When I shared this easy Meyer lemon centerpiece, I promised a chicken recipe so I could use up all those Meyer lemons. I love the fresh taste that lemons add to chicken, so I came up with an easy sheet pan recipe using chicken tenders, green beans, potatoes, and Meyer lemons.  Sheet pan dinners are the best. One pan means easy clean up!

So…what’s the difference between a Meyer lemon and a regular lemon? First, there is the size. Meyer lemons are smaller, because they are a hybrid grown from the cross-pollination of regular lemons and mandarin oranges. Meyer lemons are a seasonal winter fruit, where regular lemons are always available, all year long. As far as the taste goes, Meyer lemons are sweeter, so they can actually be eaten as is. When peeled and separated, the pieces can be added to salads, smoothies, and desserts.

Meyer Lemon Sheet Pan Chicken Recipe Tips

  • This is one of those recipes where you can substitute any vegetables for the green beans, and use any potatoes you have on hand. Baking time may need to be adjusted for veggies that take longer to cook.
  • Any kind of chicken can be used. If you have full size breast pieces, just slice them into tenders. If you have bone-in pieces, those take longer to bake, so the cook time will need to be adjusted. 
  • If you have time, it works well to let the chicken tenders soak in part of the marinade for 10 to 15 minutes. Divide the marinade by pouring part of it in a separate bowl, and adding the chicken tenders. (Discard this when finished.) Reserve the other part to brush on the green beans and potatoes, and as extra topping for the chicken.

    We as so many others are cooking more at home so this meal makes my list! Thanks & stay safe!

    1. Hi Ann,
      I made your chicken tonight for dinner and it was amazing! I only had one lemon so I used bottled juice and dried parsley but I don’t think it mattered. My husband and I both loved it! Thanks for all your hard work!

  10. Thank you Ann. We have to keep the faith and realize this is a life trial. And we need to remember things will get better

    Pray for the south today. Tornadoes all over the place. I have
    Sisters and brother in Ohio close to you and they had tornadoes and snow one day.

    Luckily God is in control.

    Thank you for sharing and encouragement
