chicken and vegetables recipe

I made this for dinner last week and it was so delicious, inexpensive and healthy!  

*In a large skillet, brown 1 tbsp of minced garlic and 1/4 cup olive oil.  (about 2 minutes on medium heat)

 *Place the whole chicken in the skillet with the garlic oil (3.5 lbs whole chicken) and brown all the sides of the chicken.  The picture, above, shows the chicken before being placed in the oven and after browning in the skillet.

*In a large casserole dish, fill with chopped carrots, broccoli and 1 lemon sliced.  (I used frozen broccoli and it was perfectly cooked at the end.  The carrots weren't as soft as I like them, so I steamed them a little longer after taking the chicken out of the oven.  Next time I may steam them a little before putting them in the dish or cut smaller slices.)  Drizzle vegetables with olive oil.

*Add chicken to the middle and pat with 1 tbsp sea salt and herbs. (rosemary, italian seasoning, whatever you like!) Place in oven at 325F for one hour or until reaches 160F.

Add some brown rice and Enjoy!
