This one-dish meal tastes like it needs hours of hands-on time to put together, but it’s just minutes to prep the simple ingredients. The rosemary gives it a very rich flavor, and the meat juices cook the veggies to perfection. So easy! —Sherri Melotik, Oak Creek, Wisconsin

"Superb! Even my husband who disdains spinach loved it. I made two small changes: I used boneless thighs,because I had some, and fewer potatoes because we are watching carbs. I will love serving this again, and am very grateful to Sherri for sharing."

"Loved this and will now serve it to company this Friday. I used boneless thighs and added mushrooms and red peppers to the potatoes. All cooked in 30 minutes on parchment paper instead of spray oil. The spices are a perfect blend with the veggies and chicken."
