Five-Ingredient, One-Pan Roasted Chicken and Veggies is your solution when you’re in need of a simple weeknight family-friendly meal.

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share a delicious and extremely practical, doable, and delicious recipe from my amazing assistant, Clara Norfleet of food fitness & faith, share her Five-Ingredient, One-Pan Roasted Chicken and Veggies for this month’s Recipe Redux post.

From Clara

This theme for this month’s Recipe Redux post focuses on recipes under 7 ingredients with the charge to “show us the healthy, no-brainer dish you fix for breakfast, lunch or dinner.”

As much as I strive to throw together a fun dish for dinner throughout the week, my dietetic internship, blog, social media, and extra work for Holley keeps my days very full. Sometimes I feel that crafting up creative meals becomes more of a daunting task than an enjoyable hobby. Tell me I’m not the only one?! Despite this, I still want to make sure I have a healthy and delicious meal on the table, so rather than calling in for take-out or pizza I resort to simple no-brainer dishes that are a breeze to throw together and get the nod of approval from my roommates and dinner companions.

One of my favorite no-brainer dishes to make when my brain is running on empty? This one-pan roasted chicken and vegetables. It has minimal hands-on time, speedy clean-up, maximum flavor, and is versatile so I can use whatever is in the fridge. Sounds great, right? The best part, though? You only need one hand to count the number of ingredients used. Now THAT’s some math I can get behind! A win all around, if you ask me! Throw all the ingredients onto a pan and into the oven, sit back and take a breather, and 30 minutes later pull out a well-balanced dinner complete dinner.


Do you have any easy, no-brainer meals that you default to during crazy times? I’d love to hear!
