Chicken with Roasted Vegetables & Wild Rice

This is a great fall dish for a weeknight dinner or it’s nice enough to serve for company. Either way, it’s delicious! Chicken breasts nestled in together with sweet potatoes, crisp celery, parsnips, carrots and sweet onions. Roasting them all together couldn’t be easier. Then mix those sensationally seasoned veggies with some wild rice and you’ve got a crowd-pleasing side dish to go along with those oven roasted chicken breasts. A healthy, delicious meal for any occasion!

    Oh man…looks so delicious. Definitely my kind of meal. I’m a sucker for dark meat… so I’ll probably make this w/ breasts along with thighs, drumsticks… oh, and, I’ve never had parsnips! Everyone raves about them. Must try soon!!
