1lb chicken thighs or legs
Vegetable of choice, I used a head of broccoli and half of a red pepper, you can use green beans, squash, cauliflower....
2 medium sized red potatoes or sweet potatoes (you can use white potatoes, but they don't have as many nutrients and are higher in starch content)
How to cook it:
Cut your veggies and finely dice your potatoes, so they can cook faster. In a 13x9 baking dish, place the chicken thighs on one side, the veggie in the middle and the potatoes on the other side. Add seasoning, I used lemon pepper, to the whole dish. Add 5 pats of butter throughout the dish. Bake at 350F for 45-60 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are soft. Cooking time will vary based on the size of the chicken and potatoes. Enjoy with a side salad for extra greens!
I left these for E to cook while I wasn't home, and wrote the directions on top.
When we make this, E eats the potatoes, but I skip them. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates and promote weight gain. Chicken is a great lean meat, but make sure to buy chicken that is hormone free and free range. God made animals for us to enjoy and use, but I don't think he wanted us to torture them first! Remember that green beans are actually a legume and are an inflammatory food.
