Savory Lemon Recipes

Even though we eat a lot of chicken, we sometimes toss in a fresh fish now and then. There’s nothing better than a buttery lemon fish. But if you’re not a fish lover, you can substitute almost any of the fish recipes for chicken. I also love the foil and sheet pan options. Anything that’s a one-dish wonder also works well for me. This helps us get out the door easily on our busy nights.
