Sheet Pan Herb-Roasted Chicken with Red Potatoes is an amazingly simple and savory dinner. I love sheet pan meals because they are super easy to bake and super easy to clean up! The only work you really have to do is process the ingredients that go on the sheet pan. Here, you’re just cutting up some small potatoes and chopping some onion and garlic and getting a few herbs ready to go. Wash the kale and rough chop it. I always rinse and pat dry the chicken, and I know that’s a highly controversial topic, but that’s what I do. If you don’t, then no worries ~ you’ve managed to skip a step and save time!

For best results, I suggest using a larger three-quarter size sheet pan like this one instead of a standard 13” x 18” half sheet pan for this recipe. This will allow the vegetables enough room to be spread into a single layer without overcrowding, while keeping all ingredients on one single pan. Make sure you use a non-stick liner like this one for super easy cleanup!

Keeping all ingredients on a single sheet pan is important in this case because the juice from the chicken and lemon wedges will mingle with the fresh herbs to infuse the potatoes, onion, and kale with incredible flavor while cooking, and you totally want that. After all, you spent all of 10 minutes prepping the food to go on the sheet pan, so make sure you enjoy those delicious flavors and aromas!

Ingredients
  • 1½ lbs. red potatoes, cleaned and cut in half
  • 1 large red onion, roughly chopped
  • 
6-8 whole garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 
3 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 T. fresh rosemary, minced
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 10-12 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 large lemon, cut into 8 wedges
  • 
2 c. fresh kale, washed, tough stems removed, and thinly sliced
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine potatoes, red onions, minced garlic, olive oil, and fresh rosemary. Generously season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and arrange the veggies on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.

These healthy chicken fajita lettuce wraps get a zesty kick from my creamy cilantro avocado jalapeño sauce which can be made the day before and kept in the fridge until you need it. (Caution: this stuff is addictive – might want to make a double batch!)

I’ve also included my homemade fajita seasoning that I like to use. Why not use store-bought? You can, no problem, but I like to personalize my seasoning with the flavors that I would rather have intensified and that I know my family likes. Play around with the amounts to personalize it your own tastes. For example, you may like a heavier amount of chili powder or cayenne pepper, or less. Adjust it according to your tastes and keep a batch on hand for all your Tex-Mex recipes. Store it in an airtight container, or glass jars like these for later use.

Plan ahead with this meal by purchasing a rotisserie chicken or two and pre-shredding it. That will make this recipe go even more quickly on those busy nights when you want to get dinner on the table as quickly as possible.

Quick and Easy Chicken Fiesta Skillet

This quick and easy one-pan chicken fiesta skillet can be on the table in just 30 minutes. It’s a healthy and satisfying meal, perfect for busy weeknights. You can easily pair it with yummy sides like rice and refried beans, or even a fresh salad.

What I love about this chicken fiesta skillet meal is that it’s so easy to put together. It’s quick because you’re making it all in just one pan. Whether you use a cast-iron skillet like this one, or a stainless steel skillet, this dish comes together with minimal work.

Here’s how it goes down.

  • First, prep your veggies and herbs. Slice and dice the onion and peppers and set aside. Chop the cilantro and set aside.
  • Second, prep your chicken. Slice it into bite-sized chunks and set aside.
  • Third, prep your canned and/or frozen veggies. Rinse and drain the black beans. Do the same for the corn if you’re using canned corn instead of frozen.
  • Fourth, have all your spices at the ready.
  • Fifth, fire up the skillet and get ready to roll!

From here, it’s as simple as adding the onions and peppers to skillet and letting them soften a bit before adding the chicken and spices. Let the chicken brown a bit and then throw in the beans and corn. Cook a bit, taste, re-season if necessary and you’re practically done!

Easy Chicken Fiesta Skillet

Between the stages of cooking and browning, you might want to grate some cheese, prepare an avocado, slice a lime or two, if you want to serve those with the fiesta skillet. You might want to serve this over a brown rice, so factor that in if it’s something that your family likes.

Don’t wait for Cinco de Mayo to make this – throw it together tonight and be sure to keep it in your quick and easy rotation of tasty dinners to make!

Skillet Garlic Chicken With Sun-dried Tomatoes and Pecorino Cream Sauce

Bring a taste of Tuscany home with this simple, quick and delicious recipe for Skillet Garlic Chicken with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Pecorino Cream Sauce.

Looking for a quick chicken meal to make on those busy days? This tasty Skillet Garlic Chicken with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Pecorino Cream Sauce can be ready in just 30 minutes!

I used a cast-iron skillet for this meal,(I love this one with a lid!) but you can also use a stainless steel skillet if you prefer. Just make sure it’s a large enough with high enough sides to hold all the ingredients without spilling over.

Bring a taste of Tuscany home with this simple, quick and delicious recipe for Skillet Garlic Chicken with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Pecorino Cream Sauce.

Prepare your chicken by cutting the chicken breasts into large bite-sized pieces. Set aside.

Heat olive oil and garlic in the skillet and sauté until medium brown. Remove garlic with a slotted spatula and discard. You now have lovely garlic-infused olive oil left in the skillet. Add the chicken to the skillet, season with a little salt and pepper, and cook until browned on all sides. Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside.

To the skillet add half & half and chicken broth; stir carefully to incorporate all the yummy browned bits left in the bottom of the skillet.

About the cheeses: Pecorino Romano is a well known and distinctive Tuscan cheese made from 100% sheep’s milk. Although used interchangeably in recipes with the more mild Parmesan, it’s not the most ideal swap due to Pecorino’s stronger flavor.

In this recipe, I’ve balanced an equal amount of Parmesan with the stronger flavor of Pecorino Romano to create a delicious balance of the two. Feel free to play with the ratio to get the flavor that suits you.

Add oregano and grated cheese to the skillet and whisk until cheese is completely melted. (I use this cheese grater.)

Reduce heat and add sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Simmer until tomatoes soften and spinach wilts. Add the chicken back in to warm it up; let it simmer for just a bit, then serve up this glorious Tuscan dish and enjoy!
