Home-Style Chicken Dinner

I was in the check out line at the store and saw this recipe book called Casserole Recipe cards by Betty Crocker. I was looking in the book and found that there seemed quite a few recipes I wouldn't mind trying. Tonite i did that. I am always making the Same ol' Same ol' chicken recipes. So tonite i did the home style chicken dinner. i must say it was delicious. though the chicken was a tad over cooked as i had put it in longer cuz the potatoes weren't done. I also didn't have the tomatoes (i wouldn't have cared for them anyway) or the sweet potatoes or the green bell pepper. And I added some onion and carrots to the mix instead. Oh and I didn't have the fryer chicken, i used boneless breast and thighs. so that could be also why they didn't finish at the same time. so next time I will put the potatoes in for 10min before the putting the chicken on. Also i think next time i will do a combo of melted butter and olive oil. but i must say it was DELICIOUS

so without further ado. here is the recipe (oh and can i say it was SUPER SIMPLE)

2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
3-3.5 lbs cut up broiler fryer chicken (skin removed opt.)
6 small unpeeled red potatoes, cut into 4ths
2 med dark orange sweet potatoes cut into 1 inch pieces
1 med, green bell pepper
3 Roma tomatoes cut into forths

Heat oven to 400* spray 13x9 baking dish with cooking spray. in large bowel mix basil seasoned salt, garlic, pepper and oil. Brush about half of the mixture on chicken. Add remaining ingredients to bowl and toss to coat
Place vegetables in baking dish and place chicken on top. brush with any remaining oil mixture
Bake 45-50 min or until vegetables are tender and juice of chicken is no longer pink when cut. Serve with pan juices.
