Why this Chicken and Vegetable recipe is so great

Use any vegetables you’d like. This is my favorite thing about this recipe. You can use any vegetables you prefer. It’s a great way to clear out your refrigerator too! You can make this recipe so often without getting bored of the flavor – just switch up your veggies. I used carrots, celery, onions, and mushrooms for this recipe. 

Use any part of the chicken, too! You can totally use a whole chicken like I did, and cut it into pieces. Or if you’d like, you can use just chicken thighs or chicken breasts. 

Use your favorite spices. This dish can be as spicy as you’d like. Don’t like too much spice? Use spices that will enhance the flavor without packing too much heat. 

You see, this chicken and vegetable recipe can absolutely be custom-tailored to your taste. Recreate this dish with your favorite veggies and spices. Just place in your oven-safe bag and bake. You’ll have a full meal ready after it’s baked. You don’t have to do anything else. Just serve and enjoy!
