Using a single pan to cook dinner makes quick work of cleanup

One skillet recipes are amazing, both for the ease of preparation, and the time savings. Let’s face it, who wants to stare down a sink full of pots and pans after dinner? Using a single pan makes quick work of cleanup.

Packed with flavor, this mouthwatering recipe is quick and easy to prepare. The use of fresh rosemary, garlic, and lemon makes this mouthwatering dish one that your family will ask for over and over again. 

Note: Choose organic lemons when making this. Because they’re used whole in the recipe the rind comes into contact with the rest of the dish. Organic lemons mean no nasty pesticides on the rind.
