Chicken tray bake with vegetables and cheese

According to Canada's Food Guide, meals are healthiest when half of the plate is fruit and vegetables, a quarter is meat or equivalent, and the remaining quarter, grain product.

A typical Asha meal is often half pasta, a quarter meat and vegetable, and the remaining quarter, cheese. Not exactly Canada's Food Guide-approved.

However, I am confident the authors would have been proud of me for cooking this recent meal: three quarters potatoes, tomatoes, onions and broccoli, and the remaining quarter a yummy roasted chicken thigh. Oh, and did I mention that broccoli was parmesan-encrusted? (I can always find ways to have my cheese and eat it too ;)

Recipes to come later this week.

ROFL I am a cheesaholic, as well. Add to that a vegetarian, so whatever portion of your plate is meat, mine is extra cheese. For protein, you know. A girl needs her protein. LOL

Thanks Jo, you vegetarians have the best excuse for extra cheese!

I much prefer your ratios to those of the Canada Food Guide.

Looks delish!

Thanks Jessica, I'm glad I'm not the only one who could never be their poster child!
