Ingredients

  • 1 (2-3 lb.) organic whole chicken (Giblets removed, cleaned, + marinated overnight; See Notes!)
  • 1 bottle Drew's Organics' Rosemary Balsamic Dressing + Marinade (To Purchase; See Notes!)
  • 2 cups homemade cranberry sauce (See Notes!)
  • 1 medium red onion, halved
  • 2 large lemons, quartered
  • 2 large organic carrots, peeled + chopped
  • 2-3 cups organic brussels sprouts, halved
  • 7-8 medium potatoes, rinsed + diced (See Notes!)
  • 1-2 Tbsps grapeseed oil (See Notes!)

Seasonings:

  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp oregano

Other:

  • 1/3 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a large cast iron skillet, lightly greasing it.
  • Add your seasoned chicken to the center of your skillet and spread it out a bit to ensure that everywhere is cooked through.
  • Next, add in the potatoes, carrots, + brussels sprouts, coating them lightly with grapeseed oil and lightly seasoning them.
  • Drizzle rosemary balsamic dressing atop chicken and brush cranberry sauce onto it until fully covered. Stuff inside of chicken with onions and lemons.
  • Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes, until chicken begins to cook through and veggies begin to become tender.
  • In the meantime, in a small saucepan on medium-high heat, heat the rosemary balsamic dressing and remaining cranberry sauce together, stirring until it becomes bubbly, about 1 to 2minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Spoon the heated sauces over the top of the chicken and veggies, add whole cranberries (fresh or frozen), baking everything for another 20-25 minutes.
  • Once done and chicken/veggies are golden brown and have fully cooked through, remove from oven and serve immediately.
  • Garnish with dried parsley, if desired.
  • Bon Appetit!
