A hearty and flavorful paleo roasted chicken dinner doesn’t get much simpler than this…
Slide this one-pan meal into your oven and in about 40 minutes or less you’ve got hot and juicy chicken breasts along with a wholesome side of tender carrots and sweet potatoes ready to scoop up and enjoy.
This paleo recipe is designed to get healthy food on the table fast – without wasting your time with a lot of fussy prep work.
Chop up a few veggies and fresh herbs, mix up the simple seasonings, throw everything in the same pan, and you’ve got yourself a hot and nutritious meal.
I chose skin-on, bone-in breasts with rib meat for this recipe – but if you prefer dark meat, you can easily sub with bone-in chicken thighs.
I also went with my favorite veggies for this one, but you can select different root vegetables if you like. Good seasonal choices could include beets, celery root, rutabagas, or turnips – just be sure and peel and slice them into pieces before roasting.
And just one cooking tip: If the chicken roasts too quickly, loosely tent the pieces with aluminum foil until the thickest parts reach the proper internal temperature (for white meat, 160º F; for dark meat, 175º F.)
Give this easy paleo recipe a try sometime. It’s a really good one when you’re craving something hot, hearty and simple after a long day that comes together fast and makes cleanup a breeze.
