Roasted Chickpea Chicken Tray Bake

Roasted Chickpea Chicken Tray Bake

On top of finishing up a few big projects for this year and getting details in place for one that starts in early 2016, I have to get my act together for some holiday entertaining we’re doing over the next week. But why am I telling you this? Do you even have time to read this post? No, you don’t. But you need dinner, right? Here’s a lightening fast one for you. By the time your oven gets up to the right temperature all of your prep will be done. It’s a Moroccan-flavoured, tray bake dinner. It’s the teensiest bit spicy but the cool yogurt dressing balances everything out – even for kids, I promise.  Okay, go!

    I tried this recipe and really liked it, approx. 30 min prep time. I would like to get a calorie, fat, sodium type breakdown for this and other recipes that you post. It would be really helpful to have this at the end of each one. Being health conscious, I normally decide if I will take the time to prepare something new based on this information.
    Many thanks for considering doing this in the future.
