How to make sheet pan chicken with vegetables

This recipe is so simple – just bake the chicken, adding the vegetables in stages until everything is crispy and tender!

INGREDIENTS

For the chicken

  • Chicken thighs: I use bone in and skin on, just like my Easy Baked Chicken Thighs (Web Story). Boneless, skinless chicken thighs take less time to cook so keep that in mind if you swap it.
  • Olive oil: you can also use any neutral oil of your choice such as avocado oil.
  • Seasoning: I use Italian seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to season my chicken thighs. Feel free to change things around.

For the veggies

  • White potatoes: be sure to peel them before dicing them.
  • Green beans: you have to trim them as the ends of the beans are tough.
  • Sweet potato: again, be sure to peel them and then dice them.
  • Olive oil: you can also use any neutral oil of your choice such as avocado oil.
  • Seasoning: I use dried oregano, salt, and pepper to season the veggies. Again, you are welcomed to change things up.
  • Fresh parsley: for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

Start the chicken

First, lightly pat the chicken thighs with a paper towel. Then toss with the olive oil and spices before placing on a lined baking sheet.
Place the pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

Prep the vegetables

While the chicken is cooking, get the vegetables ready to add to the pan.
Peel both kinds of potatoes and chop into bite-sized pieces. Wash the green beans and trim off the ends, then pat dry.

Finish baking

Toss the white and sweet potato pieces with olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper.

After the chicken has baked for 20 minutes, remove from the oven and spread the potatoes in a single layer on the pan. Bake for another 15 minutes.

Then, remove the pan from the oven again and stir the potatoes. Coat the green beans with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper and add to the baking sheet.

Bake another 10 minutes, checking to make sure the chicken is cooked all the way through. Add some fresh parsley before serving if you’d like.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use boneless, skinless thighs or chicken breast instead?

Absolutely! You’ll need to adjust the baking time, though, to make sure the chicken doesn’t dry out.

Whether you use boneless, skinless thighs or breasts, the chicken will need to bake for about 25 minutes.

Skip the step where you bake the chicken by itself first. Instead, start by spreading the seasoned potatoes on the baking sheet and nestle the chicken among the pieces.

Then, continue the recipe as written. Check to make sure the chicken is cooked all the way through before serving – it should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

What temperature should you bake chicken at?

I like to bake this sheet pan chicken at 425˚F. This ensures that the chicken is cooked through while still being moist. If the temperature is lower, it’ll take longer to cook and you risk the chicken drying out.

Can I use different vegetables in this baked chicken recipe?

Sure! Because it’s such a simple recipe, it’s easy to customize it to your personal taste. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Potatoes: Substitute the white potatoes with red ones for a more buttery flavor, and leave the skin on.
  • Squash: Replace the green beans with zucchini or crookneck squash, or do a mix of both, like I do here in my Low-Carb Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies.
  • Bell pepper: Any color will work in this recipe.
  • Onion: Mix in chopped red or sweet onion with the potatoes for a caramelized flavor.

Meal prep tips

  • Make sure to store all your portions in an airtight container. I use glass containers has they don’t hold onto any smells and are easier to clean.
  • Be sure to keep the meals refrigerated until you’re ready to eat.
  • Microwave your meal prep with a damp paper towel over top of the container to keep the chicken meal prep bowls moist.
  • This meal prep will last for up to 4 days when properly stored.
  • I don’t recommend freezing this recipe as the potatoes won’t hold their texture as they thaw. If you’d like, you can freeze the cooked chicken on their own, without the vegetables.

Serving Suggestions

The sheet pan chicken and veggies is a complete meal on its own, so you really don’t need to serve anything additional with it. If you want to add some extra sides, you could serve the meal with some cooked cauliflower rice, lentils, or quinoa.
