One pan, minimal ingredients, minimal effort, and dinner can do its thing in the oven--while you do the other million things you have on your plate.
Seasoned with garlic and rosemary, chicken thighs are baked until the skin is golden and crispy, yet the meat stays tender and juicy.
But why stop with JUST chicken thighs?!
Add potatoes and Brussels sprouts to the mix and dinner is done!
Notes on Ingredients
- Chicken Thighs: This recipe is designed for bone-skin, skin-on chicken thighs. However, you can use bone-in chicken legs or breasts both work in this sheet pan chicken dinner. You can opt to leave the skin on or off, based on personal preference. I personally recommend leaving the skin on when roasting chicken thighs and removing afterward if you don't care for it. And do NOT use boneless chicken of any kind, as the meat will dry out before the vegetables get caramelized.
- Vegetables: While this recipe calls for red potatoes and Brussels sprouts, feel free to interchange the potatoes and Brussels sprouts for any hearty vegetable you like. Sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, fresh broccoli, or carrots are great options. I would just be sure to cut your vegetables into 1 to 1-½-inch chunks so that everything roasts up in the same amount of time.
How to Make Sheet Pan Chicken Thighs
- Prepare the vegetable by washing them well and patting them dry. Cut the Brussels sprouts in half and if needed, cut the potatoes into 1-½-inch cubes.
- Place the vegetables in the center of a large rimmed sheet pan or large mixing bowl. I love simply seasoning the vegetables on the sheet pan to minimize the number of dishes used.
- Season with salt, pepper, rosemary, and olive oil and toss to evenly coat the vegetables with the seasonings.
- Spread out the potatoes and Brussels sprouts evenly on the sheet pan, giving the vegetables enough space to caramelize and brown up evenly.
- Nestle the chicken thighs on the sheet pan, in between the potatoes and sprouts.
- Drizzle chicken with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Roast chicken and vegetables in the oven until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 162-165 degrees F and vegetables are browned and tender.
- Let chicken rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. This will allow the chicken to reach 165 degrees F and for the juices to redistribute through the chicken, keeping it super juicy.
Place leftover chicken and/or vegetables in an airtight container once cooled slightly. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat by broiling, microwaving, or baking at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes until warmed through.
While I love the flavor of rosemary paired with chicken and vegetables, you can opt to flavor up this chicken thigh sheet pan meal however you like. Below are a few options.
- Keep the flavoring super simple and season the vegetables and chicken with 2 teaspoons of seasoned salt in place of the rosemary, salt, and pepper.
- Add a little kick to the sheet pan dinner by using 2 teaspoons of cajun seasoning or jerk seasoning to flavor the chicken and vegetables.
- Replace the salt and pepper with 1 tablespoon of Dried Onion Soup Mix. Feel free to omit the rosemary, but the rosemary pairs well with the flavor of the dried onion soup.

Can I use another vegetable besides brussel sprouts?
Hi Theresa! While this recipe calls for red potatoes and Brussels sprouts, feel free to interchange the potatoes and Brussels sprouts for any hearty vegetable you like. Sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, fresh broccoli, or carrots are great options. I would just be sure to cut your vegetables into 1 to 1 ½-inch chunks so that everything roasts up in the same amount of time.
Question...I have trouble getting any vegetables to get done. Is the key to roasting coating the veggies with enough olive oil?
Hi Janell! The key would actually be making sure your vegetables are cut evenly and sized the same. For this recipe, I used baby potatoes and Brussels sprouts that were halved. Each was no bigger than 1 1/2 to 2 inches. I would be sure to cut your vegetables into pieces that are no larger than 2-inches and that should do the trick!
Delicious! I added a little BBQ sauce on top of the chicken for my kids. Thanks for sharing!
The rosemary garlic flavoring is so perfect! Thanks for the easy dinner idea!
Sounds great, but I can’t see what to do with the garlic? I’m assuming it gets mixed with the olive oil and put on the vegetables, can you clarify?
Yes Laura, mix with the oil and vegetables. Enjoy!
It’s in the oven now!
Can you use tin foil or parchment paper for an easier clean up?
Yes, foil works great for this recipe. The oven is a bit too hot for parchment paper. Enjoy.
