I’ve got another one pan dinner for you! With school starting back up, I know your family schedule can feel a little crazy, so I hope you’ll find this simple recipe super helpful.
In this recipe, I use bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts because they keep their moisture and flavor when roasted at high temperatures. Boneless, skinless breasts have a tendency to dry out if you’re not careful, so I just take that worry out of the equation.
To bring in some extra flavors, I first put in the meat and add the vegetables that need to roast the longest. Later, I add more vegetables that don’t need to roast as long. This creates more flavor and enables you to put more variety into your one-pan dinner. I used the same trick in this recipe. It’s a great way to increase your variety of vegetables!
Remember – when roasting, you always want to use a traditional oil or fat that withstands high temperatures. My favorites are ghee, lard, tallow, and duck fat. Skip the vegetables oils. I know some people tout them as “heart-healthy” and able to withstand high heats, but those oils are highly processed, can cause inflammation in the system, and are usually made with GMOs.
You can change out the vegetables when the seasons change. When fall arrives next month, I’ll swap out the potatoes for some seasonal root vegetables. I can’t wait!
