This is exactly what I was looking for...a healthy, low fat, high nutrition dish that didn't have some sort of sauce or cheese involved. I followed your instructions but added to the ingredients....lots more veggies! (orange cauliflower, eggplant, white potato, purple carrots, extra garlic amongst the veggies,) Next time, I'll use a bigger roaster and add even more veggies...maybe put a layer of kale/spinach under the chicken and add mushrooms, bell peppers, beets, or squash. This dish is so versatile that you can throw in pretty much what you have lying around in the veggie bin & it will come out delicious! Great recipe, I"mPat!.

Very good but think it should cook a bit longer, however I may have been off on the conversion to F - I used 420 degrees F for the oven temp but kept everything else the same (using only one sweet potato).Easy and good!

Love this easy-to-make chicken dish! I knew this healthy one-dish meal would be good and it did not disappoint - it's fantastic! I used 2 leg-and-thigh pieces instead of 4 drumsticks. I had some baby carrots to use so I just added them whole (instead of cutting up a carrot) and that worked out perfectly. 420F for the given cooking time gave us moist and tender chicken, and the dash of red wine vinegar and lemon juice at the end was a perfect touch. Thanks for sharing a keeper!
