We're sure your childhood was like ours, in that a creamy sauce on a chicken was a common weeknight dinner, either microwaved out of a box or with a can of soup poured over a tough chicken breast. This dinner takes that basic concept to an elite level. Creamy, cheesy green onion sauce enrobes a juicy chicken breast, with BBQ carrots and turnips on the side adding a zesty sweetness for balance. Put away the can opener, close the microwave… childhood's over, after all and adult dinners are much, much better.

    Roast the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook undisturbed until golden brown, 4-6 minutes. Transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet, seared side up. Roast in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
