Hi friends! It’s a sunny and warm Tuesday here in the Great State of Michigan! It’s almost time for school to start and you can feel an energy as folks get ready to start another year. We’ve been busy around here too, and yesterday we were feeling kind of drained and so I fixed one of our favorite comfort meals, Baked Chicken and Vegetables! It’s such an easy dish to prepare, and just hits the spot when you are tired and hungry. So I thought I would share it with you on the blog today! So without further ado, let’s begin!
- 1 large pack of chicken (we used thighs, a 10 pack- use what you know you will eat)
- 6-7 potatoes (one for each person eating plus a couple extra)
- 4-6 stalks of celery
- baby carrots (or carrots peeled and cut in chunks)
- 2 yellow onions
- 1 container chicken broth
- ground thyme
- salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425°. Place chicken in a large baking pan.
Peel and quarter the potatoes.
Arrange potato pieces in with the chicken.
Cut off tops and bottoms of onion, halve and quarter them.
Arrange onions with the meat and potatoes. Add in carrots, as many as you think you will like.
Wash and cut celery in pieces 2-4″.
Arrange in with other items.
Pour about half of the chicken broth over the chicken and vegetables.
Dust with salt, pepper and thyme.
Cover with tin foil.
Bake at 425° for about 1 hour, then remove foil and bake another 15-20 minutes or until the chicken looks golden brown.
That’s it! The house smells heavenly and you have a meal fit for a king! So let’s serve it up!
Oh doesn’t that look yummy? It does to me! (I just ate it last night, it’s fantastic!) Serve it up with some dinner rolls,
Maybe some lovely fruit!
This is such an easy dinner to put together, and its pure comfort!
How nice it is when you have had a really rough day to come home to a house full of the aroma of savory herbs and chicken and vegetables! For the hungry, the tired, the hurting, the worried, you walk in that door and are welcomed with open arms and a warm smile, and a delicious meal! With each bite, strength is renewed and so is the spirit. And you begin to feel human again. A warm meal is the utmost expression of love to the person who bears a burden or has a wounded soul. What a gift we can give when we lavish those we love with a truly delicious and comforting meal!
I hope you have a fantastic week! I’ll be back Friday for another Fashion Friday.

I don’t eat meat myself, but my dad does eat chicken and fish and –as a diabetic– a roasted chicken dish with vegetables would be right up his street. I will definitely have to pass this along to him.
Great post! x
Thank you kindly, Michelle! I hope he loves it!
