Low-Carb Chicken Dinner

I'm always looking for low-carb dinners that look appetizing and taste good. I found this one in the Food and Family magazine.

The original recipe was made on the grill, but I pan-roasted it instead and changed the dressing from sundried tomato vinaigrette to a roasted pepper dressing. Other than those two changes, it is the same recipe.

But that was in the summer and now it's fall, so you can change the vegetables to fall vegetables, like butternut squash, beets, carrots, cauliflower, or whatever vegetables you like. The only exception would be greens—these would need to be cooked separately because they are more delicate.

So pick and choose your veggies according to what your family or you like, and your dinner is sure to be a hit.

Hi Jackie. I have friends that live in Ohio and they love it. I hope and pray you fully recover from your spine surgery. I can imagine the pain you have. I had hip surgery last year and it ruined my whole summer last year but this year I'm really good and glad I did it. I wish you a blessed New Year also.

It is an easy to make recipe and low calorie is added bonus. Thanks.

Yes, we are retired. I had spine surgery and it really hurt for weeks worse than anything ever but just have days now and then now. They said it could take 6 months to a year to recover and it has been nearly 6 months.

I am in Ohio now moved from NC to be near our son. I am looking forward to some snow since I don't have to get out in it. I love flurries. lol So beautiful. Especially at Christmas!

May still be scarce for awhile but have every intention of getting back here soon as I can.

Happy New Year to you too!

Hi Jackie. How nice to open my mail and see your name and face. I'm certainly sorry to hear you had to face surgery. I hope and pray everything turned out ok for you. You moved to a cold part of the country? Lots of luck with the cold weather and snow. If you are retired, you will enjoy not having to go out in it. Thanks for getting back to me. Have a blessed Christmas and a blessed New Year.

Hello Rachel, so sorry for being so long getting back to you but life has had me in a whirlwind of surgery, recovering and then moving! Still not settled in yet but getting close!

Will sure be glad when things quieten down and I get to come back here to read (if not write) and I can follow my good friends (you being top of the list) and try some of these delicious recipes.

Mentioned you to my husband just yesterday, feeling bad not getting back. I owe Dora a visit too, to explain.

It will be wonderful to get back and now I have moved to a cold part of the country I think I will find many hours of leisure!

I am fairly certain I will be back before then, but just in case, Merry Christmas!

I am seeing more recipes like this on the Food Network channels where everything is done on a sheet pan in the oven. It makes for easy cleanup and a tasty blending of flavors. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us.
