I LOVE sheet pan dinners. Until just recently I never really gave them their fair chance but now I’m 100% on board with all things sheet pan. PLUS that whole easy clean up/one pan thing really makes me love them even more. Oh, and I love the fact that I literally throw it in the oven and it just roasts away to golden brown perfection. That also means that I get to heat up my house with my oven heat because I’m irrational and refuse to turn on my heat. I told Art I want to make it to November 1st before turning on the heat. He said he would like to try and make it to Thanksgiving. I’m sure we’ll meet in the middle. Every. Single. Year. We try to see how long we can wait it out. I think the longest we waited was December 1st. However, that was only because it was a weirdly warm fall.
I also love this recipe because it’s from my friend Mary Younkins (from the blog Barefeet in the Kitchen) new book The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook: Simple Family-Friendly Recipe for Everyday Home Cooking. You guys, I love this book sooooooo much. I’m always on the hunt for easy recipes but sometimes they rely too much on store bought ingredients or are just so simple they come off boring. But I’m happy to report that is not what this book is about! This book includes crazy delicious meals that are PACKED full of flavor.
Now, this sheet pan chicken and potato dinner because it’s made with chicken thighs, baby red potatoes, green beans and a delicious lemon herb drizzle. AND the skin cooks up perfectly crisp. That is my favorite part!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and get out a large rimmed sheet pan.
Place the chicken, potatoes, and green beans on the baking sheet.
Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and all of the spices. Drizzle the spice mixture over the meat, potatoes, and vegetables. Use your hands to stir the pieces around a bit and make sure everything is well coated. Be sure to leave the chicken skin-side up.
Place the pan in the center of the oven and roast for approximately 50 minutes, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. The potatoes should be tender and slightly crisp and the green beans should be browned, crisp, and somewhat shriveled.
