This Sheet Pan Rosemary Roasted Chicken and Potatoes recipe makes a delicious and easy weeknight meal. Add a green vegetable and you’ve got a nutritious dinner that the whole family will devour!
Simple. Easy. Tasty. That’s how I would describe this sheet pan meal. Sheet pan dinners are all the rage. I can definitely understand why they are so wildly popular. Easy clean-up and ease of preparation is always a winner in my book.
I’ll serve this chicken and potatoes recipe with a big green salad or a side of veggies, like Amazing Broccoli, Sriracha Roasted Orange Cauliflower or my Favorite Green Beans. You can also add fresh green beans to this sheet pan recipe to round-out the meal and keep everything on one pan. Toss the green beans with a little EVOO and coarse salt before adding the the pan. If you’ve never tried Roasted Green Beans, then you are in for a real treat!
Roasting brings out the best flavors in food, especially vegetables. When you toss in fresh herbs, it takes the dish to a whole new level. The olive oil also makes the dish more flavorful and provides a good, healthy fat source.
I like to call roasted veggies “veggie candy” because they are that good. I have a problem controlling my portion size when I make roasted brussels sprouts. Once you start, it’s hard to stop and that’s not necessarily a bad thing! A great nutrition goal is to aim to eat green vegetables at every meal. 😉
