All the comfort and health of a roasted chicken supper with half the work and time! Winner, winner, sheet pan dinner!
I’ve become a bit obsessed with easy sheet pan cooking. So far I have shared Sheet Pan Fajitas, Crispy Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner and Chocolate Cherry Sheet Pan Cake. There have been others that have been totally delicious but they didn’t make the cut for the blog…aka: my photography sucks. I did a Blackened Salmon Sheet Pan dinner that looked like road kill. Can you say road kill on a food blog? Probably shouldn’t…but I did…oops!
I threw in parsnips, carrots and sweet potatoes, keeping the flavors simple. I like the taste of simple roasted chicken and veggies. I used a bit of olive oil, generous amounts of salt and pepper and tossed in a little lemon and rosemary because I had some hanging around. You could change this up with red or white potatoes, brussel sprouts and most any other firm potato or vegetable. You could also switch up the thighs for legs or both. If using breast meat, best to buy bone in to keep it from drying out.
I used parchment but foil works just as well, keeping the clean up easy! Next up…Sheet Pan Pork Chop Dinner! Oh ya!
