Just last week I shared with y’all 14 – One Pan Meals to Save You Time and Clean-Up, so of course I’m gonna start adding to it! One pan meals are seriously the best. Who has the time to slave in the kitchen prepping meals and then cleaning up all the dishes that it requires to make those dishes?! There is a time and place for meals that call for a lot of pots and pans, but weeknights and busy weekends aren’t those times. That is why I am pulling out all the stops and making as many of these one pan meals I can, so that I will eventually end up with at least a months worth!
Wouldn’t it be great during the holidays to have all these one pan meals to pull from when we are already busy with parties, gift wrapping, cookie making, etc., etc. Or during the summer when nobody wants to cut their fun short to cook and clean up.
The only clean up is a knife, peeler, cutting board, and your sheet pan! If you foil up that bad boy every-which-a-way you could probably get by with not even washing your sheet pan. Hey, that’s up to you! 😉
Sheet Pan Cajun Chicken
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 lbs potatoes peeled and diced
- 4 tbsp olive oil divided
- 2 bell peppers diced
- 1/2 onion diced
- 2 1/2 tsp paprika
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil and set aside.
Mix together all of the seasonings and set aside.
Drizzle olive oil on each chicken breast, about 1/2 tablespoon per, and rub it on each side.
Season each chicken breast per side with the seasoning, using just enough to cover, making sure to rub it all over.
Place the chicken on the sheet pan.
Place the diced potatoes, peppers, and onion in a large bowl.
Coat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle the rest of the seasoning in the bowl. Toss to coat.
Place the potatoes around the chicken on the sheet pan, and set the onion and peppers aside.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Check the chicken, if the chicken is done, place the chicken on a plate, and arrange the peppers and onion with the potatoes.
Place in the oven and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender. You can turn the oven up to broil in the last few minutes for some charring.
If the chicken was not done at the 30 minute mark, continue baking along with the peppers and onions.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
