Simple Roast Chicken Breasts with Spring Vegetables

Even though this particular iteration of our blog is still fairly young, I’ve been blogging about food and recipes off and on for about seven years. Even friends who don’t know that we have this blog see enough food pictures flash across our social media feeds to know Scott and I are foodies and we love to cook.

Sometimes, that translates into the idea that we’re food snobs. The kind that won’t eat something unless it takes forever to make and is meticulously organic and takes seven hundred ingredients and…you get the idea.

But really…food snobs? Us? Being foodies means we like food. And it doesn’t have to be fancy to be good. Sometimes the simple things are the absolute best ones.

Take these one-pan roast chicken breasts and vegetables. It’s one of our favorite meals to cook up when we have friends or family over for dinner, because we can prep it in about five minutes, stick it in the oven, and open a bottle of wine and socialize around the table while it does its thing. The chicken comes out deliciously flavorful and the vegetables come out rich and savory.
