This easy sheet pan chicken thighs and potatoes recipe is a one-pan chicken dinner that is not only quick and easy, but it is also the best sheet pan recipe you would try. It’s insanely delicious, dairy-free, and gluten-free as well. These chicken thighs were marinated in everyday herbs and spices while the potatoes were tossed in some vegetable oil and Italian seasoning before being baked to perfection. It was served with some delicious stovetop broccoli and grated parmesan cheese.
What makes this sheet pan chicken thighs and potatoes recipe great
What is not to love about this quick one-pan chicken and potatoes dinner? You put the marinated chicken and seasoned potatoes in a pan and let the oven do the rest of the job for you. I feel the same way about one-pot meals too like my popular one-pot rice and chicken recipe. You don’t need to marinate the chicken except if you have time and would prefer it.
I love the fact that these methods of cooking afford you an extra 30 minutes to put your feet up. You can make a quick cuppa and catch up on missed gist on social media or read a book. More importantly, fewer dishes to clean up. Happy days hey! Also, this sheet pan meal is great for meal prep.

My one-pan chicken and potato dinner is loaded with spices, it is flavorful, and the chicken thighs are juicy, tender, and utterly delicious. Also, the potatoes were cooked to perfection, and both the chicken thighs and potatoes were cooked at the same time. Five minutes before I took my one-pan chicken dinner out of the oven, I quickly rustled up a quick 5 minutes stovetop broccoli with parmesan (recipe coming soon). It was so delicious!

Cut the potato into halves or smaller chunks, transfer to a bowl add the spices and vegetable oil and mix till combined, then spread the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Alternatively, do this step in the baking pan.
Add the chicken and marinade to a bowl. Rub the marinade into the chicken until well coated then add the chicken to the pan alongside the potatoes (keep them on a single layer).
Place the baking tray in the oven and roast for 40 to 45 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked and the internal temperature registers 165F/73C when checked with an instant read thermometer.
Take the baking tray out of the oven and leave it to rest for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
- Use any herbs of choice on the potatoes
- I used charlotte potato for this recipe, but you can use any baking potato (including red potatoes) you have at hand. Make sure it is cut into equal sizes and smaller chunks so they bake evenly.
- Bake the chicken and potatoes in a ceramic baking dish
- Instead of stovetop broccoli, 15 minutes before you take the chicken and potatoes out of the oven, add the broccoli floret (tossed with tiny salt and melted butter) and continue to roast in the oven. Roasted broccoli is insanely delicious.
- Use other vegetables of choice like green beans, carrots etc
