Summer chicken tray bake recipe
A quick, easy, delicious chicken tray bake
When it comes to quick and easy dinners, this is a winner. First you start with locally sourced potatoes and three or four fresh vegetables (whatever is in season). I like to mix up the colors; let's be honest, we eat with our eyes. If it looks good, then you have set the bar for how good it will taste.
Let's talk about chicken. There are two types in the store – "small bird" (less than 4lb) and another type that's much, much larger. I personally look for "small bird" chicken; this may be a little harder to find in the big box stores, so you may need to ask for it by name. Trust me, your local butcher will surely have a good selection for you. Small chickens are more tender, juicy and flavorful, and they cook faster. Ask for it – you you will thank me later.
