Ingredients For One Pan Chicken Potatoes and Veggies

These are the ingredients you need for a tasty one-pan chicken potatoes and veggies easy dinner.

Ingredients for sheet pan chicken and potatoes meal
  • Potatoes: You will want to cut the potatoes into bite-sized chunks. I used red potatoes, but you could easily use any potatoes you have on hand.
  • Olive Oil: Olive oil helps the seasonings to adhere to the food and also helps with browning. Additionally, it prevents all the food from sticking together, so it has many benefits!
  • Carrots: This vegetable has a natural sweetness and a nice hearty texture, perfect for accompanying chicken and the other components.
  • Bell Pepper: the pepper provides nutrients and a nice pop of color to the dish. I used green, but you can use another color if you wish.
  • Chicken Drumsticks: Other parts of chicken, like boneless chicken breasts or wings would work as well. You can even make sheet pan chicken thighs! And it is up to you whether you want the chicken skin on or not.
  • Seasonings and Herbs: This recipe has assorted seasonings for a robust flavor. You’ll need ingredients like garlic powder or granules, onion powder or granules, salt, black pepper, and dried basil, which is insanely good with chicken. Additionally, the use of chicken bouillon powder enhances the overall flavor!

This ingredient list is just a quick overview. See the recipe card below for quantities and the full recipe instructions with more details.

How To Make One Pan Chicken And Potatoes And Veggies

  • Season the potatoes chicken and vegetables. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with oil, salt, and pepper, and place on a 13 by 18-inch baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Mix and toss veggies 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 chicken on the same baking sheet.

  • Bake. Make sure all the food is in a single layer to promote even cooking. Place the baking sheet in a preheated 425 f oven and let everything bake until all ingredients are cooked through.

  • Serve warm!

Note: To ensure the chicken is done place an instant-read digital thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken. If the internal temperature reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit or above, then the chicken is done. If using large chicken breasts or other cuts, you might need to extend the cooking time. Using a thermometer can help indicate how far along it has cooked.

Expert Tips

  • Even if you cut the recipe in half, I don’t recommend using a casserole dish. One-pan meals cook best when using a sheet pan rather than a baking dish with tall sides. This allows for better heat distribution and airflow, so it is for good reason.
  • Make sure to insert the kitchen thermometer into the thickest part of the meat, not just the top of the chicken. You need to ensure the center is entirely cooked and not just the surface.
  • Feel free to adjust the seasoning mix to fit your preferences.
  • 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. I suggest avoiding aluminum foil because it might make the food stick.
  • If your oven heats unevenly and has hot spots, make sure to turn the pan at least once during the cook time, if not twice. Otherwise, one side of your meal might be overcooked while the other side is undercooked.
  • Once your leftovers cool to room temperature, transfer them to a container with a fitted lid and store them in the refrigerator.


You can make substitutions with this recipe if you lack a certain ingredient or follow a special diet.

  • Potatoes: Use Russet or red potatoes. You can also use baby potatoes!
  • Carrots: To save time on chopping the carrots, you can use baby carrots instead.
  • Low Carb – Leave out the potatoes and add low-carb vegetables like broccoli or zucchini 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.
  • Vegetarian – Replace the chicken with lots of vegetables to make an impressive vegetable recipe, creating your own vegetarian/vegan sheet pan dinner.
  • Use Any Chicken Part you have on hand – Try making a chicken wings sheet pan dinner, chicken legs and thighs sheet pan dinner, or skinless chicken breasts sheet pan dinner. Any version is delicious, and it can help reduce food waste by using what you have on hand!
  • Herbs: You can use fresh basil instead of dry. You will need more since the fresh herbs are less potent. If you don’t have any basil, substitute it for another herb, such as dried oregano, thyme, rosemary, or parsley.


These 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. They are a simple yet great addition!
  • Add More Veggies—Use different vegetables! For instance, try green beans, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, or red onions. Just remember that if you use vegetables that cook very quickly, like squash, it is best to add them later after a portion of the cooking time is done, not the entire time.
  • Sprinkle on Garnishes Before Serving. You can sprinkle on parmesan cheese, squeeze a little bit of fresh lemon juice, or drizzle on balsamic vinegar. The sheet pan ingredients pair well with many different flavor profiles.
  • Switch up the Meat Type. Use all of the same vegetables and make sheet pan sausage or use another meat. Keep in mind the cooking time will change depending on the type of protein you use because this recipe is based on the cooking time of chicken.
