Herb Roasted Chicken

Wow... after a day like today I was
in the mood for a easy, one dish meal.

After being at the local DMV this morning
for third time, I still didn't have what I 
needed to switch our car title over to our names.
I left DMV trying to smile and not get grouchy.
I was setting at a stoplight and BANG!
The man driving the car obviously wasn't paying
attention and ran into me. It left two nice
big marks of my paint on his bumper, but 
my little car didn't have much damage.

We exchanged information and drove off.

For dinner I threw some chicken and vegetables in a dish
and made a herb sauce to pour over it.
My hubby kept saying how good it was to
the point I had to ask if he was putting
on to make me feel good. He affirmed the
truth and kept eating.

Colorful, easy and tasty.

Soft, juicy and savory. Ok, I'll stop with the cheesy adjectives.

Herb Roasted Chicken

5 chicken thighs
1 onion, chunked
1 sweet potato, chunked
3 red potatoes, chunked

1/2 cup of melted butter
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp. fresh parsley

Lay chicken and vegetables in a 9 x 13. Melt butter
and add spices. Pour sauce over chicken and vegetables.
Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours.

Enjoy the easiness,




  1. Sorry about your disappointing day; however, I'm thankful for you that you weren't hurt. The one dish meal looks so good and easy! I'm ALL about that these days with college, mounds of assignments and working. I've never seen sweet potatoes added to a dish like this but I love sweet potatoes so that's not a problem!

  2. You are a good woman/wife! After a day like that there's NO way I would have cooked!... we'd be calling for pizza! [Glad you are alright!]
    - Trying this recipe for Sunday noon! :)

  3. Just tried your recipe (in a crock pot for Sunday lunch because I still haven't taken the time to figure out my time bake). It was delicious, but probably even better "roasted" in the oven. Thanks for the recipe!!

  4. Oh, and this weekend was the first I ever saw your blog, but hope to check back regularly! (Jenny K recommended you.) :)

  5. I tried this the other night and it was wonderful! The kids loved it so I'll be making it again. -Just came across your blog a few weeks ago. love it.

  6. Hi Hope-
    If it makes you feel any better, I had to go to the DMV multiple times when I was trying to get my license changed from Ontario after we got married and the third time, I was so frustrated I cried. I think the lady felt bad, but "I have to follow the rules." My sister-in-law also had to go three times before she had what she needed to change her name. So maybe it is our DMV and not you?!

  7. This looks so delicious! Just wondering if you bake it uncovered...Thanks!
