If Merriam-Webster needed a picture to complete the definition of the word EASY, this recipe for One Pan Roasted Chicken and Potatoes should be IT!
Chicken and potatoes and wine, friends! Hi and welcome to my chicken shrine.
I got an email the other day from someone telling me that I have too many chicken recipes… HUH?! TOO many? CHICKEN recipes!? Can you really have ENOUGH chicken recipes? Someone please tell me, edumacate me. I can’t wrap my head around it.
It’s just so versatile and light and juicy and easy… know whadda mean?
Thus, for the umpteenth time, my friends, I’m making you a CHICKEN dinner in 30-35ish minutes. It’s that simple. So easy. So juicy. And it will be on the table pronto.
See that amazing honey mustard sauce up there? You’ll want to eat it by the spoonfuls or just spread it on every piece of food that you make from hereon.
Kind of like my Maple Mustard Chicken, but not exactly.
ROASTED CHICKEN AND POTATOES
Here we have dijon mustard, honey, thyme, parsley, and salt & pepper. All whipped up and spread over our chicken breasts.
The potatoes and onions are tossed with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, and placed right alongside the chicken.
- Roasting chicken and veggies on a sheet pan: I have tested this method of cooking on several occasions and the best way to do it, in my opinion, is to preheat the sheet pan. Just pop it in the oven while you’re prepping the food, and when ready to use, take it out of the oven and spread out the food in one single layer. This worked perfectly with my Sheet Pan Chicken Stir Fry recipe and I’m sticking to it.
And there’s our roasted chicken and potatoes ready to be devoured. This recipe is BOTH a quick weeknight meal and something that you might feel like you’d have at a fancy dinner party. That’s a one-two punch, friends!
