Country-Style Chicken & Veggie Bake

country baked chicken and veggiesThis is a great recipe that I wrote down years ago. I think I found it in an old magazine but I can’t be sure! What I am sure about is the fact that it is delicious! The vegetables are creamy and full of flavor, the chicken stays moist and juicy. I’ve never tried it with skinless chicken but I’m sure it would work. It’s a fairly cheap meal when you use chicken leg quarters! I think the fresh rosemary makes all the difference and try to make this as often as possible while I have some in the garden.

The list of ingredients may be long, but it does go into the oven quickly, prep usually takes about 20-25 minutes. You can certainly prep it ahead of time and throw it all together right before baking. I love that it has less cleanup since it’s a one pan dish! Gotta love that!
