    Delicious and super easy. Had it as a side dish with Chicken Milanese. The lemon in the potatoes went so well with the lemony arugula salad on the chicken!

    Quick, simple and delicious. A great alternative to the standard roasted red potatoes. I'll be making this again...and again.

    I wasn't sure about lemon-flavored potatoes, but these are great! An easy side dish.

    This whole menu is GREAT! The potatoes are so easy. But I would use more lemon zest
