and acidity to this dish and can be easily spiced to pack a powerful, flavourful punch. Lastly, this meal requires hardly any preparation or labour, making it a perfect go-to weekday meal, even for those with busy schedules.
