Food To Be Fit: One-Dish Wonder

If you're in a rush for dinner, this is for you. Quick, easy, healthy, and full of flavour!! The first time I made this, my boyfriend thought I was cooking the entire afternoon...that's how good it was. Let's just say I didn't tell him it took me about 10 minutes to prepare, and 50 minutes in the oven. Easy peasy!


  • 8 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (leave the skin on, 1-inch cubes)
  • 2 carrots (halved and quartered lengthwise, then cut into quarters)
  • 1 onion (sliced)
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • ½ tsp each salt & pepperDSC_0202
  • ½ tsp red chili flakes
  • 1 handful fresh parsley leaves (finely chopped)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Spread 1 tbsp olive oil on the bottom of a large glass baking dish and set aside.DSC_0204
  3. Combine garlic, sweet potatoes, carrots & onion in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and toss well, ensuring that the vegetables are lightly coated with oil.
  4. Place chicken breasts on the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle the top of the chicken with salt & pepper, as well as chili flakes and parsley. Surround the chicken with the vegetables and cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Cook covered for 30 minutes, then uncover and cook for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes.
  7. Serve hot.
