I love meals that come together fast, and require one pan. Especially if it also tastes like it came from my favorite restaurant.

This meal is that. It’s as easy as chopping up a few veggies, tossing them with some chicken and the best seasoning blend, and then popping in the oven until done. So easy, and so amazing.

For this one, I used root vegetables — purple carrots, parsnips, golden beets, sweet potatoes — and Sayulita Steak and Veg seasoning. This blend is bold and kinda spicy, and holds up nicely to the hearty root vegetables. It’s a great weeknight meal when you just don’t want to think too much about what’s for dinner.

You can use whatever root vegetables you want here. Just try to cut them in even sizes so they cook evenly. If you only want one, that’s fine too. Versatile for the win!
