4 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Whisk together lemon, lemon zest, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper
Place chicken, potatoes, green beans in a single layer on sheet pan and rub all over with lemon oil mixture. Toss everything together so that chicken and vegetables are well coated.
