This Spatchcock chicken paired with roasted carrots is a quick and easy, semi-homemade dinner idea that only takes about 10 minutes of hands-on time to make. Our family loves this chicken and carrots meal and it fills up their bellies with healthy and satisfying food.
I wanted to pop in with a quick dinner idea for you today! One of our favorites- chicken with a side of oven roasted carrots! It is perfectly paired with a number of additional sides especially homemade French bread or sautéed green beans.
It seems like my family needs more warm and filling meals in the wintertime. Our cold Idaho winters seem to make them hungrier for satisfying food that warms their bones.
I am always testing out new dinner combinations to find fresh ones to add to our regular rotation, and this chicken and carrots combination is definitely a winner. It is semi-homemade and only takes about 10 minutes of hands-on time (if that).
Baking Spatchcock Chicken
When I want an easy-to-make meal, I grab this yummy marinated Signature SELECT™ spatchcock chicken exclusively at my local Albertsons store and whip up a batch of oven roasted carrots. The citrus herb flavor is so good and it takes absolutely no prep, which I love. All you have to do is remove the packaging and bake it according to package instructions. My family eats every bit of this chicken when I make it!
Moist Chicken and Carrots Tips:
- I used the drippings to baste about halfway through baking. I also baste one more time before serving. It is very moist and delicious.
- Be sure to measure doneness by internal temperature via meat thermometer instead of set time
- Always allow chicken to rest for 10-15 minutes before cutting and serving. This helps the moisture to stay in the meat, and just so happens to be the amount of time needed to cook the carrots. (This makes chicken and carrots the perfect combo)
- Serve with Open Nature® Compostable Tabletop items for easy cleanup

Helpful tip: Albertsons also offers Grocery Delivery and DriveUp & Go™ which is always a life saver when I have the littles in tow!
Roasted Carrots and other Sides
I serve this chicken with my oven roasted carrots recipe, and my entire family eats every bit. Roasting the carrots brings out their natural flavor and sweetness. My recipe is so simple that you can really have your carrots ready to throw in the oven in about 5 minutes.
Other sides that would pair well with chicken and carrots:
- homemade French bread
- baked potatoes
- sautéed green beans
- homemade Bread
- the BEST asparagus
- roasted bacon asparagus
You will love this delicious combination! I love a meal that is super easy to throw together but still looks and tastes like I spent hours in the kitchen. What are your favorite easy weeknight dinner combinations?
