Mustard Roasted Chicken with Vegetables

I was looking to cook something for dinner the other night that was both delicious and healthy (and as always, easy to make). I remember coming across this recipe (from Real Simple) via one of my favorite blogs stephmodo. I had to tweek it to adjust for the items I had on hand, but it still turned out fabulous.
A few things to consider:

*You don't have to use a whole chicken, I used chicken breasts.
*You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand, I used potatoes, carrots, and onions.
*The sauce can be adjusted, I added a couple tablespoons of honey. It's probably better with a really good deli mustard, but I didn't have any, and my plain, cheap mustard still did the trick!
The recipe is worthy of guests, just add a nice artisan bread and a yummy green salad and you have a quick, easy dinner!
