This DELICIOUS sheet pan chicken and vegetable dinner gets dinner on the table without any fuss. I use chicken leg/thigh quarters well seasoned with granulated garlic, salt, pepper and thyme. Rosemary would be a tasty addition to this recipe as well. If you like you can use a cut up whole chicken if you like white meat.
This is a healthy and budget friendly dinner that is dinner party worthy. The potatoes, carrots and Brussels sprouts cook in the chicken juices to absorb all the flavor and become savory and tender.
Sheet pans are an essential tool in the kitchen, I use them for everything from baking cookies to roasting meats. It’s important to have large (these are 13×18 inches with 1 inch high sides), sturdy sheet pans that can stand up the the weight of a full dinner like this. Make sure you use a heavy sheet pan with sides like this one. You can order these at Amazon through this Amazon affiliate link >> http://amzn.to/1rIsssx
