Oven Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

 

IMG_2969

Today I spent the afternoon with my Aunt and cousin. We went to a quiet little town for lunch and shopping at unique little shops. This entire town was filled with beautiful flowers that are taken care of completely by volunteers. It was a very nice day with great company.

When I got home I had no idea what I was going to make for supper. I had a bag of fresh okra from our garden so I fixed it in the oven (recipe is in the vegetable category) and we ate it as an appetizer.

Meanwhile, I threw this Oven Roasted Chicken and Vegetables together. I adapted this recipe from a Lipton Onion Soup envelope recipe. (www.liptonsoup.com) It is very healthy and good, however, I don’t cook healthy too often. Although I adapted the recipe to my taste, I baked this the way the envelope said. The next time I fix it I will make a sauce or gravy to drizzle on top of it. I’m just a saucy kind of gal.

  1. We had a very fun day as the shops are unique, and I bought my first Christmas present. Your chicken looks like a very warm and homey dinner. Where did you find the energy to fix such a great dinner? I was tired but happy after our great day together.
