Italian Chicken And Veggie Bake

Dinner cannot get any easier than this! Well, maybe those cereal-for-dinner nights can trump the simplicity of this stuff.  You can adjust it your family’s preference by adding in different veggies. My boys love this with broccoli, green beans, bell peppers, onions, zucchini and Yukon potatoes however, one of my boys hates cooked onions and bell peppers so he just picks them out.  Just keeping it real! I fried up the leftovers with  some scrambled eggs on the side for Lord Business’ breakfast, and he loved it!  My oldest son, who is my excellent eater, (he’s 10…so you know) can down a ton of this and asks for leftovers in lunch the next day. Mom win!  Have I sold you yet on this recipe?  Can I call it a recipe with how easy it is?  It’s a perfect balance of savory and tiny touch of sweetness.  I love how the broccoli gets crispy and brown and that the chicken stays juicy.   Also, Sriracha on this stuff….delicious. Serve with some fruit and dinner is dunzo! You can find the Italian salad dressing mix over by the powdered ranch dressing packages at the grocery store.
