{Quick & Easy Dinner} Roasted Chicken with Potatoes, Onions & Peppers + Grocery Giveaway!

Some days you just need a quick and easy dinner. That doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste and quality! This Roasted Chicken with potatoes, onions and peppers is ready in minutes! *** Also, scroll to the bottom for a fabulous grocery giveaway!****

I like to cook wholesome meals for my family and have always tried really hard to make this fit in the schedule. Now that my kids are getting older though I am finding that we have days where cooking a meal and all sitting down as a family just isn’t an option. We have school, baseball, small group, my ladies group, my husband working late or out of town, and somehow these activities seem to like to all fall on the same evenings!

I hate giving my kids a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dinner since they probably had something similar in their lunch box that day and there is no way this picky mama is eating PB&J, I don’t care how busy we are! I shared a little about how much I liked the new Jimmy Dean® and Jimmy Dean Delights® frozen lunch or dinner entrées for a quick and easy lunch earlier this month here and I thought that this might just solve my dinner dilemma on these hectic days too!

These entrees are full of flavor and have the same great hearty quality we have always loved from Jimmy Dean, but now give a huge selection of entrees perfect for lunch and dinner. Armed with my coupon {of course!} I headed out to Smiths {our local Kroger brand store} to stock up on some great dinner options for my hubby, the kids, and especially me!

I always prefer Chicken and pasta, but my husband loves beef and pork. It is great that they offer so many choices so that I can get the hubs what he likes best but still have my favorite too. Plus I can get the Jimmy Dean Delights entrees which all have 300 calories or less for me and a great hearty choice from their regular entree options that is packed with protein for him. See all the Jimmy Dean Lunch & Dinner options here.

Would you and your family pick the same ones or all like different ones?! Of course everything sounded so good I ended up with quite a few options in my cart!

I let my big pregnant belly do the talking though and filled my basket with several entrees including a Southwest Style Grilled Chicken bowl, Three Cheese Pasta (grown up Mac & Cheese, my fav!), and Pulled Chicken sandwiches all from the Jimmy Dean Delights {in other words, light and healthy!} selection. Tonight though, I knew that Golden Roasted Chicken with potatoes, peppers and onions would be MY dinner!

In about 4 minutes I had this hearty and filling dinner heated and ready to serve. While it was in the microwave I threw together a quick salad with mixed greens, tomatoes, and balsamic dressing and I was ready to eat in minutes. This was the perfect dinner for our night because I got the kids from school at 4 and had to be at a baseball game in full gear ready to go by 5:30. There was no way the kids , or this pregnant mama, could wait until after the game to eat because then it is pretty much a mad rush to bed. So I got to still have a hot, filling, well balanced meal even though we only had a few minutes to sit and eat in between all the craziness of the evening.

    I am most interested in trying the hickory smoked turkey breast sandwich. All of the “pulled” sandwiches also look delicious.
