Chicken and Veggie Bake

Hey guys!

This recipe might not be what you choose to serve at a dinner party, but for a household of two that wants a yummy dinner and leftovers … perfection!

Inexpensive, simple, and hardly any dishes….Ding Ding Ding WINNER!

Brett and I have reluctantly accepted the fact that our bazillion degree summer here in Texas is coming to an end.  Bye-Bye lakes, pools, back sweat, moist feet (ew), and boob sweat for the next six months.

Since there will be a lack of bikinis for the next few months, what better time to prepare for having to put them on and feel fabulous next summer?!

Bye Bye, Summer.

See ya next year.

This dish is great and could easily become a staple in your home.

We start with 3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts that have been marinated for 24 hours in some lemon juice and Tony Chachere’s Salt-Free Seasoning.

Peel up and chop your sweet ‘taters, grab your lemony chicken, and prep your 9×13 baking dish with a little ole spritz of cooking spray.  Chop your grape tomatoes in half and throw all that sh!t in the dish.  Easy peasy.

Prep!

Throw that big platter of healthiness in your preheated oven (375) for about 45 minutes.  Typically I wouldn’t bake boneless skinless breasts that long, but the sweet potatoes need a little more time, and the chicken remains juicy from the marinade and juices from the tomatoes, mushrooms, and broccoli.

Not the best pictures, but it sure was yummy!

This dish is nutritious as hell and freezes well.  Yup, I’m a poet… and I know it.

As healthy as it is, I don’t think it could offset our Texas State Fair food… ahhh the beautiful land of grease, questionable restrooms, and $30 things you didn’t even know you could fry.  I love you, Texas.
