One Dish Chicken and Vegetables.

It rained all weekend, and has continued raining all week. The sun is supposed to shine tomorrow and for the next five days, though! Yesterday morning i got tired of sitting around the house, so i got dressed, grabbed my umbrella and went for a walk to return my library books. I found two new books to take out, and when i got home I decided to make a recipe for dinner from one of them. This one is called "Taste of Home: The Busy Family Cookbook". Here is a picture of the dish, it looks so delicious!

One Dish Chicken with Vegetables. 

1 envelope onion soup mix.
1/2 tsp garlic powder.
1/4 cup olive oil.
4 boneless skinless chicken halves.
4 medium potatoes, cut into chunks.
4 medium carrots, cut into 1/4 inch slices.

In a small bowl, combine soup mix, oil and garlic powder. Spoon half into a resealable bag, add veggies, seal bag and turn to coat. Spoon remaining mix into another bag, add chicken, turn to coat. Bake in ungreased 11 by 7 inch pan covered for 15 minutes; at 425 F. Uncover and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, or until juices run clear and veggies are tender.

OK, so mine does not look quite as pretty, but i forgot to cover the dish for the first 15 minutes. It tastes alright, just a bit burnt. I took some to work for dinner last night and someone in the lunchroom sniffed the air and said something smelled 'Toxic'. I told him all i could smell was my burnt dinner...i am hoping that is not what he smelled to. I am not going to give up on this one, I think I will try it again soon.

Lately around here I have been reading about a new webpage called Pintrest, it is this really neat site that you can create boards, like folders, and pin things to them. I finally remembered about it look enough to investigate and sign up; so far,I have 5 boards, four being for recipes! If you want to find me over there, I am going by NatashaMarieM. Or, just look for my burnt chicken, because I will be pinning it there soon!

Hope everyone is having a great week, i'm keeping my fingers crossed for the sun tomorrow!!
