I know it’s hot out there for some of you and you are craving popsicles & salads. Well, guess what….sometimes you need a hearty meal too. One that takes a little while to cook, but no hovering over. A meal already prepared ~ so you can reach into your fridge & grab it, that way you can get on with more important things. This One-Pot Roasted Chicken & Veggies is sooooo simple to prepare. Go ahead & toss some on your salad. I asked my awesome pal Jesse Morris from the blog KillerChefs what the heck to do with a chicken I bought recently….this is his great idea.
Sometimes I listen, sometimes I don’t. I listen to Jesse ’cause he really knows great food & good cookin’.
He is a chef & also a hunter ~ so I trust. Hence his blog name KillerChefs. Jesse was the head chef at the fabulous restaurant Roy’s. He knows stuff. I often ask him cooking questions and he answers back quickly with great ideas. You can ask him questions too on his Facebook page.
This chicken is perfect for those on grain-free, gluten-free and Paleo meal plans. What you got here is a protein-packed, veggie-rich meal.
So even though it takes a little while in the oven, it is worth it’s while to have great food at the ready. I can take extra time to my mountain views & smell a delicious meal cooking in the oven.
The kids can play outside while it cooks. You can run around the house doing whatever it is you need to do. Or you can sit and have a cocktail.
I like to serve our chicken over these pretty sunflower sprouts.
You can also go with a salad, pasta, quinoa, hunks of crusty bread or rice. Your choice. Enjoy your chicken!
