Roasted Chicken and Vegetables
What an easy and tasty dish! Don't forget to let the breasts rest for about 10 minutes after you take them out of the oven, which ensures that all the delicious juices are secured inside the breasts. The roasted veggies were also very flavourful. Definitely a wholesome meal.
