My boyfriend and I have been consistent with our diets considering we both love to eat. I decided to make my boyfriend a nice meal, but I needed to keep it healthy. So I made chicken and vegetables.
Cream of Chicken
You will need a standard baking pan and aluminum foil. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Wash chicken. Season with black pepper and garlic salt on both sides. After wrapping aluminum foil around the bottom and sides of the baking pan, place seasoned chicken in pan.
Depending on how many people are eating, cut ALL vegetables into small to medium pieces and place all on and around seasoned chicken (see photo above). After you have placed the cut vegetables, pour cream of chicken onto chicken and vegetables.
Next, cut your lemon in half. Take one half and squeeze lemon juice on chicken and vegetables. Before placing baking pan into over, pour 2 cups of water underneath the aluminum foil.
*It’s ok if you get water inside the baking pan.
Cook chicken and vegetables for 1 hour and 45 minutes.
