Oven Roasted Chicken with Vegetables

I think this dish might just be the ultimate one – pot wonder!  Crispy, juicy chicken with tender vegetables all in a rich flavorful sauce is a meal that’s perfect for any night of the week or for casual entertaining.
The reason I call it ultimate is because this dish is so easy and you can be your own chef.  What I mean is this – change up the chicken pieces to whatever you like, take away any of the veggies I used and mix in your own, like leeks, parsnips, or possibly just all carrots and potatoes.
See what I mean?  I like to serve this dish family style with a green salad, some crusty bread that’s always used to scoop up some of the sauce.  No matter how you make it…just make it, then stand back, watch your family & friends enjoy a little something wonderful.

  1. I love these types of braised/roasted chicken dishes. And I really like the fact that you don't brown the chicken before popping it in the oven. Less mess. Pinned.

    • Thanks for stopping by Lea Ann. My family loves this dish and you are right – no browning needed, just add what veggies you like and let the oven do all the work!
