I really was surprised at how well they turned out, especially since there really wasn't any liquid in the roasting pan - just a bit of oil & pan drippings.
OH!!!! Somewhere in here my brain kicked into the thought "roasting in a single layer with other veggies - I dropped the word chicken hence putting the word roasting with the veggies only!
Seriously - am I the only one that thought she was actually roasting the vegetables???? I wouldn't have worried at all about the liquid from the frozen veggies diluting the chicken drippings or hurting the other veggies had I been thinking right!
OK, I bet they were good with all the drippings from the chicken. A bunch of root veggies cooking with a chicken is perfect for days like we have had recently!
