Bake A Meal (BAM) - Chicken and Green Peas

If you want a nutritious meal but do not want to spend too much time in the kitchen, "bake a meal". or BAM, is definitely the way to go.  I usually put everything onto a baking pan, turn on the oven, and leave the kitchen to continue my other chores at home until the food is done baking.  I am happy that the food was still delicious enough, and  my kids and husband served themselves directly onto their plates like a dinner buffet.  This saved time and cleaning up the dishes afterward. Here is one of the BAM I often make:

Rosemary Chicken , potatoes, green peas with onion.


1  Whole Chicken
3 Russet Potatoes, peeled and diced
3 stalks of carrots
1 Can of green peas, drain and discard liquid
1/2  a Yellow Onion
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
Garlic salt
Black pepper


  1. Rinse whole chicken and dry with paper towel.
  2. Sprinkle rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper generously inside and outside of chicken.
  3. Place diced potatoes, carrots, chopped onion onto baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 degree for 35 minutes.
  5. Add the green peas with the potatoes and cook for 10 more minutes.
  6. Check the thickest part of the chicken (thigh area) to make sure the chicken is cooked. 

Put a sheet of foil on top of the baking pan before placing all the food to be baked to save cleaning up by just discarding the foil afterward.
