Roasted Chicken Thighs and Potatoes

Don’t you love one pan dinners?  Just put everything on a sheet pan, shove it in the oven, pull it out a little later and….dinner!  I don’t know of anyone that doesn’t like roasted chicken.  I had some chicken thighs in the freezer and potatoes in the pantry.  It was pretty obvious what I was going to put in front of Sir Streusel for dinner.  I whisked up some dressing to toss the chicken and potatoes with to make it even more spectacular.  Threw some rosemary, my favorite herb, on the pan and shoved that baby in the oven. 40 minutes later, Sir Streusel was grunting and licking his fingers.  WIN!!  Join me in the love of sheet pan dinners and we all WIN!

The cast. Chicken thighs, small potatoes, fresh rosemary, garlic, dijon mustard, lemons, lemon zest, and olive oil.

Just a little note to let you know that the lemon in the front is not sick, that is the lemon I zested and will juice later for the dressing.  Just wanted to share that the lemon wasn’t suffering from a virus. 

After whisking the dressing, slicing lemons, cutting potatoes, and 40 minutes of roasting, look what Edna gave me. I love her, I really do.

This is what I shoved in front of Sir Streusel. Isn’t it beautiful? I also heard a beautiful sound….his grunting. Well done Edna, well done my lady.

So get your chicken thighs and potatoes, throw them on a sheet pan, then start grunting and licking your fingers.

Enjoy!!
