Comfort Food: Quick One Pan Baked Chicken and Veggies

This one pan baked chicken and veggies recipe comes from an old college friend, thirty years ago. I was living with two other girls in a first floor apartment, and three of our guy friends lived directly above us. One of the guys made dinner for us. It was one of those great comfort food dishes his mom made all the time. This is how I remember the dish.

In my friend’s version, he used a glass baking pan. Back then the carrots and potatoes were the standard white potatoes and orange carrots.

I think the key to cooking this way is trying to get your items to be similar in size so that they cook within the same time frame.

In my case, I purchased colored carrots which were thin and multi-colored small potatoes. If the veggies you purchase are quite large, simply cut them up into smaller chunks.

In fact, that is exactly the way I remember my friend’s yummy home cooked baked chicken recipe.

Here’s the recipe:

  1. The day before yesterday, Wed. I think, have to see what the phone say’s, I was right! I was trying to find something different to make with chicken. I ended up with Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Noodles, good but plain.
    Now, this really looks good, and it’s also pretty! It looks easy, and wouldn’t take too long to make. That’s my kind of meal!
    I’m putting it on a Post-it on the Fridge for next time.
    Thanks Patti, Donna

    • Hi Donna,

      I’m so glad you like this recipe and it is so easy. After all, if you can make it in a tiny college apartment how difficult can it be. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
