Recipe: Rosemary Lemon One-Pot Chicken

What's better than throwing together a one-pot healthy meal for the family? It makes cleanup a breeze, and you'll have peace of mind knowing your family is getting a nutritious meal. The lemon slices and fresh rosemary make a delicious fresh and light broth for the veggies to soak up. Parsnips add a less common vegetable to your family’s routine, but they're sure to become a favorite! This is the perfect way to use the rosemary if you have an herb garden. Feel free to add more if you'd like a more robust flavor.
