Description

After assembling this, I placed it in the fridge overnight and simply cooked when we were ready for dinner. This is a great recipe to take to a home with a new baby or someone who is grieving after the death of a family member. It could be delivered in a foil throw away container with instructions on how to bake. Or if you go on vacation leave one in your freezer to make quickly when you arrive home.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cups Butter
  • 6 whole Red Potatoes
  • 4 whole Carrots
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  • 20 cloves Garlic, Peeled And Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Basil
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 11 whole Pieces Of Assorted Bone-in Chicken Thighs And Drumsticks
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Molasses

Preparation

Set oven to 400 F and while it is heating allow butter to melt in a 9×13″ pan that you’ve placed in the oven.

Clean and cut potatoes and carrots into large chunks. Remove pan from oven when the butter is melted and add potatoes, carrots, oregano, garlic, basil, onion powder and salt. Toss to mix seasoning and thoroughly cover vegetables. Place chicken pieces on top of veggies and then sprinkle with Cajun seasoning. If you don’t have this seasoning you can use salt and pepper.

Place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Then remove the dish from the oven. Combine honey and molasses and brush on the chicken. Return dish to the oven and bake for 15 minutes. At this point if the chicken is finished cooking remove it from the pan and store covered to keep warm. The vegetables may need to be cooked by themselves until soft. In my case that was another 15 minutes. Serve.

This sweet and herby dish earned thumbs up from my DH and all three of my sons… or at least, I think it did. They were too busy eating to actually give me a thumbs up. The true test? I only got four bites before my toddler stole mine off my plate and ate it.

I just made this today for Sunday dinner – it was DELICIOUS!! Lots of flavor. I only made 2 changes – I cut up some onion and mixed it with the other vegetables instead of the onion powder, and I doubled the honey because I didn’t have molasses. Definitely will make again – thanks for a great recipe!
