Who loves a one pan meal? ME! In the midst of three children, school, homework, activities, teaching, owning a business, and LIFE I love a one pan meal. There is a little chopping prep up front, but once it’s in the oven you are done! I add lots of fresh herbs to the veggies and stuff the chicken with orange and mint- a little spiced honey glaze and you’ve got a winner winner chicken dinner!
