Whole30 Day 4 Dinner

I love this recipe because it is super quick to assemble. Roughly chop vegetables, drizzle olive oil and seasonings, top with chicken, bake and BAM! DONE!!! Chicken thighs are relatively cheap part of the chicken and has a decent amount of meat to it. Day 4 and I am feeling my body getting cleansed. I started getting a headache but I realized I needed food immediately. Staying well fed throughout the day is sooo important. Pack extra snacks wherever you go so you are not tempted to eat junk.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 lbs Chicken Thighs
  • Olive Oil
  • 2-3 Carrots, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 Sweet Potatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 Onion, roughly chopped
