Oven Roasted Chicken With Vegetables | Delicious Baked Chicken Thighs & Drumsticks With Veggies
One thing that I love about baked chicken is that you can add a lot of vegetables to the baking sheet and cook it together with the chicken to get tasty and healthy side dish.
Baked vegetables will release it's flavor to the meat, making the chicken super delicious and 60 minutes in the oven will add vegetables that lovely caramelized taste.
Baking chicken with vegetables in the oven is very easy and is also great way how you can save some preparation and cleaning time because you need to use just 1 baking sheet to cook everything.
When choosing vegetables try to use ones that takes more time to cook like carrot, parsnip, celeriac, beetroot or ones that are great when grilled like onion, garlic, zucchini, egg plant or squash. And if you want to add some extra carbs to the meal as I did you can add in some potatoes or yams.
For the meat I prefer to use portioned chicken instead of cooking it whole because you can fit your vegetables in between the meat and vegetables will release it's flavors to meat and vice versa. Which gives you even deeper flavors.
I have baked chicken drumsticks and chicken thighs but if you decide to cook whole chicken you will have to adjust cooking times which changes with size of chicken.
