You can never have too many chicken recipes, and this roasted chicken and vegetables is a favorite dinner idea that you’ll want to have in your back pocket. When you’re wondering what to make for dinner, it doesn’t get easier than putting a pan of chicken and veggies in the oven!

This recipe features baked bone-in chicken thighs and tender roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts. We love this combination, but if you have other veggies on hand to use up, you can easily use those instead.

Roasted Chicken and Vegetables Recipe Ingredients

Ingredients for roasted chicken and vegetables recipe.

  • Bone-In Chicken Thighs: I love using bone-in chicken thighs in this recipe because the dark meat on the bone cooks up extra moist and flavorful. If you prefer to use boneless chicken thighs or chicken breasts, see my tips below.
  • Olive Oil: Rubbing the chicken with olive oil helps the seasonings to stick. You’ll also toss the veggies with olive oil.
  • Seasonings: The chicken is seasoned with a combination of Italian seasoning, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. You’ll also season the potatoes and Brussels sprouts with salt and pepper.
  • Potatoes: I like to use baby potatoes, but you can also use gold/yellow potatoes or red potatoes. Cut the potatoes into 3/4-inch pieces to ensure that they cook through in the same time as the chicken.
  • Brussels Sprouts: Trim off the stem ends and slice the sprouts in half.

How to Make Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

  1. Combine the chicken seasonings in a small bowl.
  2. Remove the skin from the chicken thighs and pat the chicken dry with paper towels. By removing the skin, the seasonings will better flavor the meat.
  3. Rub the chicken with olive oil and then the seasonings and place on a parchment paper lined rimmed baking sheet. Raw seasoned chicken thighs on baking sheet.
  4. Toss the potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place them on the baking sheet around the chicken. Uncooked potatoes and chicken thighs on baking sheet.
  5. Toss the Brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  6. Bake the chicken and potatoes in a 400° F oven for 10 minutes. Then add the Brussels sprouts to the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes more, until the chicken is cooked through to 165° F and the vegetables are tender. Brussels sprouts added to baking sheet with chicken and potatoes.

Recipe Variations

  • Boneless Chicken Thighs: Boneless thighs will cook a bit faster than bone-in thighs. I would suggest adding them to the pan at the same time as the Brussels sprouts, unless they are very large. Give the potatoes a 10 minute head start since they take longer to roast.
  • Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts: While you can use boneless chicken breasts in this recipe, they can more easily dry out if you overbake them. See my Baked Chicken Breast recipe for cook times for varying sizes of chicken breasts.
  • Other Vegetables: Broccoli, sweet potatoes (3/4-inch pieces), or carrots (1.5-inch pieces) take 20-25 minutes to roast and should be added to the pan after the bone-in chicken thighs have baked for 10 minutes. Asparagus, zucchini or green beans take 15-20 minutes to roast and should be added to the pan after the chicken thighs have baked for 15 minutes.

What to Serve with One Pan Chicken and Veggies

This baked chicken and vegetables can be a meal on its own, or you can serve it with bread or a salad. It would be delicious with Garlic Knots or Drop Biscuits and a Green Salad.

Storage and Reheating Instructions

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or in a 375° F oven until hot.
