It’s a dish I make all year round, and makes for a really great ‘make ahead’ dinner that can be made on a Sunday and then served for lunches/dinners throughout the weekend (yay for healthy meal prep recipes!)

Adding chicken breasts to carrots and potatoes

In the summertime months, there are so many great Farmer’s Market where we live in Milwaukee.  So what I love to do is pack up the family and take a trip every week to our local Farmer’s Market.

One of our very favorite Farmer’s Markets in the Milwaukee area is the West Allis Farmers Market.  I frequently post pictures of it on my instagram (like here) because I love it so much.

With all the fresh vegetables I get, I love to just roast them in the oven for dinner, I have made this over and over and over because it is so simple and full of flavor (the carrots I get are both yellow and orange!)

What are some other great chicken dinners with vegetables?

I use a Pyrex baking dish like this because after I’m done baking it and want to store leftovers in the fridge, I just put the lid on it. These baking dishes with lids are truly my favorite ones and I use them ALL the time.

This recipe is made with large chicken breasts. If the chicken you're using is on the smaller or thinner side, I would recommend adding it halfway through cooking as to not dry out the chicken. You could also add in a can of crushed tomatoes or cream of chicken soup if you like a saucier dish, I happen to love the roasted quality of this dish without any sauce.[br]I use this 4.8 quart pyrex baking dish
