Roasted Chicken Dinner (SO EASY!!!!)

This Roasted Chicken Dinner recipe is the perfect one-pan-meal. The tender and juicy chicken is roasted with garlic and herbs and the accompanying vegetables are baked underneath the chicken. It’s a hands-off meal that is easy to prep, so satisfying and versatile as it can be made with any veggies you have on hand. Made in partnership with my friends at Shenandoah Valley Organic!

Roasted Chicken Dinner

Look no further, this is your dinner tonight! This Roasted Chicken Dinner is such an essential recipe that everybody should have in their back pocket! It features a bunch of in-season vegetables roasted with garlic underneath an herb and butter chicken that is made easy with hands-off roasting and can be made for a weeknight dinner or a dressed up for a fancy meal. Sometimes simple is the best, and this classic recipe is it.

I love this because you can also customize with whatever vegetables you have on hand. Here we used the classic combo of carrots, potatoes and onions (which caramelize and add a special layer of flavor) but really you can use any seasonal vegetables like fennel, parsnips or butternut squash!

What is the best way to roast a whole chicken?

We love to roast the chicken and the fixins all in the same pan! It’s easy prep and easy clean up. Simply:

  1. Add vegetables to the bottom of the pan with oil and salt.
  2. Prepare the chicken by removing giblets and excess fat, season and place in pan.
  3. Bake!

I am so happy to partner with my friends at Shenandoah Valley Organic to bring you today’s whole Roasted Chicken Dinner recipe! SVO is my go-to trusted chicken company because they pride themselves in producing the highest quality chicken grown on family-owned farms.

Their chickens are humanely raised and fed a diet free from animal byproducts, pesticides, and antibiotics. On their website you can see where all of the farms are located, so you know just where your chicken was raised! Pretty cool if you ask me!

roast chicken with vegetablesUse their easy store locator to find where you can get this amazing quality chicken near you! Plus, I just love the taste of this chicken! It’s just superior!

How do I season my roast chicken?

We went with classic flavors of herb and butter! We used the herbs from my garden: sage, thyme and scallion. We also went heavy on the garlic with 9 whole cloves both on the chicken and with the vegetables. And of course, lots of salt and pepper.

We use butter in this recipe, but if you are dairy free give it a try to use avocado oil in it’s place.

    One-Pan Shrimp and Green Beans in Chinese Garlic Sauce

    One-Pan Shrimp and Green Beans in Chinese Garlic Sauce

    I love healthy versions of my favorite Chinese food recipes! Growing up, we often ordered Chinese food, and while I have a clear memory of how delicious it was, it’s obvious now how unhealthy those dishes can be. This garlic sauce is thick and flavorful, and reminds me so much of a yummy oyster sauce I used to order as a kid!

    Shrimp and Green Beans in Chinese Garlic Sauce

    Prep Time 0:05 Cook Time 00:15 Serves 4

    Ingredients

    Directions

    1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add green beans and season with salt and peppers. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until beginning to soften. Reduce heat and carefully pour 1/4 cup water in hot skillet (it will sputter, so be careful of steam) and cover pan with a tight fitting lid to steam for 10 minutes. Monitor carefully to make sure the water does not completely evaporate before the beans have steamed, adding more if necessary so they do not burn.
    2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together coconut aminos, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and sriracha and set aside.
    3. In a separate small bowl whisk arrowroot and 4 teaspoon water to make a slurry to thicken the sauce. Set aside.
    4. Once beans have steamed, uncover and add shrimp and toss. Add in coconut aminos sauce ingredients, mixing to ensure it cooks evenly.
    5. When shrimp has cooked through, add in slurry and bring to a simmer to thicken. Once thickened, immediately remove from heat.
    6. Serve hot and serve over cauliflower rice or white rice.

    One-Pan Chicken in Mushroom Sauce

    This month it’s all about one-pan meals because they are just the best! Who wants to come home and clean up multiple pans and dishes after a long day? Not this girl! This One-Pan Chicken in Mushroom Sauce makes for a delicious weeknight dinner that everyone will love. Serve it up with a side of roasted veggies, over white rice or cauliflower rice, or even with some zucchini noodles!

    One-Pan Chicken in Mushroom Sauce

    One-Pan Chicken in Mushroom SauceP.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!
