Is there anything better than roasted chicken with crispy skin? Surprisingly- yes, there is. Roasted chicken with crispy skin AND roasted potatoes that cook in the SAME PAN for a COMPLETE MEAL!
In this recipe, the flavor combination of fresh rosemary, garlic, and lemon pair perfectly to make your house smell amazing whilst it cooks, and it tastes even better. I may have to start making this (or something like it) at least once a week, especially since it’s so budget friendly and uses so few ingredients!
Sheet pan dinners = genius. They are an easy way to cook an entire meal in one pan with minimal effort. And I mean minimal. If you’ve never made one, it’s definitely time to start.
Here’s what to do.
In a large bowl, mix together some chicken thighs (bone-in, skin on) with some diced potatoes. Add olive oil, lemon zest and juice, fresh chopped rosemary, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Throw it on a sheet pan (and by that I mean transfer it gently). Spread out the mixture and flip the chicken so it’s skin side up. Roast.
THAT’S IT! Told you it was easy! As it cooks, the juices from the chicken are absorbed by the potatoes and the skin on the chicken thighs gets perfectly crispy. It’s truly a miracle to witness (and to eat)….
