Roasted Garlic Chicken, Carrots & Parsnips

Roasted Garlic Chicken, Carrots & Parsnips

I am obsessed with cast iron pan dinners… they are the tastier version of sheet pan dinners and frankly the clean up is easier.  Just scrape off and swish with water and put the pan back in the hot oven or towel dry… with a dark towel of course!

Cast iron truly makes everything better!  And when you have my list of food allergies it is a fantastic go to because I can put an array of meat and veggies in a pan to accommodate everyone’s needs.  This is a VERY SIMPLE meal of pastured, soy-free chicken bone in breasts and thighs with cleaned and sliced carrots and parsnips.  I sprinkle everything with parsley, pink salt, a dash of black pepper and oregano… drizzle it with ghee, refined coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil (very high quality actually has a higher smoke point!) and pop it in the oven at 425°F for 35-40 minutes.
