This is the very best one pan-roasted chicken and potatoes. The chicken is so juicy and flavorful and the potatoes have the best crispy edges. Make dinner a breeze with this recipe!
Tell me, who doesn’t love chicken and potatoes? This delicious dinner is made with juicy, flavorful chicken, potatoes, and the best seasonings. And, it’s all made on one sheet pan, with a 10 minute prep time! Just toss everything together on your sheet pan, and let other ovens work its magic.
This has been one of my go-to dishes since the baby has joined us 3 weeks ago. It’s so easy to make and the leftovers are so delicious too. Serving it is so easy, it pairs wonderfully with a big green salad like Classic Cesar Salad, Greek Orzo Pasta Salad, or Beet and Goat Cheese Salad + Golden Balsamic Dressing. It’s an easy dinner that tastes like you spent hours making it.
This dish is super easy to customize, you can easily add in your favorite spices, and bake it with any veggies you like or have on hand. I sometimes will add Brussel sprouts, squash, or carrots.
TOP TIPS FOR ROASTING CHICKEN AND POTATOES
Season Generously – I like to add in a little extra seasoning once everything is arranged on the sheet pan. Make sure you season all sides of the chicken, salt enhances the juicy chicken flavors! You can always add more of the seasonings you like, you can’t go wrong with this recipe!
Cooking time – Unfortunately, not all chickens are equal, the cooking time is always an estimate. When done chicken juices should run clear, you can always use a meat thermometer to check. Do not overcook the chicken it will be chewy and dry. If you like the chicken skin chared then broil it for a few minutes to get that crispy skin at the end of baking.
