Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! HAHAHA, I have always wanted to say that. Sheet Pan Roast Chicken Thighs with Potatoes and Carrots is a winner in my book because it is so easy to prepare.

This has been my go-to seasoning for the past 15 years!

Pour oil onto sheet pan and spread it around. Place the chicken, potatoes {don’t forget to cut them in half}, and the carrots on the pan. Rub them around in the oil to coat.

Sprinkle half of the seasoning mixture over everything in the pan, flip them over and sprinkle the remaining mix over the top. Rub around to make sure they are coated and the chicken is skin side up and the potatoes are cut side down…..

Yes you could do all of this in a bowl, but where’s the fun in that? 😉

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes to get the skin extra crispy, if desired…..

and serve with a green salad or some other sort of vegetation.

Notes:

  • *I used date sugar as a replacement for brown sugar so I could try to keep this dish Paleo. I know that coconut sugar is Paleo, but I am not positive about the date sugar. I can’t find a straight answer anywhere.
  • The coconut/date sugar is used to caramelize the seasonings on the skin, not to add sweetness. Leave it out if you are avoiding sweeteners.
  • Test the potatoes with a fork or thin knife to see if they are tender. If not, remove the chicken and carrots and cook until the potatoes are done to your liking.

Herbs de Provence is a blend that contains savory, marjoram, rosemary, thyme, and oregano. Lavender leaves are also included in products in the North American market. There is no official recipe, so the mixtures will vary by brand.

    Made this tonight for dinner. Yum! I made a few changes based on what I had. My bag of potatoes was 24 oz of mixed color potatoes (red, white, gold, purple). I had 7 medium carrots that I peeled and sliced in 1.5 – 2 inch pieces. I didn’t have Herbs de Provence, but made the rest of the spice mix as directed. I tossed the carrots and potatoes with oil and spices in a bowl and put them on 1/2 of a sheet pan. I put oil down on the other 1/2, put down the chicken, and sprinkled the rest of the spice mix on. Then I laid fresh sprigs of thyme and rosemary on top of everything. Next time, I’ll add more salt and double the amount of the spice mix, but still use fresh thyme and rosemary. This was delicious. My picky husband, both of my kids (2 and 7), and I all loved it.
