Autumn Roasted Chicken Dinner

Monday’s are usually a little manic. haha! When I can add simplicity to something…I am all in!

I like to start our week with a meal plan that usually happens Saturday or Sunday morning. I shop on Sunday afternoons and then prep what I can for the week ahead. So last night I chopped my sweet potato and brussel sprouts so my assembly would go a little quicker today.The more I prepare, the better choices we make as a family and the less stress I have putting dinner together! This is a huge win for me because there are enough tasks at hand with a family of 6.

A family-friendly meal made all in one pan! Perfect addition to a busy fall schedule!


Tonight’s dinner was inspired by a recipe from Cooking Classy. It’s a great dish all roasted in one pan!! YES!!! Are you dancing around because I just saved you on dishes?

I adjusted the original recipe a little because I didn’t have all the of the same ingredients and it came out lovely!! The balsamic vinegar marinade matched up perfectly with the brussel sprouts.


I must say it was a HIT! My 4 and 6 year old boys refused to eat the brussel sprouts, but my girls actually liked them. My 11 year old said it reminded her of a “fancy dinner.” SCORE!!!
Fast, family-friendly and delicious are recipes that I add to our family cookbook of go to dinners. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
