Awesomely Simple Roast Chicken Recipe | 3 Step, No Prep!

roast-chicken-recipe

 

Jamie here! Bi-Lo has whole chickens on sale this week for 89¢/lb – I’m picking some up to make my simple roast chicken and thought I’d re-share it in case you missed it before :)

Jamie here, if you’re looking for a simple roast chicken recipe – here’s your guy.  No kidding – if I’d ever realized in the early years of marriage that making a beautiful roast chicken was this easy, I would’ve saved my husband from years of Hamburger Helper :)

I learned this tip from my friend Meg, who is an amazing cook and the type of woman you secretly kind of hate, who makes a home-cooked dinner every. single. night.  She’s also cute  - which is just unfair (right?).  But while hanging out with her recently she told me that she roasts chicken pretty often to make chicken salad for the week – or soup, tacos, pasta or other recipes.

After she shared her secret, I had to try it right away.

Rosemary Chicken and Veggies in Mustard Sauce Recipe

Rosemary Chicken in Mustard Sauce

I love easy recipes! Especially those that I can throw in one pan together and bake so I can focus on other tasks at hand. This recipe for Rosemary Chicken and Veggies in Mustard Sauce turned out amazing!! I used all fresh veggies including carrots, onions, red potatoes, and green beans. You could use any kind of chicken you want, however my kids requested legs (which I hate) so I bought a whole cut up chicken. Serve with a simple green salad for a healthy easy dinner.

Low Carb Chicken Recipes: Baked Chicken Fajitas

easy baked chicken fajitas

Recently, I’ve seen all kinds of yummy looking recipes all over facebook.  Since many are shared, and not linked to the original source I am a little leary of trying the recipe.  So, when a recipe gets my attention I prefer to test it out in my kitchen.

Of course I am not a great recipe follower, so I tend to change up the ingredients a bit to suit my family’s taste.  We loved this recipe,  although it was a little spicy.  I made homemade Mexican Brown rice to serve with the Baked Chicken Fajitas to complete the meal.  If you are looking for low carb chicken recipes,  I would suggest serving the chicken fajitas in lettuce wraps or whole grain tortillas.

Apricot Chicken with Broccoli and Asparagus Recipe

Apricot Chicken Recipe

Kasey here, as we continue on our journey of healthy eating I am always trying to come up with new recipes that my family will love. Last night, I made Apricot Chicken with broccoli and asparagus and it was amazing!! This recipe was inspired by Olive Garden’s Venetian Apricot Chicken, however I have made several adjustments to the recipe to make it easier to prepare.
