  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  4. In another small bowl, use whisk to mix together oil, vinegar, and remaining ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Drizzle over the chicken and veggies.
  5. Roast in oven for 50 minutes. Chicken should be browned and cooked through. Vegetables should be tender.
