Roasting veggies 101

Compliment your chicken with delicious roasted veggies. Roasting caramelizes the natural sugars in vegetables, bringing out their sweetness and diminishing any bitterness.

Be sure to dry vegetables thoroughly and cut into similar-size chunks to ensure even cooking. If you're short on time, buy precut squash. For golden brown results, lightly coat in oil (don't drench), spread in a single layer on a large sheet pan (don't overcrowd), and stir only occasionally during roasting.
