A mouthwatering make-ahead meal.
Make a double batch and freeze what you don't eat for a quick meal later.
Try this delicious pairing

Seasoned with rosemary, sage, nutmeg and a pinch of cinnamon, this oven-baked dish makes an irresistible family meal.
This easy, mouthwatering dish—chicken combined with autumn's harvest of potatoes, parsnips and carrots—has all the wonderful flavors of the season. And, because it freezes and reheats well, you can make a double batch on a Sunday and store the rest for a quick meal on a busy week night.

1 medium onion, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
1 medium potato, scrubbed and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
2 parsnips, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper, divided
1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped (or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried), divided
1 Tablespoon fresh sage leaves, finely chopped, (or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried), divided
1/2 cup low-sodium, low-fat chicken broth
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
3 to 4 pounds chicken pieces on the bone, rinsed and patted dry, room temperature (for a lower-fat version, remove the skin)

step 1 Place baking rack in the upper third of oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.
step 2 In a large bowl or 1 gallon Ziploc® Brand Storage Bag, combine the onion, potato, sweet potato, parsnips and carrots, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, 1 1/2 teaspoons rosemary and 1 1/2 teaspoons sage (if using dried herbs, use 3/4 teaspoon each rosemary and sage). Mix well and place on a foil-lined rimmed sheet pan or shallow roasting pan. Pour the chicken broth over the vegetables.
step 3 In a small bowl, mix together remaining 1 Tablespoon olive oil, 1 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, 1 1/2 teaspoon sage and paprika (if using dried herbs, use 3/4 teaspoon each rosemary and sage). Season chicken parts with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and brush with oil and seasoning mixture from small bowl. Place chicken in pan on top of vegetables.
step 4 Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, baste chicken and vegetables with the pan juices and bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked. On a meat thermometer, chicken thighs should be 165 degrees F and breasts should read 170 degrees F. Let chicken and vegetables sit for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

chef’s notes
To bring chicken to room temperature, rinse it, pat dry and then place on a large plate or platter for 30 minutes.

If preparing chicken with the skin on, cook it for an additional 5 minutes (at the end of step 4) under the broiler to make the skin crispy.

You can use two sweet potatoes or two white potatoes instead of one of each if you prefer.
