How to Cook an Easy Chicken Dinner


I’ve enjoyed my travels and cooking in different kitchens. This week I cooked in the Bohemian Sprouts kitchen in Arizona. The recipes are down below. For further instructions watch the video. You will want to take a peek at this brand new beautiful gluten free kitchen!


Roasted Chicken

After rinsing the chicken, sprinkle salt, black pepper, and onion powder in the cavity and on the outside of the chicken. Place 3 or 4 tabs of butter on the inside of the cavity and several tabs on top of the chicken. Place 1 cut up stalk of celery into the cavity to add extra flavor to the chicken. Place in preheated oven at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken). The chicken should be at 165 degrees Fahrenheit when it is done. Cover with tented tin foil for 20 minutes before serving.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Thoroughly clean the outside of the potatoes and pierce with a knife 3 or 4 times. Drizzle olive oil on the potatoes and then wrap in tin foil. Place in a preheated oven of 425 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour.


Put chopped broccoli in a pan with about 1/2 cup of water on top of the stove. Place 1 to 2 tabs of butter on top of broccoli and then sprinkle with seasoning salt to taste. I use DIY Herbamare seasoning. The broccoli will be done in approximately 10 minutes.


Place 1 cup of gluten free peanut butter in a bowl. Add a cup of sugar, 1 large (beaten) egg, and 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Mix and make into tablespoon size balls and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Use the tine of a fork to press the dough down. Now lightly sprinkle with kosher salt.(This will bring out the natural sweet flavor of the cookie). Place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 10 minutes. Place cookies on a cooling rack.

Enjoy your dinner!
