  • Summary

    A pesto made with parsley, lemons, and capers adds a savory tang to this roasted-chicken-and-potatoes dinner. Cooking thin lemon slices mellows their bite and softens their rinds, so you can eat them whole or just squeeze their juice over the finished dish.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound small red potatoes, halved
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1 lemon
    • 2 cups fresh parsley
    • 1/4 cup walnuts
    • 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained
    • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts (3 pounds total)
