Description

This tasty Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner is a quick weeknight meal. It features chicken with simple roasted potatoes and carrots.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 teaspoons of your favorite spice rub for chicken 
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil plus 2 1/2 tablespoons oil divided
  • 3 skinless bone-in chicken thighs 
  • 13 ounces (about 5 8-inch) whole raw carrots
  • 1 1/2 pounds ( 3 medium) yellow potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Line sheet pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.  If you do not want to line the pan with foil, spray the sheet pan with cooking spray.
  3. Remove the skin from the chicken thighs (optional).
  4. Dry the chicken with a paper towel
  5. Combine the spice mix with 3 teaspoons of oil.
  6. Rub the spice oil combination on the chicken and place the chicken on the pan.
  7. Wash carrots and cut off the stem and the tip.  Slice the carrots into 3/4 inch pieces.
  8. Place the carrots on the sheet pan and drizzle 1 tablespoon oil on the carrots.  Season with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and a 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  Toss.
  9. Wash the potatoes and slice them into 3/4 inch cubes.  Place the potatoes on the sheet pan and drizzle with 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil.  Season with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  Toss
  10. Place pan in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.  Rotate pan and bake an additional 15 minutes or until the vegetables are fork-tender and the chicken is slightly golden brown and has reached an internal temperature of  165°F.  If the vegetables finish cooking before the chicken, remove them from the oven and cover them to keep them warm.  
  11. Remove from the oven.  Let rest 5 minutes so that the juices reabsorb into the chicken.  
  12. Drizzle the chicken with pan juices and serve.
  13. Store leftovers in a sealed container for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator.  Reheat in a microwave or covered dish in the oven until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.

* If you do not have a spice rub for the chicken, brush them with oil and season each chicken piece with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  

* This recipe is for 3 serving because chicken thighs usually come 3 in a package.  This recipe can easily be adjusted to feed more people.
