This delicious, gluten-free, paleo, simple to prep and cook One-Pan Mediterranean Roast Chicken with potatoes, onions, red pepper and black olives is all made and cooked in one pan, making clean-up a breeze!
If you are coming to my blog often you know that we are spending some time in Brazil visiting my family (sorry, if I am repetitive, but I just want to explain for those who are here for the first time) and right now we’re in São Paulo because my husband, although Canadian and works in Toronto, has some business in this biggest city in South America. So, we’re in a house, which is about 5 minutes from his work and for this reason he comes to have lunch with me and our little baby Thomas everyday. I know, right? It’s so nice to come home for lunch. I think it’s a privilege actually, since nowadays we’re so busy at work that most of the time we have only 15 minutes of lunch break.
But in Brazil it’s a law to have 1 hour break for lunch, if you work 8 hours per day. YES! You heard well ONE HOUR for lunch!! I guess it’s because the most important meal of the day for Brazilian is the lunch. People here really enjoy eating a complete meal during lunch time. Normally they eat rice, beans, meat and some type of salad. I also love this traditional meal, but unfortunately my husband doesn’t like much rice and beans. Well… He eats it here and there but beans and rice is not something that he really likes to eat everyday like Brazilians. He always says to me: “I don’t know why you Brazilians don’t get sick of eating rice and beans everyday…” And I always laugh and say: “if you were a Brazilian you would understand why!” 😉
So, since he prefers to eat some type of protein and veggies during lunch I love to make this One Pan Mediterranean Roast Chicken for him. It’s very easy and quick to make, it’s flavourful and you can use any kind of veggies you have in your kitchen. Also on top of that this recipe makes clean-up a breeze. You will need only one pan (as the title says) to make this complete meal and if you use aluminium foil or parchment paper it will be even easier to clean the baking sheet after eating. Awesome!!!
