I am so excited to be back today partnering with Quitter’s Circle, a collaboration between the American Lung Association and Pfizer, to bring you this hearty meal!
As I mentioned last week, although I’ve never personally been a smoker, members of my family still smoke, and I feel truly passionate about helping each and every one of you on whatever journey you may be on! Whether it’s trying to eat healthier, changing your diet for health reasons, quitting smoking cigarettes, or knowing somebody you’d like to help, I am here to help you on your journey and hopefully make your life easier!
If you love all things buffalo like I do, you will absolutely fall in love with this meal! Tender chicken drumsticks paired with roasted buffalo cauliflower, roasted carrots, and green peppers all made in one sheet pan!
Who needs a crazy dinner prep and then the clean up after a workday? Not us! Minimal clean up is just the best, and that’s just one of the reasons you’ll love this meal. Plus, it makes for great leftovers!
Place carrots, peppers, cauliflower and chicken in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken if the veggies aren’t fully tender, and let veggies cook for an additional 20 minutes.

Sheet pan dinners are the best because they minimize clean up by utilizing one cooking vessel and they make cooking hands off.

How to Make Herb Butter
An herb butter is a compound butter! A Compound butter is simply a mixture of softened butter and flavorful components like herbs and spices. For this salmon recipe we combine butter with a bunch of fresh herbs. We love using grass-fed butter like Kerrygold or Vital Farms, but really any butter you use will have an improved taste with the addition of herbs!
To make herb butter simply combine softened butter with the prepared herbs. You can make it up to 2 days ahead, if kept in the refrigerator.
Tips for Sheet Pan Cooking:
Read the recipe all the way through (of course) and plan to use a timer! Most recipes require different cooking times, so make sure to use a timer so you can truly walk away from the oven and not have to worry about when your adding anything in to the oven.
Do the prep ahead of time to make for a quick meal: Clean the vegetables and make the herb butter the night before or that morning if you are looking to speed up the process when it comes time for the actual cooking.
Use parchment paper to make clean up a breeze.
Use the correct size sheet pan. When we say sheet pan we are referring to the rimmed half sheet pan which is 18″ by 13″. The size of the sheet pan matters because you do not want to overcrowd the pan when cooking, so if you are using a smaller sheet pan you may need to use 2 to achieve the same result.

P.S. I really really love this ^ Pacific Foods Bone Broth. I always have it on hand for cooking and when I’m too lazy to make broth myself!
In other news, my laptop broke recently. At first this was okay because I have my desktop — but then yesterday it was gross and rainy outside, I wasn’t cooking/shooting and I had work to do. I wanted to work elsewhere for a change, like a cute little coffee shop. No could do, though. I decided to finally bite the bullet and got myself a brand new laptop and MAN, did I forget how nice it is working from anywhere!
In other, other news, I also purchased an Instant Pot (pressure cooker) because they are all the rage right now. I can’t wait to get cooking and experimenting with it. Do you have one? Can you tell me your favorite things to make in it?
Now, back to this dish…
It’s packed with aromatic veggies and a comforting sauce and oh so flavorful. It’s truly a perfect meal!
