dinner group & pan roasted chicken with lemon

tonight was the first night austin & i hosted dinner group!
we have cooked for dinner group in the past, but tonights was the first
at our house using our cute kitchen supplies & being actual hosts.
in the past, we always cooked at either shayla's or ashley's, so it was nice!
i loved it! we made a recipe that i found on pinterest for
pan-roasted chicken with lemon
& it was delicious
& here's what ya need:
6 T olive oil
2 lemons, 1 thinly sliced & 1 juiced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 t salt
1/2 t ground black pepper
3/4 pound trimmed green beans (or however you want)
8 red potatoes, quartered
4 chicken breasts 
& here's what ya do!
1. preheat oven to 450, coat baking dish with 1T of olive oil. arrange the lemon slices in a single layer in the bottom of the dish
2. in a large bowl combine remaining oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt & pepper. add the green beans & toss to coat. remove green beans & arrange on top of the lemon slices. add the potatoes to the same olive-oil mix & toss to coat. arrange potatoes along the inside edge of the dish on top of te green beans. place the chicken in the same bowl with the olive-oil mixture & coat thoroughly. place the chicken in the dish & pour any remaining olive- oil mixture over the chicken 
3. roast for 50 minutes & then remove chicken from the dish. place beans & potatoes back in oven for 10 more minutes, or until potatoes are tender. once tender, remove & serve!

i want to say it sounds more time consuming & possibly difficult than it is.... 
but truth be told, my wonderful hubs made it while i washed dishes & talked on the phone...
so i really don't know. all i do know is that it was completely delicious!
