  5. Place the chicken and vegetables on the baking sheet. Roast for 35 to 45 minutes or until potatoes are soft and chicken is no longer pink. A food thermometer will read 165 degrees F when the chicken is done. Toss a couple times while roasting.

Notes

  • Try with tofu, pork or beef instead of chicken.
  • Try Food Hero Creole or Soulful or Southern Seasonings
  • Roasting time will vary depending on size of pieces; smaller pieces will cook through sooner.

Comments

For me, the 2 teblespoons oil is very less. I will like to use at least 4 tablespoons oil to make it more tasty. However, it all depends on the prefrences. 

It tasted really good! I actually didn't add the Cajun seasoning because I don't like super spicy, so I substited with different seasonings. Also after I pulled it out of the oven it was kind of burnt and stuck to the bottom of the pan so next time I'll add a little bit of oil to the pan. Other than that it was great!

Adding more oil could increase the calories from fat.  Roasting time can depend on the size of the pieces; smaller pieces would be done sooner.  Watch closely starting at 30 minutes and poke the veggies with a fork to see if they are done.  Chicken bites should not show any pink color inside.

I used this recipe for a tasting, and it was great!  Smelled fantastic while baking, and got very positive feedback from adults. The kids weren't so easy -- couldn't get many to even try it.  Oh well -- can't win'em all!
