Ingredients Needed for Sheet Pan Garlic Herb Chicken with Potatoes

This is one of the easiest meals you will ever make. Roasted chicken breast with potatoes seasoned with herbs and spices are packed with amazing flavor and all baked on the same pan.

  • Chicken Breasts – we used the boneless, skinless variety. Each breast is about 8 ounces and we left them whole. For quicker cooking time, you can cut them in half lengthwise with a very sharp knife, making a thinner cut. (if you go this route, cut the potatoes into thinner wedges so they bake faster too!)
  • Potatoes – we love Yukon Gold potatoes for crispy baked wedges. The skin is super thin so the potatoes require no peeling. Another great option is russet potatoes!
  • Olive Oil – Olive oil is our healthy choice… but any vegetable oil will do just fine!
  • Garlic Powder – a true workhorse of the spice rack, add savory flavor that compliments both the chicken and potatoes.
  • Dried Parsley Flakes – adds earthy flavor to this dish.
  • Paprika – for beautiful color and flavor. Try using smoked paprika…it’s amazing!
  • Salt – brings out the flavor of just about everything! We used regular old table salt for this recipe. For variety, try a flavored sea salt!
  • Black Pepper – adds light heat and flavor.
  • Dried Rosemary – compliments the chicken and adds savory flavor. Thyme is a delicious substitute!

Why Use a Sheet Pan?

Sheet pan dinners are a super popular way to make a one pan meal! Everything is cooked together and clean-up is a breeze.

The best part is you cook the meat in single portion sizes with the veggies or for this recipe the potatoes, roasted right alongside. You can add as much meat and veggies as you like, in whatever ratio you like…it’s the perfect cooking style for a healthy weeknight meal.

💡Quick Tips!

Cut your potato wedges into same-sized pieces for even cooking.

Slice super thick chicken breasts in half lengthwise before baking. A thinner breast will cook ALOT faster than thick ones. You can buy chicken cutlets where this is already done for you.

Use a large rimmed sheet pan, or two smaller ones so the chicken and potatoes are not over-crowded. I used this brand of aluminum 1/2-sheet pan to make this recipe!

While the meat and potatoes are cooking, mix up a tasty sauce like fan fav garlic dill aioli or our super popular Korean barbecue sauce so you’re ready to go when the meat comes sizzling out of the oven. Serve warm.
