EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZY
I think we can all agree that the worst part of the cooking process is the cleanup. In our household, we have a symbiotic setup in which I cook and Robby does the dishes and tidies the kitchen. For those who don’t have an extra pair of helping hands or if you’re simply looking for a meal that cuts down on the number kitchen utensils and tools that tend to pile up while cooking, enter the sheet pan dinner. Perfect for busy weeknights, the sheet pan dinner is the ultimate one-and-done.
I paired this roasted chicken with artichokes for a bit of an unexpected meal. When it comes to artichokes, most people picture them whole and eaten with aioli or as a pizza topping. I love this dish because it marries together different textures and fresh, zesty, and cheesy flavors in one hearty meal. If you’ve only used dried herbs in your cooking, you’re in for a real treat. Aromatics are the real key here: the lemon adds a touch of brightness and the thyme brings a subtle depth to the dish.
TWO FOR ONE DEAL
