This chicken dinner is super easy and delicious. You can use different seasonings, such as dried rosemary (crushed), minced garlic, or Italian seasoning- whatever you like. When plating individual servings, I like to spoon some of the lemon juice over the vegetables, and sprinkle a little crumbled feta on top. Enjoy!
