Bloody Mary’s are an iconic drink. A savory cocktail of tomato juice, sauces, rimmed with seasonings and garnished with a stalk of celery.
They’re basically alcoholic salad, right?
But what if you took all the elements of a Bloody Mary, and made it into a sheet pan dinner of chicken and veggies that you can serve up alone (for low-carb) or over some pasta in a vodka sauce, just to really bring things home?
Well, we made it…and it worked!
The result was a true Bloody Mary-inspired meal, that was well paired with the veggies we cooked them in. Thankfully, all on one dish, which as we know – is just a little piece of magic that helps you through the evenings.
Cooking for a family? Don’t worry – this is alcohol free, and great for kids, too!
