Easy Weeknight Dinner: Roasted Ginger Turmeric Chicken with Vegetables
Roasted sheet pan meals are my go-to for busy weeknight dinners. They are easy to assemble and roast quickly while you get on with everything else during the busy pre-dinner hour.
One Pan Roasted Ginger Turmeric Chicken with Vegetables
I typically serve this roasted ginger turmeric chicken on a bed of quinoa and baby spinach leaves. The recipe serves our small family of 4 for dinner. I have been known to double the recipe (two roasting pans worth) for nights when the boys are particularly hungry or when we want leftovers for lunch later in the week.

Prep time does not include marinading chicken
- Did you know that 80% of the antibiotics sold in the United States are for livestock? That is why I choose to purchase chicken raised without antibiotics.
- Red and green bell peppers consistently test positive for pesticide residues, including organophosphate pesticides. That is why I choose to buy organic or pesticide free bell peppers. Read more about pesticides and produce.
