Make a delicious family dinner with this One Pan Roast Chicken and Vegetables recipe. Succulent chicken with your favourite roast veggies. Pure comfort food!
You just can’t go wrong with a simple roast chicken with all those yummy vegetables infused with the chicken juices. Pretty close to a perfect Fall or Winter meal in my book. And all in one pan – even better. I like to serve it with a quick chicken gravy that I make in 5 minutes or our Cranberry Orange Relish in 5 Minutes (which I happened to have left over after Thanksgiving), Homemade Chunky Applesauce or Savoury Peach Sauce.
There’s no need to use precise measurements for this recipe. The recipe is just a guideline, including which vegetables and seasonings to use. Keep in mind that the vegetables don’t get crispy in this recipe because of the juices and steam from the chicken. They are nevertheless amazing, soft and flavourful. One caution – brussel sprouts can be bitter so you may want to use a different vegetable, or try microwaving them for about 90 seconds with a bit of sugar before you add them to the pan.
This dish can be made ahead to the point of roasting. It’s best to bring the chicken to room temperature for half an hour before roasting.
Tailor to your Taste and Time
- Other vegetables that work well for roasting include: parsnips, carrots, celery, eggplant, green beans, butternut squash. If you don’t like soft vegetables, stick with potatoes, onions, parsnips, carrots and celery. Or, add other ones half way through the roasting so they don’t become too soft. I love them soft so I don’t bother!
- Feel free to just use potatoes and onions or any one or two vegetables to cut down on prep time.
- Vary the herbs with fresh or dried oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage or a combination.
- You can also use chicken pieces in this recipe, but cut the cooking time to about 35-45 minutes. Then put your vegetables back in the oven for an additional 20 minutes or so while keeping the chicken warm on the counter covered in foil.
