Made in one skillet, this One Pot Roasted Rosemary Chicken with Fall Vegetables is full of flavor even though it only has seven ingredients, TOTAL. Yes, seven ingredients for the whole meal, and only one pan to get dirty. This is the perfect meal to make on a school night when you’re looking for something healthy, hearty and well balanced.
It is officially Fall and all the fantastic delicious flavors are ushering in to greet us. Cinnamon and nutmeg have taken over desserts, Rosemary and sage are the spices of the holiday season and sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts are taking over on the vegetable front. One thing that remains constant is the chicken, a flavor for all seasons and a perfect hero for our dish.
The chicken I am using in this dish is Foster Farms Simply Raised and I have to say I am pretty excited about it. Born and raised in California, Foster Farms has been the chicken I grew up eating. My mom has always been a huge supporter of local farmers, so each weekend we would go grocery shopping together to local markets who would bring fresh products in from their farms directly. I remember how she would comment that it was so fresh and it was more flavorful because of how close we were to the farm. I firmly believe that eating locally is not only a way to support your local farmers and the local economy, but I think having something in your meal that was picked or prepared less than 48 hours before is a sure fire way to have a more flavorful meal.
That is what Foster Farms strives for with their Foster Farms Simply Raised (without antibiotics). As a Californian I know that the chicken we are eating was raised in California and was given no antibiotics, fed an all vegetarian diet, delivered to the store in 48 hours or less and while I know this doesn’t impact the taste, I like knowing they’ve been around for over 75 years and the founding family’s grandson is in charge of the company.
So let’s get started on the meal! It is only 7 ingredients, but it won’t taste like it!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season both sides of the chicken thighs with kosher salt and black pepper to taste. I used about ½ teaspoon of each. Add the rosemary to the side without the skin.
Nestle the chicken back into the pan amongst the vegetables.
