Sometimes you just need a simple weeknight meal with hearty fall flavors and stick-to-the-ribs ingredients that are roasted together in one pan.

I know that a quick and easy weeknight meal is the holy grail this time of year.
Knowing how to roast a chicken is probably the easiest, but most impressive tool a chick can have in her recipetoire (i did coin that, and no, gentlemen, you’re not off the hook…i’m typing to you, too). I also love a good “one pot wonder” for any night. i was inspired by bon appétit to create this, and I must say, they are quite ingenious when it comes to recreating a classic meal. the key to this recipe is to give the whole chicken a quick sear in the very pan you’ll cook it in, to seal in the juices and make the skin crispy and, well, pretty perfect. throw in your favorite veggies to the mix and there you have it, dinner is served and you once again can rule the roost.
