Recipe: Grilled Chicken with Roasted Veggies

Ingredients:

For the Grilled Chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

For the Roasted Veggies:

  • 2 bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 zucchinis, sliced
  • 2 sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. In a large bowl, toss the chicken breasts with olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Ensure the chicken is well-coated with the seasoning.
  3. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Once done, set it aside and let it rest.
  4. While the chicken is grilling, toss the sliced bell peppers, zucchini, sweet potatoes, and red onion with olive oil, salt, and black pepper.
  5. Spread the veggies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper in a single layer.
  6. Roast the veggies in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until they are tender and slightly caramelized.
  7. Serve the grilled chicken alongside the roasted veggies. Drizzle with a little extra olive oil if desired, and garnish with fresh herbs like parsley or thyme for an added burst of flavor.
