One Pan Herb Roasted Vegetables and Chicken – This recipe is packed with good-for-you ingredients and fresh flavors. Featuring four varieties of root vegetables and chicken roasted to perfection, you’re bound to be satisfied. All of this is done on one pan!
As JoCook’s young padawan, it’s about time for me to post some one-pan/ one-pot recipes! This idea came to me thanks to my friend, Julie. She had messaged me asking for a recipe featuring root vegetables, and making them super tasty. The major benefit of root vegetables is their high dietary fibre and potassium content. Recipes like this are a great way to cut out grains without losing out on the nutrition you need!
This is one of those recipes that you can have on table in less than an hour from start to finish. It’s fantastic for a busy weeknight dinner, or meal-prepping for your week. That is, if it will last more than two days in your home! The flavors ended up being so fantastic that my boyfriend polished off the whole pan in no time at all. I guess I’ll have to double up next time, hey?
I will use fresh herbs whenever humanly possible. They just taste so much better than their dried and bottled counterparts! If dried herbs are more convenient for you, I would cut the amount called for in this recipe by half. Dried herbs are much more compact as the pieces are smaller, and a 1/2 cup will definitely overwhelm the whole meal.
