We all know how difficult it is to run a successful business, manage childcare, your personal life and put a hot meal on the table every night. To alleviate some of the meal time stress we are launching a Meals for People on the Go series which will feature healthy and easy to make meals for you and your family.
The first meal in this series is Baked Chicken with Potatoes and Carrots. This meal takes a couple of hours to cook, which you can use to help the kids with homework, but there is very minimal prep time and cleanup is a breeze. You can also substitute the potatoes and carrots for vegetables of your choice.
