One-Pot Roasted Chicken & Veggies | a GREAT family meal | #paleo

I know it’s hot out there for some of you and you are craving popsicles & salads. Well guess what….sometimes you need a hearty meal too. One that takes a little while to cook, but no hovering over. A meal all ready prepared ~ so you can reach into your fridge & grab it, that way you can get on with more important things.

This One-Pot Roasted Chicken & Veggies is sooooo simple to prepare. Go ahead & toss some on your salad.

I asked my awesome pal Jesse Morris from the blog KillerChefs what the heck to do with a chicken I bought recently….this is his great idea.

Sometimes I listen, sometimes I don’t.

I listen to Jesse ’cause he really knows great food & good cookin’.

He is a chef & also a hunter ~ so I trust. Hence his blog name KillerChefs.

Jesse was the head chef at the fabulous restaurant Roy’s. He knows stuff.

I often ask him cooking questions and he answers back quickly with great ideas. You can ask him questions too on his Facebook page.

This chicken is perfect for those on grain-free, gluten free and Paleo meal plans.

What you got here is a protein packed, veggie rich meal.

So even though it takes a little while in the oven, it is worth it’s while to have great food at the ready.

I can take extra time to my mountain views & smell a delicious meal cooking in the oven.

The kids can play outside while it cooks. You can run around the house doing whatever it is you need to do.

Or you can sit and have a cocktail.

I like to serve our chicken over these pretty sunflower sprouts.

We LOVE sunflower sprouts |

You can also go with a salad, pasta, quinoa, hunks of crusty bread or rice. Your choice.

Enjoy your chicken!

One-Pot Roasted Chicken & Veggies


  • 4 pound Chicken, remove giblets, clean & pat dry
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Onion
  • Parsnips
  • any vegetables you like best
  • Garlic Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive Oil


  • Pre heat oven to 450 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Pour some oil over the chicken & rub it in. Season with garlic salt & pepper. Chop vegetables into bite sized pieces. Place the chicken in the center of a Le Creuse or a high temperature bake-safe pot. Toss the vegetables with olive oil, garlic salt & pepper. Arrange the vegetables around the chicken.
  • Bake chicken & veggies covered, for about 1 hour 30 minutes or until your chicken is cooked through. Un-cover the pot and broil for about 5 minutes to brown the skin.
  • Serve with vegetables, a salad. Potatoes, quinoa, rice or pasta would be great with this too!
  • Notes
  • The Le Creuset pot I used is a great conductor of heat and perfect for this recipe. It is the enameled cast iron pot. Be sure not to use a lid with the phenolic knobs as they will burn.

Scrumptious looking! That is a tasty and colorful veggie bed. I’ve not eaten that kind of dish since far too long…

This sounds fantastic! And no matter what the temp, I love any excuse to get out my big Dutch oven!

I absolutely adore dishes like this!

I love easy one pot dishes especially with the weather being so warm. I love the mountain views they are breath taking…

Gosh, I never get tired of seeing your images of Telluride. You’re so lucky to live there. :)

Now for this pot-roasted chicken–my kind of meal. I’d rather have this than a popsicle any day!


11 Marta @ What should I eat for breakfast today June 5, 2013 at 7:35 am

I like that it’s easy. I’ll make it for dinner with friends, they will love it 😀

This is really beautiful Marla. How do those sunflower sprouts taste? I have never had them before?


13 Chef Louise "Geez Louise! Mellor June 5, 2013 at 8:02 am

Just saw this Marla, thank you for the mention. I grew up in Colorado, all my memories are set with mountains as the backdrop- lucky you. Blessings, Louise


14 Heather June 5, 2013 at 8:33 am

Well hell-O dinner tonight! :) Seriously, this sounds amazing and I’m all about the one-pot-edness (that’s a word, right?)


15 Jenny Flake June 5, 2013 at 9:20 am

Perfectly delicious!!


16 Laura (Tutti Dolci) June 5, 2013 at 9:30 am

I love roasted chicken and one-pot is even better ;).


17 kirsten@FarmFreshFeasts June 5, 2013 at 9:37 am

I love how a roasted chicken can be dinner one night and then so much more (thus far I’ve made chicken sushi, chicken jelly, and chicken salad from my latest chicken, and there’s enough for one more recipe). ((It was a big chicken.))
Both the chicken and your mountain views look enticing. And your pretty not-purple pot? Lovely. I’ll have to figure out if my knob is phenolic or not.


18 Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking June 5, 2013 at 10:27 am

This is SO my kind of meal, Marla! Perfectly simple and easy, but very flavorful! See ya tomorrow at the Ziplist dessert party. 😉


19 Carla @ Carlas Confections June 5, 2013 at 10:30 am

Those sprouts are so pretty! I love how wholesome this meal is :)


20 Nami | Just One Cookbook June 5, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Wow your roasted chicken & vegetables are gorgeous! The chicken is perfectly roasted and I love to add all kinds of root veggies. I have to try this recipe soon!


21 kelley {mountain mama cooks} June 5, 2013 at 12:56 pm

Absolutely gorgeous, Marla! The beauty of a ski town is it’s never too hot to turn on the oven for some down home cookin’. Enjoy!


22 Heather @ French Press June 5, 2013 at 1:15 pm

that meal looks SO good; I can almost smell the chicken now,and with only one pot, my husband can’t complain about my kitchen mess:)


23 naomi June 5, 2013 at 2:12 pm

Such a perfect family meal!!!


24 MikeVFMK June 5, 2013 at 2:59 pm

That is one beautiful looking roasted chicken. And drink. And those mountains. Everything. Very pretty Marla!


25 Marla June 9, 2013 at 12:57 pm

Thanks so much Mike!


26 Bonnie K. June 5, 2013 at 5:13 pm

Thank you for posting this. I have a chicken thawing in the fridge. I plan to bake it tomorrow.

Delicious supper idea!


29 Nutmeg Nanny June 12, 2013 at 8:38 am

Beautiful! This looks amazing, and I love one pot recipes :)


30 Linda June 13, 2013 at 10:34 am

I just love meals you can cook in one pot. It sure makes for easy cleanup. What a great healthy meal this is.


31 olivia February 10, 2014 at 4:19 pm

I’ve made this chicken now three times, and with different root veggies each time. This last time, I’ve made it with chicken thighs instead of the whole chicken since my local store was out of them. This is an AMAZING meal I never tire of. Thanks!
