One pan/one pot meals are one of my favorite things because they are just so darn easy. You throw everything onto a baking sheet and stick it in the oven. Boom, dinner.
This spatchcock chicken dinner is no exception. It is easy, healthy, and suuuuuper delicious. And PLEASE don’t let the word ‘spatchcock’ intimidate you. It is a lot easier than you think, and it basically just means you butterfly open a whole chicken. I know that might sound complicated, but it truly is simple (here is a video). The reason I wanted to spatchcock the chicken is because it cooks a lot faster in the oven when you butterfly it open than when you leave it intact. It is able to cook all the way through while not burning all of the veggies on the pan at the same time.
This entire meal only requires three main ingredients, plus a few pantry staples that I bet you already have on hand. This is the kind of dinner that looks really impressive, but takes minimal effort and ingredients.
