Tips and Variations to Recipe

  • You can use boneless chicken breasts or chicken thighs if you want. Just cut it into thinner pieces so the chicken cooks up in time.
  • Feel free to customize it with broccoli, asparagus, or other veggies of choice.
  • If you don’t have a bbq seasoning you can use any type of spices you enjoy. Garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, season salt, etc.
  • The chicken is done when it reads 165 degrees internally when you use a meat thermometer.
  • You can make a homemade bbq sauce to use for flavoring the chicken and potatoes before serving.
  • Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes once you remove it from the oven. This will help lock in moisture and prevent your chicken from being dry.

Storing

If you do not eat all the chicken and veggies simply store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Then reheat as you wish when you are ready to eat.

Now you can also freeze any of the chicken and veggies you do not eat right away. Place in a freezer-friendly container and freeze for 2-3 months. Then thaw in the fridge or reheat straight from frozen.

Can I use any type of potato for this sheet pan recipe?

Of course! Simply just dice the potatoes into smaller pieces so that they have time to fully cook and become fork-tender.

Why is my chicken dry after being baked in the oven?

If your chicken is dry, it means you probably overcooked the chicken. I highly recommend investing in a meat thermometer so that when you are cooking your chicken you ensure it doesn’t overcook. Chicken is ready when it reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
