A couple of years ago my sister gave me 2 enamel roasting pans for Christmas and I love them so much.  They’re great because you can use them on the stove and in the oven, and they conduct heat so nicely so everything gets cooked evenly.  But I especially love them because they are perfect for making one pot dinners.  These dishes are a must for our kitchens…they really are.

One pot dinners that you can throw together in just minutes are a lifesaver, they truly are.  I just love how easy meals like this come together, but I also appreciate the quick clean up after dinner!  After a long day we shouldn’t be spending any more time in the kitchen than we need to.  So the less dishes needed to prepare dinner, the better I say.  I plan on making many more one pot meals to share with you!

One Hour One Pot Roasted Chicken Dinner

My first one pot recipe is this Roasted Chicken Dinner, with Seasonal Vegetables.  When I put this dinner together I thought it was maybe too simple to blog, but then I decided that NO this is exactly why I should blog it.  Aren’t we all in need of simple & healthy dinner ideas that take minutes to prepare?  Dinner does not need to be complicated to be delicious!

Farmers Market Vegetables 3

I was inspired to put this dish together after a recent visit out to a local market.  They had an amazing deal where you could load up a bag as shown above, with as many veggies as you could get into it, for only $10 a bag!  So I bought 2, and filled them with farm fresh potatoes, squash, beets, carrots and onions.  I envisioned trays of roasted vegetables for dinner, served up with roasted chicken…the perfect fall dinner.

This recipe is great as a stand alone dinner, but if you feel like it you can obviously serve it up with some fresh buns or a green veggie.  I made brussel sprouts as you can see in the background but that was strictly for recipe development reasons LOL…stay tuned for that recipe.  #lifeofafoodblogger

This roasted chicken dish came out beautifully!  It’s seasoned just right so all the delicious flavours of the roasted vegetables combined with the roasted chicken made this dinner an instant family favourite.  I can’t wait to make it again.

    I love recipes like this for a couple of reasons. It is fall and it is the perfect time for comfy food. It takes advantage of Farmer’s Market veggies. Most of all, it is something you can prepare and cook ahead of time go do something else and have a warm tasty meal for dinner. i got this!

    Hi Jo-ann, I live in Calgary too and was just wondering if you could tell us what farmer’s market you went to. A giant bag of veggies for $10 is a steal of a deal. Thanks, Karen

      Hi Karen! This is from the Saskatoon Farm just south of Calgary! It’s such a great deal!

    having no great oven-proof skillet like yours I’m wondering: this should work fine in a basic casserole dish, right? And you didn’t cover it?
    thanks!

    Yum, this looks so full of flavor! I dont do many meals like this and I really should! My kids and husband are big veggie eaters so I think this would be a hit! Thank you so much for sharing with us at #ThrowbackThursday, we hope to see you again this week!
