Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce for bulk cooking. Halve the zucchini lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; large dice the leaves. Halve and peel the onion; cut into 1/2-inch wedges, keeping the layers intact. Combine in a bowl. Separate the collard green leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then halve lengthwise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop. 

Roast the vegetables:
2 Roast the vegetables:

Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the prepared zucchini, cabbage, and onion on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Roast the chicken & carrots:
3 Roast the chicken & carrots:

Meanwhile, line a separate sheet pan with foil. Place the carrot pieces on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Place on the other side of the sheet pan. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until the carrots are tender when pierced with a fork and the chicken is cooked through.* Remove from the oven. Carefully transfer the roasted chicken to a cutting board and slice crosswise.

Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until combined and the bok choy leaves are wilted.
