Recipe: One Pan Bacon Herb Chicken and Veggies

I’ve been saving recipes from Instagram and have set a goal to actually go back through them regularly and try them.  This is one I found from the Buzz Feed Tasty feed and knew that I would make it the second I saved it.  It screamed “winner”, plus I already had all the ingredients on hand PLUS it’s a one-pan dish!!!!!  Use sugar-free bacon and you’ve got a great Whole30/Paleo dish!  This is most definitely going in the regular rotation, maybe using different veggie medleys each time (and maybe trying with salmon, too!)

Serves 4
Powerful, fresh flavor with easy cleanup! Switch up veggies for your preferred ones and play around with meat/fish options, as well. Use sugar-free bacon to make it Whole30 approved!
