This is an excellent Springtime dinner that can be prepared and served in a single pan. I’m using a cast iron skillet; however, any good ovenproof skillet should work just fine.

So, you ready… let’s get into the kitchen.

PREP/PREPARE

Gather your ingredients.

Whisk the tamari, honey, ginger lemon juice, and red pepper together in a small bowl.
4
Divide the marinade in half.
5
Add the chicken pieces to a Ziploc bag, and add 1/2 of the marinade.

Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Chef’s Note: This gives the marinade a chance to get acquainted with the chicken.

Toward the end of the 2-hour waiting period place the remainder of the marinade into a small saucepan.
9
Bring to a simmer, and allow the sauce to cook until reduced by half, about 5 to 8 minutes.

Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 400 (205c).

Add the empty skillet to the oven and allow to heat up.
12
Remove the skillet from the oven and then add the onions, salt & pepper, then place the chicken, carrots, and lemons on top of the veggies.
13
Brush the chicken and veggies with the reserved marinade.
14
Place into the preheated oven, and bake until the chicken is crispy, and the veggies are tender, about 40 to 45 minutes.
