I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Rustic Chicken Tray Bake

If the question is how to make a quick and easy dinner, then tray bakes are the answer. And only one pan to clean!

8 chicken thighs
2 tbsps butter
a few sprigs of rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsps thinly sliced garlic
2 tbsps olive oil
2 onions, quartered
3 medium tomatoes, halved
4 carrots, cut in chunks
1 cup chicken broth
1 lemon, zested and sliced
fresh parsley to garnish

Mix butter, salt and pepper and stuff under the skin of each thigh. Spread on top of the skin too.
Mix garlic, onion, carrots and olive oil together and place around the chicken in a large baking pan. Add tomatoes, lemon and rosemary sprigs and salt and pepper everything. Then add lemon zest on top of each thigh.

Pour the broth into the bottom of the pan and bake at 400°F for 45-55 minutes basting 2 times during cooking.

Serve garnished with fresh parsley.
