Baked Chicken and Vegetables

Here is a great-tasting and healthy chicken and vegetables meal, cooked and served in one dish. We had this tonight. Like a lot of GREAT recipes, I made it up as I went along. It was really tasty and filling.

Pay attention to the thick cuts and other preparation details, it’s worth it for the end result. And while there is a bit of preparation work here, the ‘one-dish cooking and serving’ part helps a lot.

You can get away with easily using the frozen chicken that you may have bought in bulk at your local BJ’s or Costco. No defrosting, just lay them in.
