Roasted veggies that taste good


Roasted Vegetables with Chicken in a Sweet Onion Sauce

  • red potatoes, cut into bite-size chunks
  • sweet potatoes
  • 1 onion, cut into chunks
  • baby carrots
  • tomatoes (I kind of thought these got too soggy though- it's personal preference)
  • mushrooms
  • green or red pepper or both
  • 1-2 chicken breasts
  • Vidalia Sweet Onion Dressing (I buy this at Sam's Club), or Honey Mustard, or any dressing you love
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place potatoes, carrots and onions on greased baking tray. Drizzle with dressing, salt and pepper.
  3. Cook for 20 minutes, then add the tomatoes, peppers and mushrooms. Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender, turning veggies in the pan every 15 minutes so they don't burn on the bottom.
  4. I cooked my chicken in the crock pot with a little dressing and then just cut it up last and added to the cooked veggies, tossing with a little more dressing.
We thought this was very tasty. A nice twist on a classic meal. Supposedly you can roast a ton of veggies one night and have them to eat for the whole week. I thought I cut up a lot but we ate them all! This onion dressing is really good, but this would be tasty with a lot of dressings, including ranch and honey mustard. We also like this dressing mixed in with tuna fish and eat it in sandwiches or with crackers.
