Reviews for Pan-Roasted Chicken and Vegetables
"This recipe is so easy and delicious! Perfect for a busy weeknight or even when you have company. The roasted spinach and potatoes give it that Ina Garten touch. Love it!"
"Very tasty and extremely easy!"
"I made it as written except I used Herbes de Provence instead of Rosemary b/c I was out of rosemary. This was great. My kids loved the chicken and my DH and I loved the whole meal. This would be easy to swap out different vegetables based on what you had."
"So good! Love the spinach, and the versatility of this recipe. Perfect as is, or can add or switch out veggie options depending on what you have on hand. Carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus....so many options! Easy prep, easy clean up too!"
"Delicious! Tasty, easy, & so good. Didn't change a thing - great flavor, and moist chicken! Nice option for company and a great 1 pan meal. A new favorite & will definitely make again!"
"Made this last night and it was terrific! I did not have potatoes but added baby carrots and accompanied with rice. I used poultry seasoning in place of rosemary, doubled the garlic and the paprika. Will make this again and try other veggies like Brussels sprouts and kale."
"A very quick and easy meal that tastes great"
"This was excellent! Loved the flavor! I didn't change a thing, roasted for 40 minutes, a few more minutes after adding spinach. Everything was perfect, the chicken very moist. Along with a roasted acorn squash made an excellent meal!"
"Very nice recipe. Made as is, but next time I will add other veggies with the meal."
"This was good for a quick and easy weeknight meal. We added green beans and a little freshly ground nutmeg and crushed red pepper flakes on the spinach."
