Turkish Grilled Chicken and Roasted Vegetables with Lemon1

You know there are times when a one pan meal sounds great, but honestly it’s not that much more effort to get your timing right and have a meal come together hot off the grill and right out of the oven, too.

Take this Turkish Grilled Chicken and Roasted Vegetables with Lemon and Basil for instance. I seasoned the chicken and allowed them to marinate first while the grill and oven heated up. Next, I cut up the vegetables, tossed them in seasoning and a little olive oil and roasted them. Then the chicken was timed to go on the grill and be cooked when the vegetables were almost done roasting. To plate this I tossed the chicken and vegetables together, allowing for the flavors to meld and squeezed some of the roasted lemons and chopped basil on top for a fragrant and tasty meal made in minutes.
