Chicken and Vegetable Bake

Do you ever have one of those days where supper is the last thing on your mind? I have them often. I’m trying to implement some sort of meal planning, but it hasn’t quite caught on yet. As soon as I get it all figured out I’ll post on that I’m sure. But for now I’ll just give you a recipe that, when you’re wondering what to fix for supper, is one that’s fairly easy to put together. Also, I’ve created a printable recipe, found at the bottom of the page.

Chicken & Vegetable Bake

 by: Once Upon A Dream Home

2 Lbs Chicken Legs, Wings, or Thighs (or any combination of)

1 Bell Pepper, Sliced

1 Large Yellow Onion, Chopped

5 Medium Potatoes, Cut into 1″ pieces

3 Carrots, Cut into 1″ pieces

3 Celery Stalks, cut into 1″ pieces

Olive Oil or Melted Butter to coat chicken and vegetables

Seasoning for Chicken and Vegetables (recipe below)

  • Preheat oven to 385 degrees. Spray large oven safe pan with cooking spray. 
  • Place chicken pieces in a large bowl and pour about 4 tbsp of olive oil or melted butter over chicken.  Mix with hands to coat chicken well. Sprinkle half of the seasoning mixture over the chicken and again mix with hands until seasoning is well-distributed.
  • Pour chicken and seasoning into prepared pan.
  • Place in the oven and bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
  • While chicken is baking, prepare vegetables the same way as chicken. Pour 3-4 tbsp olive oil or melted butter over vegetables. Sprinkle with remaining seasoning mixture. Toss to coat.
  • Once chicken has baked for 45 minutes, remove from oven  and add vegetables and seasoning to pan.
  • Return to oven and bake uncovered for an additional hour or until chicken is done.

Seasoning for Chicken and Vegetables

1/4 tsp Black Pepper

1/4 tsp White Pepper

1/2 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Paprika

1/4 tsp Onion Powder

1/4 tsp Sage ( Could also use Thyme and/or Rosemary

  • In a small mixing bowl, add all ingredients and mix well. 

I love that there is only one pan to clean after dinner. And the chicken is moist and delicious.

NOTE: I haven’t tried this with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. If you decide to try it, I would recommend that you cover the pan with foil while baking as it may dry out.
