One Sheet Chicken Roasted Vegetable Fall Dinner


FFComfortChicken3

Fall is definitely in the air as we continue to find our new routine. The girls started ballet class tonight and it was a whirlwind of energy at the studio. Molly's class is a comfortable size while Maggie's is insanely full. After walking back from class (which always takes forever even though it is 6 blocks), I put together a One Sheet Chicken Roasted Vegetable Fall Dinner that I have to share with you. I have been refocusing on the family meal and this one brought us right back to The New Comfort Food using Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken thighs and delicious roasted veggies. I may have especially liked that this dish used one pan to cook. My definition of The New Comfort Food - A modern interpretation of a classic comfort food dish, implying “comfort,” but with a modern, healthy twist. It’s about balance rather than indulgence.

I also love that I can serve my family Foster Farms Simply Raised fresh chicken which is locally grown in California and the Pacific Northwest with no antibiotics ever. It’s fresh, all natural chicken that is American Humane Certified and fed a 100% vegetarian diet, without any added hormones or steroids. Foster Farms has been family-owned since its founding 1939, Foster Farms has been committed to producing only the highest-quality poultry for you and your family.
It’s also local, partnering with local family farms in the Pacific Northwest (depending on consumer location) so you can be rest assured the chicken you’re buying is delivered fresh within 48 hours or less.

I'm excited to get back to making healthy comfort food for my family and sharing it with all of you. This Foster Farms chicken recipe is so good and I'm positive I'll see many of you making it later this week.
