The seasoning on this dish is simple and light, yet flavorful. It is just enough to add some interest without masking the natural flavors, making it perfect for introducing kids to new vegetables.
Pro Tip: in our house, we make the kids take 2 “No Thank You” bites of any new dish. They don't necessarily have to eat it all if they don't like it – but they do need to give it two good bites to try it out.

Prep tip: Use a large, full-size baking sheet for this recipe – or divide between two smaller sheets, if necessary. The goal is to have enough room to spread the veggies around the chicken breasts into a single, uniform layer without overcrowding.
Tip: If possible, use non-stick cooking spray for this recipe instead of parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Otherwise, the marinade will seep under the mat or paper and will be very difficult to clean off afterward.
