Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line two 15x10x1-inch baking pans with foil; set aside. Combine parsley, oregano, basil, rosemary, salt and ground pepper in a small bowl. Place chicken on one of the prepared pans. Sprinkle with half of the herb mixture. Combine mushrooms, onion, bell pepper and garlic in a large bowl. Drizzle with oil; toss to coat. Place mushroom mixture on the other prepared baking pan.

  • Roast chicken and vegetables 30 minutes, stirring vegetable mixture once. If chicken is tender and no longer pink (180 degrees F), remove from oven and cover to keep warm; if not, continue roasting until done. Add asparagus, beans, tomatoes, olives, balsamic vinegar and the remaining herb mixture to the vegetables in pan; stir to combine. Continue to roast about 15 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender.

  • To serve, cut chicken into bite-size pieces; combine with roasted vegetables.
