Herb Roasted Chicken and Asparagus

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Herb Roasted Chicken and Asparagus is one of those lovely one-dish suppers that I love to make. Making everything in one casserole is so easy. You toss in the ingredients, sometimes pour a sauce or vinaigrette over top, and then bake. Simple, easy, quick. And, it leaves plenty of time while the casserole is baking to attend to other things around the home. This one consists of chicken, asparagus, tomatoes, red potatoes, carrots, halvedĀ corn-on-the-cob, mushrooms, leeks, onions and garlic in a tasty vinaigrette.

My inspiration for this recipe always goes back to the very first recipe I made as a one-dish supper: Roasted Chicken with Rosemary. The inspiration for the vinaigrette sauce comes from this recipe. I have several of these one-dish supper entrees on my blog. Everyone uses a little different arrangement of veggies or sauce, but all use chicken. I enjoy making them because they are all healthy, lower calorie, gluten free recipes that are completely satisfying and filling. Plus it gives me the opportunity to eat more vegetables. šŸ™‚

If you enjoy the ease of a one-dish supper, or you need to make a meal for friends, Herb Roasted Chicken and AsparagusĀ is an excellent option. While I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, you can use a whole chicken or even turkey cutlets. I used a vast assortment of veggies, but you can change them up to suit you. I even have one recipe where I use sweet potatoes and green beans as the accompaniment to chicken. Yum. If you want your chicken to brown more while baking you may want to separate the chicken and veggies and put them in two separate baking dishes. You will have to cut down your cooking time however–maybe by as much as a half! Otherwise, just throw everything into your largest roasted pan or dish, bake and enjoy.

Bake uncovered at 350 for approximately 2 hours, or until chicken and veggies test done. (The more you have in the dish the slower it will cook).

If you want your chicken to brown more then you’ll probably want to put the veggies in a separate casserole dish while baking. I liked the flavor of all the veggies and chicken cooked together.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you want the chicken to brown more, then separate the chicken and veggies into two different dishes. The cooking time may decrease by 30-60 minutes, so be careful to start checking after an hour of cooking.

NOTE: If you don't have fresh herbs for the vinaigrette, substitute about a half teaspoon of dried herbs for each.
