I asked you guys on Instagram a few weeks ago to share with me the kind of recipes you wanted to see more of; these responses largely determined the recipes I included in my Fall Real Food Family Meal Plan; and the recipes I’ll be sharing on the blog in the coming month. The response? A resounding “one pan and one pot meals!”.  I feel you, mama– isn’t it so much easier just to throw it all on one pan?

This recipe combines two easy recipes in one– roasted rosemary garlic chicken thighs and cinnamon honey roasted root vegetables; for a complete one-pan meal with a ton of flavor that is easy to prep ahead (root veggies hold up well pre-chopped in the fridge) perfect for fall and winter nights.
