Roast Dijon Chicken and Vegetables

               dijon-chicken

Perfect for cooler weather, this dish uses Dijon mustard to add a kick to the roasted chicken. Sweet potatoes, carrots, and other seasonal veggies are low in fat and offer fall flavors.

I wonder if you could just bake that and it turn out well. I'm not a boiler pan/roasting kind of person.
