Chicken and Potatoes

You will love this one pan chicken and potatoes for your next weeknight dinner or lunches for a week. Potatoes were crispy coated in dried oregano, garlic powder and generous amount of olive oil. And roasted chicken breast came out juicy and tender with roasted tiny tomatoes on top. And all action happens in one pan.

One Pan Dinner Love

I’m in love with sheet pan dinners! It took me a while to take a leap of faith mainly because I was concerned meat would come out dry and vegetables overcooked. But nothing of that happened because “I’m not just a pretty face”. Alex can’t stop raving about the magic of  “shit pan dinners” as well. His exact words, not mine.

Also check out my one pan salmon with butternut squash and brussels sprouts in honey garlic sauce (I didn’t know and dirtied a few bowls but so worth it!), and sweet potatoes and eggs.

What Are Best Potatoes to Use?

Baby potatoes are not the only option. Do not just run to the store. You can use regular size potatoes cubed into 2″ pieces.

  • Yellow potatoes or yellow flesh potatoes if you are in Canada. Some avid potato fans told me the equivalent in the US is Yukon Gold. Also sometimes you can find “Canadian” potatoes in the US. Whatever that means.
  • Red potatoes.

Tip: Do not use russet potatoes. They make the best healthy mashed potatoes.

What Is the Size of Baking Sheet?

To make roasted chicken breast and potatoes, I use rimmed baking sheet that is called half sheet 12 x 18 inches. It is a bit larger than jelly roll pan that runs 10 by 15 inches. I use the same sheet for baking cookies and sheet pan dinners. This size of tray fed 4 of us one night really well.

Line it with unbleached parchment paper or re-usable silicone mats. I’m in love with my Amazon Basics silicone mats – I swear I roast more because I don’t have to tear parchment paper each time. After wash, I store mat right inside the sheet, pull out when ready to cook and that’s it.

Tip: You can also use a ceramic baking dish of same size.

How to Make Chicken and Potatoes in the Oven

  1. Lay chicken cutlets on one side and potatoes on the other side in a single layer.
  2. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with spices, and using your hands, mix each “pile” to coat separately, and spread in a single layer after mixing.
  3. Adding grape tomatoes on top of chicken prevents it from over drying, adds flavour and “a veggie factor” (although technically, tomato is a fruit).
  4. Roast chicken and potatoes in the oven on a bottom rack uncovered for 25 minutes, then broil for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven, squeeze lemon over entire dish, and sprinkle with dill or parsley.

Now, wasn’t this one pan chicken dinner damn good and easy?! Come back and tell me if you added any personal touch. Enjoy!

  1. I just moved to another country and am still setting up the kitchen. I was so happy to find this recipe and make my family a healthy dinner that everyone enjoyed, despite limited ingredients. Thank you!

  2. My husband who is very picky loved this recipe very much. Simple ingredients and easy to make. Will make again. Love it!

  3. Awesome dinner tonight! Thank you! I had chicken tenders so I used those. I also put the cut side of tomatoes face down since you said the purpose was to keep the chicken moist. I added a sliced Vidalia onion to the potatoes but I think it kept them from browning so I won’t do that again! Hubby says, “Thank you, Olena!” I will look for more of your recipes for sure.

    1. And I can imagine the leftover chicken and tomatoes reheated with feta in a wrap! Yummo! May have to get some feta in the morning!

  4. In the oven now… smells delicious & can’t wait to taste this easy dish! As always with everything I’ve made thus far I’m sure it will be a winner! And, by the way, love the new layout of your blog!! Thanks Olena for making such easy delicious dishes!

      1. Just as I thought… delicious!! I couldn’t wait to taste it before husband got home from work. Now I can’t wait for him to taste although, he will smell the aroma when he walks in… mouth watering! I’m going to make your Avocado & Green Onion salad once again!
        Also, just to note your hard work in the new layout of your blog paid off… easier to navigate! Have a blessed day!

  5. Hi Olena! I just found your chicken and potatoes sheetpan recipe and I just put it in the oven! We are in Chilliwack in the Fraser Valley…more snow today…but looking forward to dinner tonight! Thank you!

    1. Hi Leah! More snow? LOL. I am kind of done with it but I’m sure it will get here too… It was fun but time for spring. We just moved from Maple Ridge to the island. I’m sure you have read… Well, enjoy my recipe! I’m testing chicken stir fry right now.

  6. What a great recipe! I mixed regular potatoes with sweet potatoes and for the last 10 minutes in the oven anetaI added some green beans and sliced courgette seasoned the same way as potatoes. Will definitely make it again… and again:):):)
