Have Dinner Already Ready!

February 3, 2019

Some places have sales just to get items out of the store.  When we put a special price on something, it’s because we know it’s at its peak of freshness, and when you bring them all together, you get a great meal!  This is the time of year for heartier veggies like yams and brussel sprouts.  This week is a great week to visit Fresh Madison Market and start building some meal prep boxes.  See how easy it is with this great idea  that gets high marks at Tasty:

One Pan Chicken Veggie Meal Prep

Shopping list for this recipe:

  • Broccoli (Green Giant Steamers are just 3 for $5)
  • Fresh brussel sprouts ($1.99/lb)
  • Southern yams (89¢/lb)
  • Organic carrots ($2.49 for 2lbs)
  • Gerber Amish fresh bone-in split chicken breast ($1.99/lb)


  1. Preheat oven to 425˚F (220˚C).
  2. Cut vegetables. Place each in a separate corner of a baking pan lined with parchment paper (NOTE: Broccoli and Brussels sprouts cook faster, keep the cuts thicker for those. Sweet potato and carrots take more time - dice them, or cut them thinner).
  3. Season veggies with olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, and garlic.
  4. Season both sides of the chicken with olive oil, salt, pepper, and the remaining rosemary, thyme, and garlic over parchment paper.
  5. Seal parchment paper to keep chicken moist, and place on the center of the baking pan.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked and veggies are done to your liking.
  7. This meal works great with brown rice, so feel free to add some to your meal prep as well.
  8. Unwrap and slice the chicken.
  9. Separate veggies into each tupperware with chicken.
  10. NOTE: If using plastic tupperware, allow food to cool down first
  11. Can be refrigerated up to 4 days.

Meal prep is a great way to save time during the week and with other delicious meats available, like salmon and scallops, you’ll never be without variety!
