Place the chicken down the center of the sheet pan.

The potatoes go on one side of the chicken.  You can see here I used a couple of varieties.  I prefer to have a variation for both flavor as well as eye appeal.

Green beans go down the other side.  I drain most of the juice but keep a little to dump into the pan as it helps with moisture.

Do You Have To Buy a Whole Chicken?

I get asked this a lot and the answer is no. In fact, I often just purchase pieces of chicken already separated for this meal. It’s probably cheapest if you use a whole chicken and separate it yourself, but you can certainly just buy your favorite pieces of chicken for this meal. 

What Kind of Potatoes to Use?

I like to purchase 2 different types of potatoes (mini potatoes and red potatoes) for variety and added color when I make this sheet pan meal. You can absolutely choose your favorite(s) to include. Even purple potatoes would be great with this sheet pan meal. 

Tips For Cooking With Chicken

There are so many different meat choices available these days.  But I’m sharing some of my top tips when you chose to cook with chicken.

Buy Fresh

I used to love chicken.  Then, the company/brand I purchased from quit making chicken.  They were my go-to for frozen tenderloins wasn’t available anymore either.  I tried several other brands with no luck in finding a suitable replacement.  It got to the point where I actually gagged at the thought of making a meal that contained chicken. 

That is, until someone told me to buy fresh instead of frozen.  The difference is HUGE!  Fresh chicken tastes much better than all the frozen options I had been trying.  So now I refuse to buy frozen chicken.

If you can find a local butcher rather than picking it up at the grocery store, it’s likely that chicken will taste even better as well. 

Doneness Is Best Gauged By Temperature

I’m sure you’ve probably been told that chicken is fully cooked when the juices run clear, the meat is no longer pink, and the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees.  Make sure to put the real focus on the temperature — that’s the safest indicator of doneness.

I used to frequently overcook and dry out my chicken in the past, desiring to make sure it was cooked all the way. Then I realized I should just spend a few dollars and get a digital meat thermometer. It’s made a big difference in my chicken! 

Cover To Prevent Drying Out While Cooking

One thing that can ruin a meal quickly is dried out meat.  The secret to perfectly baked chicken is covering it with a piece of tinfoil or parchment paper while cooking!  I do like to remove for the final 15 minutes or so to get that darker color on top.

Shred Leftover Chicken Before Freezing

I love when I can get more than one meal from our chicken.  So when there’s leftovers, we quickly shred before freezing.  That makes it easier to thaw and use on a salad or to make a quick chicken taco.

Chicken Is Not Just For Special Occasions

There are so many great chicken recipes out there.  It’s a very affordable meat, especially when you have a larger family to feed like mine. Make chicken a staple in your house!

This looks like a great meal. Sheet pan and one pot meals are my favorites. I have never tried a sheet pan meal with a whole chicken but am going to try this.

I currently have a broken foot and unable to to walk, so I am looking for simple meals for my husband to make while I am down. This looks super easy for him. I love that it's all made in one pan. It looks delicious. I think my whole family would enjoy this.
