This One Pan Meal takes little prep time, and in 45 minutes bakes together in the oven, the juices from the chicken flavoring the potatoes.
In less than an hour from start to finish, you have a full meal ready to go, and tasty leftovers if you double up on ingredients. Getting it to all bake in the same time is just a matter of sizing the three ingredients correctly. I used beautiful purple and yellow carrots, but any carrot will do nicely here. Put the pan in the oven, then put your feet up and have a drink while you wait for dinner. Enjoy!
Chicken, Potatoes & Carrots – One Pan Meal
6 chicken drumsticks
4 large red potatoes, skin on
6 large purple carrots
olive oilsalt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400. Cut potatoes into large pieces – either halves or quarters, depending on the size of the potatoes. Cut the carrots into halves or thirds lengthwise. Slice the fat end of the carrot pieces into quarters, and the midsection pieces into halves. The idea is to have the thickness of the carrots all about the same.
Line a large rimmed sheet pan with parchment. Arrange the drumsticks at one end, potatoes in the middle, and carrots on the other end. Lightly coat everything with olive oil, then a dusting of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bake for 45 minutes or until everything is tender and tasty.
