Balsamic Roasted Chicken and Veggies


I love this sheetpan balsamic chicken and veggies dish for a quick healthy dinner. You can make it with practically any veggies you have on hand so this is a perfect “clean out the fridge” meal. I like to serve it over buttered noodles with a generous handful of shaved Parmesan cheese and a delicious slice of fresh ciabatta but you could certainly eat it as is for the healthiest option.
