We love this dish because it is hustle-free and honestly just needs a small aluminum pan of 1/8 inches of thickness. It is ideal for personal serving, and you are free of the piles of dishes by the end of the day.
Moreover, another kitchen utensil you need is a small to medium-sized bowl, spoon, or oven, like a conventional countertop or even toaster. The use of a small aluminum pan is to fit the small range too. Thus, it opens so many possibilities for solo baking.

The dish itself is so versatile that you can eat it as it is, but there is always room for more. Well, here are few serving ideas that can make the dish so special. Of course, you deserve something unique and delicious.
- Pour leftover juices from the pan over the chicken and vegetables. It has all of the goodness of the chicken and flavors from herbs and garlic too.
- A drizzle of Ranch will have a delicious and fresh taste to the dish. It also makes an excellent dip-like sauce.
- Yogurt and dill dip is a perfect combination of tanginess and freshness. And it really goes well with heart chicken and the spiced roasted veggies.
