Ingredients for Baked Chicken and Potatoes
How to Prep Sheet Pan Baked Chicken and Potatoes
I like to line my baking sheet with parchment paper or foil for easy clean up. This also helps keep the potatoes from sticking to the pan.
Start by dicing the potatoes into 1/2-inch chunks. Toss them onto a large baking sheet and spread them into a single layer. Make sure to leave room for the chicken.
Add the chicken to the other side of the pan. Drizzle the chicken and potatoes with olive oil.
Sprinkle your seasonings evenly over everything and gently toss with your hands. Bake in the oven until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are nice and golden brown.
Use Your Favorite Seasonings
I kept it simple with the spices for this one pan chicken and potatoes. It goes with everything and I’m betting you’ll have all the required spices on hand.
But feel free to change up the spices and herbs to your tastes and preferences. If you want Italian vibes, add some dried oregano and basil.
If you want a Mexican roasted chicken, use chili powder and lots of smoky cumin.
