Here’s an easy sheet pan recipe to put on repeat in your house! This Sheet Pan Herb Chicken and Spring Vegetables is a vibrant, family-friendly spring dinner that’s healthy too! If you’ve never tried roasted radishes before, now is your chance!
How to Make Sheet Pan Herb Chicken with Spring Vegetables – step by step
To prepare this sheet pan chicken meal, follow these easy steps:
- Make the marinade. Lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and thyme are all you need to make this super flavorful marinade. Set aside half of the marinade for the veggies. Marinate the chicken for at least 15 minutes or up to 2 hours.
- Chop the veggies. Cut the potatoes, radishes, and carrots. Trim the ends from the asparagus.
- Roast the chicken, potatoes, and radishes. Spread the herb chicken, potatoes, and radishes out on a baking sheet, add a pinch of salt and pepper and toss with a couple tablespoons of marinade. Feel free to keep the veggies grouped together or toss them all together. Roast for 15 minutes.
- Add on the asparagus and carrots. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and make room for the asparagus and carrots. Toss with salt and pepper and a couple tablespoons of marinade. Return the sheet pan to the oven for 15-20 minutes. Adding the asparagus and carrots for the remaining cooking time will yield slightly caramelized veggies that still have a bit of crunch to them. If you like your asparagus and carrots to be very tender and caramelized, go ahead and roast them along with the chicken and other veggies in the previous step. It’s absolutely personal preference!
