One Pan Italian Chicken
Make your entire dinner using only one pan...and most of the time is hands-off cooking! Meals like this can be a lifesaver on a busy evening. Feel free to double or triple the recipe and eat it for a few meals, or use the roasted chicken and veggies as a shortcut other meals. I love recipes like this: one pan for the whole meal, and almost all the time is hands-off. Throw some veggies and chicken on a pan, pop in the oven, and half an hour later, you are eating a delicious, healthy dinner. Then there’s only one pan to wash, which is my favorite part.
- 2 raw chicken breasts, 6 ounces each (or chicken tenderloin, as pictured)
- 2 cups raw cauliflower, chopped
- 1 cup baby carrots
- 1 cup raw onion, chopped
- 3 tsp Italian seasoning blend (or less, as preference) (or 1 tsp dried basil, 1 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 dried rosemary, 1/2 tsp dried thyme, 1/4 tsp red chili flakes)
- 1 lemon (or 2 TBS lemon juice)
- olive oil for greasing the pan
- salt and pepper, to taste
- optional: balsamic vinegar reduction for serving (see our recipe)
- Preheat over to 400 degrees and grease a baking sheet with olive oil.
- Zest half the lemon (if using) and juice the whole lemon.
- Layer the chicken breasts on one side of the baking sheet. Assemble veggies on theother side, making sure that nothing overlaps to ensure even cooking.
- Sprinkle herbs, zest of the lemon, salt, and pepper liberally over meat andveggies.
- Cook in the preheated oven for 20-30 minutes until chicken is cooked through (keep an eye on it, as different thicknesses will cook more quickly). During the last 5 minutes of baking time, remove the pan from oven and squeeze lemon juice all over chicken and vegetables. Put back in the oven to finish cooking.
- Serve the chicken and veggies on two plates. This would be excellent over brown rice or barley!
- Optional: add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar reduction over both plates to take this to the next level!
