an oldie but a goodie

This recipe is all my all-time favorite go-to chicken recipe. It’s easy, impressive and best of all makes your house smell amazing! Right Julie? I give you…Rosemary Chicken.

Rosemary Chicken from Real Simple Magazine

1 pound new potatoes
2 carrots
2 small zucchini
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
1 bunch of fresh rosemary
4 (6-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts
Salt and Pepper

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Quarter the potatoes. Peel the carrots. Cut the carrots and zucchini into 2-inch sticks. Mix them in a bowl with olive oil, mustard, rosemary, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Season the chicken with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Place everything in a 9X13 baking dish. Roast for 25 minutes. Toss the vegetables, turn the chicken and continue roasting until chicken is cooked through, 20-25 minutes more.

    I just love using rosemary when roasting veggies — it smells and tastes so good!

    Wow, that sounds delish Kelly! But the chicken doesn’t dry out at that temp/time? I usually bake chicken breasts for just 30 minutes at 350 and they are definitely well cooked – sometimes I have to reduce the time to 25 minutes if the breasts aren’t that thick.

      I buy really thick breasts and it works fine. I followed the recipe exacly as Real Simple printed it. I am sure you could reduce the cooking time if need be.

    That recipe looks fantastic! I love simple, flavorful dishes like this.

    And from your recent 30 day challenge post – I feel the same way about moving. I have lived in GA my entire life. Both Peter & my families are here. I know it could be exciting to try someplace new and people think its crazy I’ve lived in one place for forever, but I have no desire to move. I love where I live. I can completely relate!

    LOVE roasted veggies. This recipe reminds me of my family – my mom would also roast meals on Sunday afternoons. Mm…

    As for your recent post, I’ve heard such great things about Austin. My husband visited there last spring on a business trip and really enjoyed it!
