One Pan Chicken Dinner

This is a recipe that I believe I got from a Raley’s magazine. I apologize that I don’t remember exactly, I had tore it out of a magazine and so I do not have the actual source.

I recently tested this recipe on some dinner guests (normally a bad idea to try and untried recipe on guests, but it worked out well for me in this case) and I loved it! It was so fast and easy to do. It took me a little longer in prep because I was using a whole chicken and had to watch a youtube video on how to quarter a chicken. In spite of that it was still quite fast. I was able to have the table set and kitchen cleaned quite a while before the guests arrived.

I also could not find Yukon Gold potatoes and wasn’t certain which ones were yellow fleshed so I grabbed bag of small potatoes that looked yellow to me. They were delicious. It also took a trip around the vegetable aisle before I saw the word Parsnip and found out what they looked like. They only had one choice at my store, some very fat Parsnips, so I grabbed two. It was plenty.

The original recipe didn’t have Rosemary, that was my addition.

How do you explain yourself in a short paragraph. What should I talk about? My love for Jesus? The fact that I am fascinated with tea and all that comes along with it? Should I explain that I am single? How do I capture my life in such a brief moment and still make it sound interesting?
