I added some red chilli flakes to the chicken seasoning and balsamic to the veg but still was missing something. It needed more flavor. It was an easy dish tho and maybe with a sauce could be good. I served it with gnocci with butter permeaan and a tiny bit of truffle cheese melted in

Sorry it turned out too bland for your taste, hope your additions brought the dish to the next level :) We often get tired of spice, so easy meals with basic seasonings like garlic, lemon and Italian blend become a hit. :) - Alena

Baking veggies is the best. One pot meals are awesome for busy weeknights. This is a family friendly meal, and leftovers would be good for lunch too.
