These one pan recipes are all over the blogosphere lately and I’ll be honest, we make a whole heck of a lot of one pan meals but this one always ends up being our favorite.

What Vegetables are Best for Roasting?

Root vegetables — like potatoes, parsnips, sweet potatoes, and carrots — are old standbys when it comes to roasting, of course, but take a look through your crisper drawer and you’ll find all sorts of roasting candidates — from crucifers like broccoli and brussels sprouts to surprises like zucchini, onions, bell peppers, and cabbage.

Even tomatoes can be roasted.

Look at that dressing!!! Doesn’t it look fantastic?! I love fresh food. I just love it. And our bodies love it. The more we’ve focused on veggies for our meals that more we’ve craved them. IT’S TRUE! I know you’ve heard that before but processed foods really do lose their appeal.

Freezing Onions

I must make a quick note before I forget. Do you see those red onions? You can chop onions, red onions or even throw in shallots, but in this case we’ve used frozen, sliced red onions. Whenever I chop or slice onions I do an extra and throw it into the freezer in a plastic bag. Whenever I need onions I just pull them out. They work just as good as fresh. #winning

Our favorite part about one pan meals is that it’s the best way to clean out the pantry, fridge and even freezer. In this recipe we’ve used the last breast of chicken, a remaining sweet potato as well as russet potato, plus some frozen butternut squash, brussels sprouts and broccletts because I don’t know about you, but I always see the beautiful produce at Costco and forget that our small family just cannot eat a whole bag of brussels or broccoli!

A simple dressing can be whisked up by combining olive oil, lemon juice and a touch of salt and pepper. We love to stir in fresh parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning but you can do whatever you are in the mood for, lemon pepper, Greek seasoning and so on. Heck, we often do just salt and pepper.

Now toss it all together on a pan and bake it for about 40 minutes and enjoy! This is often my lunch the next day as well. A win again if you ask me.
