One Pan Roasted Garlic Chicken and Vegetables

We are so excited to be partnering with Lipton to bring you this post. The opinions are 100% my own.

One Pan Roasted Garlic Chicken is a simple recipe for a sheet pan supper that your family will thank you for. Moist and tender chicken is bursting with flavor from the sweet heat honey garlic marinade. Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes are roasted to caramelized perfection. The ultimate family dinner, this one pan recipe is one that you will be making again and again.

Roasted chicken and veggies have been a long time favorite of mine for as far back as I can remember. We always prepared it with chicken, potatoes, and carrots in a baking dish.

It's perfectly delicious, but when I am looking for a family-pleasing meal that will bring us all together (including my particular 6-year-old), I like to step outside the box and re-imagine those classic favorites.

Sweet heat chicken and roasted fall vegetables are perfect to please all of our palates and to take time away from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy an amazing meal together.

This fabulous family dinner wouldn't be complete without Lipton iced tea. Living in Florida, I grew up on this southern favorite. Iced tea is the perfect accompaniment for a meaningful meal.

I grew up in a family where no matter how busy life was, we always took the time to come together at the dinner table. Even though we all ran our separate ways all day long, each night we would sit down and enjoy dinner and what was important: each other.

I have the best memories of mealtimes with my family growing up and I am sure that has a lot to do with my passion for food. I really love to cook for my family.

Nowadays the world seems to move much faster, and life has taken on different priorities. Coming together at mealtime is ever more special.

This sweet heat chicken and roasted vegetables and a glass of Lipton iced tea is the perfect way to sit back and reevaluate our priorities. I like to sip slowly and drift back to a time when sitting at the table catching up on the day was the perfect way to end the day. Good food, great family and sweet iced tea!

One Pan Roasted Garlic Chicken and Vegetables starts with some of my favorite fall vegetables. You can use whatever your favorite is, but sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts are the perfect accompaniment for this amazing chicken. It is moist and tender, marinated in a sweet and mildly spicy sauce that will wake up your taste buds.

My family went crazy over it and I am sure yours will too.


With love from our Simple Kitchen to yours.

One Pan Roasted Garlic Chicken and Vegetables 

2 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 pound), cut into 3/4"-1" cubes
1 pound small Brussels sprouts, (if they are bigger, cut them in half)
1 medium red onion, cut into slices
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
2 tsp kosher salt, divided
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper, divided
1 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 tbsp honey
2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
2 tsp New Mexico chili powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
6 cloves garlic, minced
optional garnish: Parsley, chopped

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, for quick clean up. Place the baking sheet into the oven to preheat the pan with the oven; this will help the vegetables caramelize faster.

In a medium bowl combine 2 tablespoons olive oil with the honey, mustard, chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Whisk to combine. Add chicken and toss to coat. Set aside.

Add sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, onion, and garlic to the preheated sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Toss vegetables with a spoon, until coated well.

Clear a space for chicken breasts around the pan. Place coated chicken breasts on the baking sheet. Spoon the remaining honey mustard marinade over the chicken. Wiggle the pan until the vegetables are in a single layer.

Bake 30-35 minutes until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are fork tender. Set oven to broil high for 2 minutes or until the edges of the vegetables begin to brown.

Serve and enjoy!

DONNA'S NOTES: New Mexico Chile Powder is made by grinding New Mexico chiles. It is not the same as chili powder. It has an earthy chile flavor and is smoky, with a moderately spicy bite. It is slightly sweet with fruity undertones. You can find it with the International spices at most grocery stores. You can substitute Ancho Chile Powder if necessary.

Small Brussels sprouts can be left whole if medium or larger cut them in half.

  1. Oh my! This looks simply delicious! Any ideas for other appropriate substitution for substitution? Both the New Mexico Chile Powder or Ancho Chile Powder are not available in my small town in Northern Canada.

    1. I checked and Amazon carries it.

    2. I am subbing in Paprika or Smoked Paprika. I won't be buying a chili powder that I will only use in one recipe.

  2. This looks great! What would you suggest as a substitution for the Brussels sprouts? No one in my family likes them. I was thinking of carrots, but they're the same color as the sweet potatoes. Thank you!

  3. Would parchment paper be an alternative replacement for aluminum foil?

  4. Made this last night and it was absolutely delicious!

  5. This is a keeper! We really enjoyed this delicious dish!

      Thanks so much! we are so happy you enjoyed it!!

  6. Made this tonight, it was really REALLY good! My family of 6 devoured it (kids ranging from 1-11 years old). I couldn't find either of the two types of chili powder from the recipe, so I ended up using regular chili powder along with some red pepper flakes (added for the missing heat). It turned out SO good, I can't wait to try it with the right stuff! LOL! And man, oh, man - my first time using smoked paprika - YUM!!
