Roasted Chicken & Veggies... Seriously???

(OK... the veggies were for me and the cherubs... we all know the big guy is "allergic".) 

This recipe probably doesn't even need to be posted because it's such a no-brainer, but I figured it may be a good reminder for those crazy days when you need a nice, easy meal... and it makes the house smell soooo good!!

Honestly, this is so easy, even hubby could do it... (but he won't). 

Roasted Chicken & Veggies

Use whatever quantities you wish:

Chicken Breasts, bone-in, skin on
Assorted Veggies:  I use white potatoes, peeled and cut; sweet potatoes, peeled and cut; onions, cut in half; large garlic cloves, whole; carrots, peeled; rib celery; cherry tomatoes, whole.

Place everything on shallow baking pan (DO NOT use one without an edge...  you'll set your damn house on fire!)  Sprinkle GENEROUSLY with salt and ground, black pepper (and/or any other seasoning blend you enjoy).  Drizzle with olive oil.  Place in pre-heated 400' oven.  Roast for approx. 45 minutes (until chicken is dark brown and crisp).  Remove chicken from pan.  Increase oven temperature to 450'.  Carefully turn over vegetables and cook for additional 15 minutes. 
 I am convinced that there is nothing yummier than beautifully caramelized sweet potatoes.... absolute heaven!
