Mustard Chicken and Summer Vegetables
Sweet roasted vegetables and tangy marinated chicken make the perfect combination in this summer one-dish dinner. Fennel, summer squash, carrots and new potatoes are rich in fiber and a variety of healthful phytochemicals. The stone ground mustard sauce locks bold flavor into the chicken. Make for the whole family or store leftovers for those dog days when turning on the oven is the last thing you want to do.
