Easy & Healthy Herb Chicken and Fresh Roasted Veggies

Preparing healthy recipes for dinner that aren't complicated and don't take forever to do can seem daunting at times. This recipe for herb chicken and fresh, roasted veggies is so incredibly simple you'll be amazed you haven't made it yet. It's low calorie and very healthy. The veggies are the focus of the meal. They are all fresh, upping the yum factor, and the chicken is boneless and skinless without added sauces, marinades, etc., to keep the calories down. If you want, you can add rice as a side for the dish. I find it isn't needed and not having it helps me keep the carb-count down.
