With this recipe there are no dishes to wash and the baked chicken thighs are juicy and crispy. Garlic makes the chicken and potatoes very fragrant and delicious! Don’t be afraid that it’s too much garlic. The cloves are not crushed, so they add just enough flavor without being overpowering.

People kept asking me if  you can use chicken thighs to make the One Pan Meal {Drumsticks & Potatoes}, so I decided to make it with chicken thighs and show you that it works just as wonderful. This time I added a whole lot of garlic & one chopped up onion, because I later made gravy with the drippings leftover from the chicken. Should l tell you that it was aah-mazing?!

Following this recipe you’ll get very crispy chicken thighs, with crackly skin. The baked potatoes and carrots absorb the juices from the baked chicken thighs and create the most amazing meal ever!

Can I make this with Chicken Breast? 

Yes! Just bake the potatoes for about 40 minutes before adding the chicken breast. Cook the chicken until the internal temperature registers at 160F.

Can I Make this with Sweet Potatoes?

Yes! Just make sure to bake the chicken for about 30 minutes before adding the sweet potatoes, as they tend to cook quicker.

What should I bake the One Pan Chicken and Potatoes in? 

Using a large rimmed baking sheet for this recipe is the best if you would like your chicken and vegetables to crisp up well. The air has enough room to circulate therefore this would work great.
If you use a glass baking dish or a deep baking sheet, this would prevent the chicken and potatoes from browning. So this would be ok to use, but not the best.

Can I use other vegetables with the chicken and potato bake?

Yes. If using zucchini, asparagus or other quick roasting vegetable and add them the last 20 minutes of baking time. Frozen peas are also fine. I would add them the last 5 minutes of baking.

Can I use different seasoning for this Baked Chicken and Potatoes Recipe?

You sure can! You can add dry ranch seasoning (with no salt), or rosemary, or thyme, or whatever else you like and then bake chicken and potatoes as the rest of the recipe states. You’re the boss, you decide 😉

Bon Appetite!

    I make this bi-weekly. It is perfect. Delish, easy, and comforting. I make one change just because its what I have. I put olive oil and lots of Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute into a small bowl and brush the mixture onto the chicken, over and under the skin, with a silicone pastry brush. It makes the skin crispy and allows the chicken to really get flavorful.
