I love to cook. I really do but I do have a few requirements before spending time in the kitchen. First, my kitchen needs to be organized at all times. I can’t spend time looking for things I need to create a recipe. Second, I don’t want to spend all day cooking. So recipes that can be made in around 30 minutes are the way to my heart. And this recipe? This Lemon Garlic Butter Chicken and Potatoes Skillet recipe is one of those recipes.
