What are you having for supper? This is a great recipe for busy moms!
Everything in one pan! There would be more carrots in my pan, BUT
my 4 year old ate 3/4 of the bag! :) The great thing about this recipe is that
you can make it ahead of time and toss it in the oven about 45 minutes
before supper time!
- 3/4 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
- 3/4 pound red potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces

Combine butter, remaining 2 teaspoons thyme, remaining 1 teaspoon rosemary, ¼ teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in second bowl; set aside.
- 2. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Place vegetables in single layer on rimmed baking sheet, arranging Brussels sprouts in center.
