Sheet Pan Meal Recipe

Sheet Pan Whole-Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

INGREDIENTS

  • one 4 to 5 pound whole roasting chicken
  • 2 pounds fingerling potatoes (new potatoes, sweet potatoes, or other favorite roasting potatoes may be substituted; quartering or halving as necessary)
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon paprika, or to taste (poultry seasoning or your favorite chicken seasoning may be substituted)
  • fresh parsley, optional for garnishing potatoes

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425ΒΊF convection, line a large baking sheet with foil; set aside. If you don’t have a convection oven, bake at 425F regular, noting that the baking time will need to increase (see step 6. below).
  2. Remove the chicken giblets, rinse the chicken inside and out, pat dry, and place on one side of the baking sheet, breast side up; I don’t truss it.
  3. Add the potatoes to the other side of the baking sheet.
  4. Very liberally season the chicken with salt and pepper, more moderately season the potatoes with salt and pepper, and evenly drizzle about 2 tablespoons olive oil over the chicken and 2 tablespoons olive oil over the potatoes; toss the potatoes with your hands to coat evenly.

Notes

Report this ad

  • The chicken fingers I purchased were raw and required cooking before I could use them in the sliders. It’s best to precook them if they are raw so that you can be sure the chicken has been fully cooked through.
  • If you purchase already cooked fingers that need only to be warmed, then skip step 2.
