Roast Chicken with Honey-Drizzled Vegetables

Chicken is such a wonderfully versatile meat that can be prepared in so many different ways. For this post, I´ve chosen “Roast chicken with honey-drizzled vegetables”, a simple, one-pot recipe where the chicken juices mingle with the vegetables and, together  with the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey, create a delicious-tasting, hearty meal.
