Herb Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

 

Confession: when I signed up for Beach Body, all I knew about were the insane workouts. I knew the people with the great success stories must have gone on a strict diet, but I didn’t realize that no… actually… they didn’t go on a crazy diet. They just followed their own personalized meal plan that they did not even pay extra for. The entire meal plan, thousands of recipes, and more were right here at my fingertips and I didn’t realize it until 2 months into BeachBody.

Now, I RELY on my meal plan to keep what I’m eating and how much I’m eating in CHECK! And it WORKS! Very well. And my favorite thing about it is that I get to eat dessert every single day!

I HAVE to tell you guys about this brand of frozen yogurt real fast before I share this recipe. This frozen yogurt has replaced ice cream in my life. I no longer care for Blue Bell (I know, SEND THE FLYING MONKEYS!!). THAT’S how GOOD it is, y’all!! It’s called KEMPS Yo 2 and it’s…. sent straight from the dairy gods above. OH my God I cannot even.

Ok, back to this healthy recipe right at 430 calories (not bad!). It’s incredible filling, too, you’ll probably have to skip dessert!

Now, I will say this is my personalized serving size here. My calorie intake for the day will probably be different than yours, so make sure you go to beachbodycoach.com and click on the Eat Smart tab to get your personalized meal plan. Or if you’re watching your calories and 430 for dinner sounds perfect, then keep reading fam!!

Here’s a shot of the veggies I used for this recipe. These are all pre-measured out just for me 😀

I tossed the eggplant and onion with extra virgin olive oil and seasonings to taste!

Once your veggies and the chicken is prepped, you cook everything all at once! Easy prep, and easy clean up. I’m all about it!

 

Add in the roasted potato for your good serving of carb and you’re done.

Such an easy, delicious, and healthy dinner. It’s amazing!
