Sheet Pan Chicken, Potatoes and Green Beans


Holy sheet — she’s at it again! Yes, that’s right I’m back at it. Right back at making sheet pan meals, that is! I love them. Admit it, you do, too! What could be simpler than one meal, with all the goods (protein, veggies, carbs) and only one pan to clean up? Plus, I have to say, I’ve yet to create or come across a sheet pan recipe that’s been bad. There are soooo many ways to get creative, it’s nearly impossible to mess this up.

The inspiration for this dish came from my love of all of the above. Well that and I came across these green beans at the store and just couldn’t resist them. Tomatoes may be on their way out of season (I’m still crying basically every night over the change from summer to fall), but the green beans are still beautiful. They looked so fresh and so green, I grabbed a produce bag and starting stuffing several fistfuls into it before I had even thought about what to do with them. I turned to the left and boom! the idea just hit me! Well, more like I ran my cart into a stack of potatoes while trying to avoid a wandering toddler, but the gist is the same.*

When I got my cart back in the aisle properly (while trying to avoid making eye contact with the other shoppers), I found the baby gold potatoes just staring right at me. I grabbed those too. How serendipitous, I thought as I mentally added chicken to the dish and started to calculate the amount of spices needed for this recipe. While I’m at the store, I’d better make sure I have all the ingredients I need, right?

What is the difference between a sheet pan and a cookie sheet?

I didn’t know the difference between the two for the longest time. Everyone seems to own at least one of these — but do you know which one you own? Making sure you’re cooking sheet pan recipes on an actual sheet pan and not a cookie sheet is important for one major reason: raised sides.

While both are metal pans in rectangular shape, the sheet pans have four raised edges. These are important for holding your food and any juices or marinades in with the thing you are baking and to keep them from spilling out all over your oven, then burning on the bottom, then setting off your smoke detector and filling your house with a lovely, burned stench that lingers for days (just guessing here). Cookie sheets will have at least one raised side, but this is so you can grab a hold of it, take it out of the oven, and remove your cookies with ease.

What other vegetables could I use with this recipe?

If you weren’t struck by the green beans and potatoes at the grocery like I was, or you want to whip together a simple dish with what you have on hand, by all means, feel free to experiment. It’s important, though, to realize what can bake appropriately in a sheet pan in this recipe (for instance, you wouldn’t want to add rice because it would become hard and crunchy and not rice-like at all).

Some good substitutes for the green beans include broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, zucchini, or Brussels sprouts. If you don’t want to use baby gold potatoes, you can try another variety of potatoes, sweet potatoes, or a winter squash like butternut squash. Or you could double down with two veggies and no starch, potatoes and squash and no green veggies, etc.

What other meats could I use with this recipe?

They key here would be to make sure your meats are all of similar thickness and can be cooked in the 25 minutes allotted on this recipe. You could substitute pork chops, or a meatier fish like tuna, salmon, or snapper. You can, of course, always cook your meat longer, but you should remove your vegetables first when they are done. Or, alternately, if you have a fast-cooking fish like salmon, you might to pop your veggies in the oven first to give them a head start.

*No toddlers were hurt in the making of this recipe.

i am cooking it to
_
nite, cannot wait

It tastes delicious after making it tonight but the sauce is very thin. You say to reduce heat on sauce and to simmer but don’t say for how long. My chicken came out pale; not at all like the GLaze in the picture.

    Once the boil becomes a simmer (no longer a rapid boil), remove it from the heat. If you are looking for more color on your chicken you could try browning it before placing it in the oven.

Delicious recipe but i have to Take a star off because it ABsolutely ruinEd my sheet pan! I reduced the sauce a lot so it was quite tHick when i put it on the chicken but as it baked And the sauce Reheated it all slid off, pooled in the side of my sheet pan, and burned. My smoke alarm went off. But i’m eating my dinner now and it’s really yummy! I Might try to make it on the stove next timE? But the saUce and spice mix wEre really wonderfUl.

    Sorry to hear that, Kayleigh! That is just crazy. I haven’t had that happen before! Glad to hear that you were able to enjoy your meal after that fiasco! 😉 Thanks for your feedback.

My hubs might have a stomach sensitivity to garlic & onions, it’s making my life miserable! Any good substitutes, everything good has garlic or onions!

    Sorry to hear that! I hope that you are able to find a good substitute 🙂

    Can you try onion powder, garlic powder? Also green onion tops are easier on tummies.

Can’t help wondering where You live- that you’re mourning the loss of summer? Here in Wyoming, It’s still pretty hot! Just wondering. . .

Hello,

I’m French and I read your blog recently, I find it great!

when you talk about degrees, it’s in Fahrenheit? We are in Celsius in France so 400 it seems impossible

    Thanks! Yes, my recipes are all written using Fahrenheit.

5 stars
Another great recipe. This combo was easy to put together and delicious. The sauce on the chicken is perfect.

I have prepared many dishes from your blog and have been pleased with the outcome. This recipe was tasty; but took much longer to cook. I followed all the suggestions provided in the recipe, chicken was uniform; used baby potatoes which I cut into quarters. After 25 minutes, the chicken and green beans were cooked; but the potatoes weren’t close to being done. I cooked the potatoes for an additional 15 minutes; had to put them in a skillet to complete cooking. Next time, I will parboil the potatoes and hope for better results.
