This time of year I get all sorts of ideas for elaborate dinners, perfect presents, cookies baking in the oven, and a Pinterest-worthy decorated home. Let's get real for a second. No one can have all of those things and still sleep. For this reason I love meals like this rosemary chicken and potatoes. This entire meal is made in one pan! The meal turns out elegant and beautiful, while the prep time is around 10 minutes.
When I make this Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes meal it is a huge hit! My husband loves it and so do my kids. Be warned - when you make this meal - your home will be filled with the aroma of rosemary and chicken and your mouth will water until it is done cooking.
I like to pair the rosemary chicken and potatoes with some simple roasted asparagus. I also like to pair savory spices like rosemary with a glass of ice cold milk. Growing up we always drank milk with dinner and I still enjoy doing so today. Milk has always been a favorite of mine - it seems to be the perfect pairing for so many flavors - which is why when got milk? reached out to us to post about milk, I jumped at the chance!
rosemary chicken is a great pair to milk
My kids love milk too. I always smile when they order milk at a restaurant rather than a sugary drink. The calcium and vitamin D are so good for their little bones and I definitely do not feel guilty about what they are putting into their growing bodies when they drink a glass of milk. For a fancy holiday dinner, it doesn't get more simple than this one pan rosemary chicken paired with a fancy glass of milk. Your family will love it, and you'll love it knowing you're serving your family a healthy and delicious meal.
This month my focus is not going to be on pretty tied ribbons, impeccable decor, or bakery quality cookies - but rather to spend time with the people who matter most. Dinner at the table is the thread that binds a family together. Dinner can be fancy without being hard. I hope you'll try this simple rosemary chicken this month instead of slaving away in the kitchen.
