Equipment

  • 1 large rimmed sheet pan (13x18x1) (Note 1)

Ingredients

Chicken Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon each: Italian seasoning and olive oil
  • teaspoon paprika
  • ¾ teaspoon each: onion and garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon each: salt and pepper
  • cup chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, optional
  • 6 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs (2¼ lbs.) (Note 2)

Veggies

  • 2 heaping cups (13.5 oz) unpeeled golden potatoes, cut to 1-inch pieces
  • large yellow onions, halved and sliced into 1-inch thick chunks
  • cups (8.5 oz) peeled carrots, cut to 1½ inches long x 1/2-inch thick (3 carrots)
  • ½ teaspoon each: salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Optional: fresh thyme, crusty buttered bread for dunking in sauce!

Instructions

  • CHICKEN: In a bowl, combine all marinade ingredients except for the chicken. Whisk until smooth. Add the chicken and toss until well coated. Optionally, cover and marinate overnight, or let stand at room temperature while preparing veggies.
  • PREP: Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Generously grease a rimmed 13x18-inch sheet pan with cooking spray.
  • VEGGIES: On the greased pan, combine potatoes, onions, carrots, salt, pepper, and oil. Toss well, then spread out in an even layer. Make space on the pan to nestle in the chicken. Scrape any leftover marinade on top of the chicken. Carefully pour one cup of chicken broth over the veggies. Spray everything generously with cooking spray.
  • BAKE: Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until the veggies are crisp-tender and the chicken is golden. Switch the oven to Broil and move the tray to the top shelf. Broil for 1-2 minutes, watching carefully, until there's a slight char on top.
  • ENJOY: Remove from oven and let stand for 5-10 minutes. Spoon pan juices over the veggies and chicken. Add fresh thyme if desired. Serve with the liquid spooned on top. Enjoy with crusty buttered bread to dredge up that extra pan sauce. (yum!)

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Sheet pan: Use a sheet pan with sides (13x18-inches). A smaller pan crowds ingredients, hindering even cooking. A larger pan causes broth to evaporate too quickly.
Note 2: Chicken: This recipe's cooking time is tailored for bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. Other cuts can become too dry from the long oven time. Additionally, the skin and fat from these thighs add a lot of flavor to the veggies.
