The evening scramble is tough.  I find myself rushing around trying to figure out which dishes I can make that my whole family will enjoy.  This is the first post in a series of menus that you can use and interchange as part of your dinner planning routine.

In this menu plan I kept things simple: chicken, brussels sprouts, carrots.  Start by preparing the chicken.  Once the chicken is roasting in the oven, begin the carrots and then the brussels sprouts.  You should have dinner on the table and mouths fed within an hour (especially if you increase the cooking temperature).  You can also try to prepare the chicken the night before so you can just pop it into the oven when you get home after a long day.

I hope you enjoy my dinner menu series!  Let me know how they are working out for you or if you have any suggestions for me that I can add to my line-up!

Roasted Chicken /w Herbs & Lots of Garlic


Description

The garlic mellows in flavour as it cooks with the chicken, and becomes buttery, rich and sweet. Use it to spread on your warm baguette – it’s that good!

Maple Roasted Carrots


  • Author: Julie
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 4-6 1x

Description

These glazed and roasted carrots are tender and sweet.  Try to get carrots with the tops attached for a nicer presentation.  Bourbon adds another flavour that makes these carrots truly delicious.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 lb. baby carrots, preferably with green tops, peeled & trimmed, leaving 1/2 inch of tops attached
  • 1/3 cup pure Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 3 Tbs. good quality bourbon
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne
  • Kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Position the rack in the upper third of the oven.
  2. spread the carrots in a single layer on a large heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet. In a measuring cup, combine the maple syrup, oil, and bourbon.
  3. Drizzle the syrup mixture over the carrots and sprinkle with the cayenne and 2 tsp. salt. Using your hands, toss the carrots to coat evenly. Cover the tops of the carrot with foil paper to prevent browning.
  4. Roast the carrots, undisturbed for 15 minutes. Toss and continue to roast until tender when pierced with a fork (about 20 minutes). (You can roast the carrots up to 1 hour ahead; keep them at room temperature on the roasting pan. Reheat in the oven, or serve them at room temperature). Transfer to a platter and drizzle with maple syrup and olive oil mixture. Serve warm.
