- Chicken Thighs--Bone-in chicken legs, breasts, and thighs all work in this sheet pan chicken dinner. You can opt to leave the skin on or off. Do NOT use boneless chicken, as the meat will dry out before the vegetables get caramelized.
- Vegetables--Interchange with potatoes and Brussels sprouts for any hearty vegetable you like--sweet potato chunks, cubed russet potatoes, fresh broccoli, carrots. Just have all the vegetables be approximately the same size so they roast at the same rate (I recommend 1 to 1 ½ inch chunks for all vegetables.)
