One Pan Baked Chicken and Potatoes

A baking pan with baked chicken and potatoes

This one pan baked chicken and potatoes is a great midweek meal to add to your rotation .

No marinate, no fancy ingredients, it’s a one pan, simple meal that is ready in an hour. Just toss the chicken thighs, baby potatoes, and chopped onion with olive oil, garlic, thyme, dried oregano, paprika, salt and pepper, then pop it in the oven. The chicken skin turns very crispy, while the meat stays juicy

Serve the baked chicken and potatoes with vegetables or with a salad to make it a complete meal.

I made this  recipe with chicken thighs, you can replace them with chicken breasts, drumsticks or with a combination of the three.  If you are using other chicken cuts,  you may have to adjust the cooking time, as needed.

I used salt, pepper, paprika, dried oregano, and thyme but you can change them around to suit your preferences.

I’d gladly eat this baked chicken and potatoes for dinner every day of the week – it’s so delicious, quick and easy!

I’d love to hear what you think if you give it a try! Leave a comment and don’t forget to take a picture and share it on my Facebook page or tag it #aseasyasapplepie on Instagram!

The chicken was sooo juicy and the crispy skin was perfect. Definitely needed salt once done so next time I will try to add seasoned salt or Mrs. Dash. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  7. Made it as a Sunday dinner, and it turned out great. Pan with water: great idea! Thank you for this recipe!

  8. OMG this was so easy,convenient and tasty. Didn’t have some of the spices so I used oregano and seasoned salt. But if you use the fresh garlic alone with the onions you will still get the flavors you desire. Definitely putting this recipe in my weekly rotation .

  9. I’m making it right now!

  10. Second time this weekmaking this!  My son, fussy eater, loves it and Im adding lots of veg this week, so good and easy! thanks

  11. I just made this for dinner and it’s
    I used my own spin

  12. Elena,
    What a wonderful meal. Made this last night. Followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. Will make again. My husband and son gave it a big thumbs up. Thank you.

  13. Cover or uncovered? 

  14. I would like to try this recipe. if I use chicken breasts do I need to cut them smaller and does it still work if there is no skin on the chicken breast

  15. This was a perfect one-pan meal! I made this on a day I had to work late, and was still able to get dinner on the table on time. I didn’t have all the seasonings so I used what I had and it was delish!. DH wants to add this to the weekly rotation. I’m so glad because it was easy & quick!

  16. Fixed this for supper tonight and it was easy and delicious! Thank you!

  17. This is a fantastic recipe! Absolutely delicious, fuss-free and just as good as a traditional roast. The quick prep and cooking time means that a roast dinner on a weeknight is now a possibility! Thanks for sharing!

  18. Made it tonight for dinner is was awesome.  I added red and yellow peppers and carrots it was delicious.  Definitely will make again.  Thank you for making a easy week day meal. 

  19. Looks and smells delicious !

  20. It was so good I used small red potatoes fresh herbs & dice carrots I seasoned the chicken with pica pepper sauce 

  21. Delicious and love how simple it was to make. I used a combination of breasts and thighs, both boneless/skinless, and saw the wise suggestion to add a pan of water in the oven – I filled a ramekin and it was perfect! Must remember this trick for other recipes!
    In addition to the seasonings in the recipe, I used seasoning salt in place of salt, and added white pepper too. Everything came out moist and delicious. 
    One “pro tip” – don’t forget to cut the baby potatoes in half like (ahem) someone did! 

  22. Remarkable taste! Coupled with the ease in preparing makes this a rotation meal! We used chicken breast cut in half as to shorten their cooking time & expose more of the meat to the great seasoning medley. The Hungarian paprika I used blended well with the other herbs, garlic, onion, and oil. 
    I’ll pass this recipe on to my daughters and friends. I again tip my hat to you for providing a splendid recipe. 

  23. Brilliant tip to keep the meat moist with a separate pan of water in the oven!! Thank you! Great recipe!!

  24. This was so good and so quick to make! I omitted the paprika only because I’m not a fan of it and instead of bone in skin on thighs I used skinless thigh filets and baked for 40 minutes at 425. These came out perfect!! Cleanup was a breeze too! I always prefer thighs over breasts for the sheer fact the meat comes out so juicy and tender. I felt like a master chef and enjoyed every bite, so did my family! Great recipe, thanks for taking the guess work out of wondering what or how to make a delicious meal in under an hour! 

  25. We made this last night and it was a huge hit. SO EASY, and the chicken skin came out nice and crispy! Thanks for sharing!

  26. I have cooked at home maybe half a dozen times in the last decade, Okay maybe a few more but not many. This recipe will increase the number of times by 100%! It was so good, easy and the variations are endless. I had a leftover piece of chicken for lunch the next day and it was even better, if that’s possible.

  27. I made this last night and it was quick & easy but most importantly delicious. Definitely a keeper!

  28. This recipe is really easy and delicious.Everybody loves it!

  29. Can I use a combo of vegetable oil and butter instead of the olive oil?

  30. I made this last night and it was indeed easy and delicious. I love that there was no marinating required but that the chicken was still flavorful. I also added a cut up sweet potato which turned out great too! Thank you!

  31. This was so easy and delicious! My daughter who also loved this recipe will be going back to college soon and plans to make it as it is both an easy and tasty recipe! Thanks Elena! 🙂 

  32. I added in zucchini & broccoli… All of it together! Then at the end I flip it to broil for a few minutes… Mmmmm… Soooo good!

  33. Excellent. Eating it now as I type. Quick, easy and one can easily vary ingredients. Thanks for making my tummy happy tonight
