This roasted chicken dinner is a win-win. It is easy to prepare and it is packed with flavor! It has tons of veggies, savory chicken and a delicious combination of textures. Great for busy weeknights!
I meant to get this post out yesterday because I love being able to say Happy Valentine's Day to all of you wonderful people. But alas, time slipped away, as it's been seeming to do lately. So here is a belated HVD, which sounds more like a disease when abbreviated. Dan and I did our customary Valentine's dinner with steak and crab legs last night after the boys were in bed. This year we added lobster tail, yum! We also enjoyed asparagus and this totally yummy Creamy Hashbrown Potato recipe as our sides. Another VD success! And there we go with the diseases, which have nothing to do with anything.
Cooking with my hubby last night made me wish we cooked together more often. Most of the time it's only one of us cooking at a time, but I love sharing the kitchen with him and having us both contribute to the meal. Meals like this One-Pan Roasted Chicken and Veggies are almost too easy to be a team effort. I made this a few days ago and was so excited about the ease to yum ratio. Usually when something doesn't take much time it's assumed to lack in flavor, but not in this case. You cannot go wrong with this one-pan meal. I LOVE one-pan meals!
Be sure to use a pan large enough so that you can really spread the veggies out. If they become too stacked, they will not get cooked evenly. Also, feel free to experiment with herbs for seasoning! I love the basic olive oil, salt & pepper and parsley combo, but adding others would be great, as well.
