Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the chicken breasts on a sheet pan. Place the veggies on the same pan. Rub the tops with olive oil and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Roast for 35 minutes, until cooked through. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Shred the chicken. Set the veggies aside.
