Simple yet delicious one pan chicken and potatoes recipe is a healthy dinner idea that is super cost-effective and just plain convenient!

Not to mention the everyone loves it, so it is a win-win all around.

All action happens in the same baking dish! It took me a while to take a leap of faith, mainly because I was concerned the meat would come out dry and vegetables overcooked. None of that happened.

Everything is then baked in the oven with juicy and tender results, plus the tiny tomatoes bursting with sweetness just tops it off. Even better one pan equals easy clean up!

Another major bonus is that leftovers can be used to pack lunches for the the next day.

Ingredients Needed

Chicken breasts, olive oil, oregano, black pepper, salt, baby potatoes, lemon, parsley, garlic, grape tomatoes.
  • Chicken: You will need one pound of chicken breasts that are cut into 7-8 cutlets for even sooking.
  • Baby potatoes: Also known as new potatoes they have a thinner softer skin and are lower in starch. You might find them called creamer potatoes, too!
  • Tomatoes: Grape tomatoes aren’t as juicy as cherry tomatoes so they won’t be too runny or cause too much of a mess. However, their juice is what contributes to delicious sauce!
  • Oil: A good quality olive oil enhances the flavors, the health benefits and prevents sticking of this one pan chicken recipe.
  • Lemon: Fresh lemon juice is the best.
  • Seasoning: Dried oregano, fresh garlic cloves, salt, and pepper are to die-for flavor combo.
  • Garnish: A sprinkling of fresh parsley or dill liven this dish up with fresh taste.

Tips for Best Results

  • Boneless and skinless chicken thighs are OK instead of chicken breast for this one pan chicken recipe.
  • If you choose to use bone-in or skin-on chicken, you might need to adjust your cooking time. Cook the chicken a bit first and then add the potatoes and veggies.
  • Regular size potatoes cubed into 2″ pieces, but only use yellow or red potatoes, not russet potatoes. Save russets for healthy mashed potatoes.
  • Pat potatoes dry: This removes excess moisture so everything roasts vs. steams.
  • Seasoning: Try Italian seasoning spice in place of dried oregano.

How to Store and Reheat

Store: Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container up to 4 days. I find this one pan chicken recipe is the perfect size for a family of 4 one dinner.

Do not freeze. Potatoes just don’t freeze well because there is not enough fiber to help them hold up against the ice crystals.

Reheat: Broil for about 5-10 minutes, not too close to the broiler. Remove when warmed through. You can also pan fry them on a ceramic non-stick skillet on medium heat. No oil is necessary.

FAQs

Is it OK to bake chicken and potatoes together?

Yes. You want to make sure that your chicken is neither too thick nor too thin, and the veggies are cut in uniform-sized pieces for even cooking.

Should I marinate my chicken?

There’s no need to marinate the chicken ahead of time, but if you do have a bit of extra time, feel free to do so! My Greek chicken marinade would compliment the flavors in this sheet pan.

What should I serve with this one pan dinner?

The beauty of one pan meals are that it’s already complete but here are some vegetable side dishes that would compliment this dinner nicely. Try lemon kale salad, garlic green beans, or roasted cauliflower with parmesan cheese.

How long does it keep?

Leftovers keep well for 4 days covered in the refrigerator. Try cold leftovers on a salad for an easy lunch idea!

    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.
