How To Make One Pan Chicken And Potatoes And Veggies
Season the potatoes chicken and vegetables. Toss potatoes with oil, salt, and pepper, and place on a 13 by 18-inch baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Toss vegetables with oil, salt, and pepper and place them on the same baking sheet. Toss chicken with oil, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder, and dried basil, then place on the same baking sheet.
Bake. Place the baking sheet in a preheated oven and let everything bake until all ingredients are cooked through.
Serve warm! Leftovers (if any) should be put in an airtight container and placed in the fridge. They reheat well for a quick lunch the next day!
Note: To ensure the chicken is done place an instant-read digital thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken. If it reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit or above, then the chicken is done
Lining the baking sheet with parchment paper helps for easy clean-ups, prevents the ingredients from sticking to the pan, and prevents the use of extra oil to grease the pan.
You can make this recipe fit your dietary preferences by substituting the ingredients as needed.
- Low Carb - leave out the potatoes and add low carb vegetables like broccoli or zuchinni instead.
- Pescatarian - replace the chicken with fish like salmon. You'll have to cook the potatoes first before adding the fish since fish doesn't take as long to cook as chicken.

They are some ways you could switch up your one-pan chicken and potatoes and veggies dinner.
- Make it Spicy - add red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to make it spicy.
