This one pan chicken thigh dinner with potatoes and mushrooms is so wonderful on so many levels.
- It is easy to make
- It is a quick recipe
- It is easy to clean up
- It is a family favorite (or will be after they have had one bite)
My family loves chicken dinners. In fact, one of their favorites are my Cajun blackened chicken thighs. The blackened chicken thighs are made in an iron skillet, so it is sort of a one pan chicken dinner. The big difference is there are no vegetables made with it.
The sauce that goes over the chicken before you place it in the oven is a mixture of honey, garlic and some herbs. I think I could eat it by the spoonful, it is that good.
Are you beginning to see a pattern in my recipes? I love using chicken thighs for many of my recipes. They are less expensive and juicier. To keep costs down, I buy them with the skin on and remove the skin when I get ready to prepare the recipe.
When planning my dinners, I do my best to switch things up. Creating a new recipe is always fun, but the tried and true recipes are the best.
I decided to add some cubed potatoes (with the skins on) and some quartered mushrooms to the one pan dinner. You could substitute most any vegetable you like. We love roasted zucchini. I recently made a Cajun tilapia recipe (also a one pan dinner) and the added zucchini.
Are you in the mood for steak? Try sheet pan steak and veggies. It is another easy to make and easy to clean up dinner.
When you decide which vegetable add to your one pan chicken dinner, you will want to place them in a bowl and add a couple Tablespoons of olive oil and some salt and pepper.
Make sure you consider the cooking time of the vegetables when deciding on which vegetables to add. I know potatoes will take a few minutes longer than the chicken thighs, so I cook them on their own for a few minutes. On the other hand a vegetable like broccoli will not need to cook as long, so make sure you add it after the chicken has cooked for a little while.
One Pan Chicken Thigh Dinner with vegetables
Easy to make and easy to clean up. Honey garlic chicken thighs are juicy and tender. Add the vegetable of choice.
- 2 TBL Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 TBL Butter Melted
- 2 TBL Honey
- 2 TBL Brown Sugar I Use Organic
- 3 cloves garlic minced or pressed
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 4 chicken thighs Boneless, skinless
Preheat oven to 400 and light spray a foil covered cookie sheet with olive oil spray.
Mix the EVOO, melted butter, honey, brown sugar, garlic, oregano and basil in a small bowl.
Lay the chicken in the center of the cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brush 1/2 of the sauce on one side of the thighs, flip and brush the rest of the sauce on the other side.
Add your vegetables to the pan (make sure to consider the cooking time of the chicken and vegetables. See notes in the post)
Place in the oven and roast until the internal temperature is 165. This will take about 25 minutes.
This recipe is made with ingredients that are good for you. We follow a clean eating diet and do our best to use alternatives to sugar when cooking. I didn’t mind using the Bob’s Red Mill brown sugar since it is organic and not processed.
