Hello there! My husband and I are in the midst of trying to sell our house and things have been busy for us lately.
The hardest thing is keeping the house super tidy and clean for the potential buyers that want to check out our home.
I’ll admit that I do make a mess in the kitchen when I cook and bake, especially when photographing my recipes for this blog. Luckily, sheet pan dinners keep the mess to a minimum! Yay for less dishes to wash!
This recipe is delicious, flavourful, and good-for-you too.
The chicken is marinated in a sweet and tangy balsamic vinegar-based sauce.
Balsamic vinegar is paired with rich, sweet, slightly woody flavours of pure maple syrup (I love maple syrup) along with pungent fresh garlic, a little olive oil, and salt and pepper (which enhances everything).
Simple, but it really gives the chicken great flavour!
It’s accompanied by healthy root vegetables, including red potatoes, sweet potatoes, and carrots, as well as sweet onions, that are roasted on the same baking sheet with the chicken until they are fork tender. The charred, caramelized bits on the veggies is my favourite part!
I hope you enjoy this recipe for Sheet Pan Balsamic Chicken with Potatoes and Carrots!
How do you make this easy dinner recipe?
Whisk together the balsamic marinade (not shown) in a bowl. Place the chicken in a large Ziploc (resealable) bag and add ½ of the sauce to the bag.
Marinade for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Reserve the remaining marinade (sauce) in an airtight container. Ingredients amounts and complete instructions in the recipe card down below.
In the meantime, peel and chop the carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and onions. Place in a large bowl with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to combine.
After the chicken has marinated, place the chicken on a large baking sheet and then spread the vegetables around them in a single layer. Add fresh rosemary on top.
Bake at 425 degrees for 25-35 minutes until juices run clear or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. I like using a digital instant read thermometer.
Plate and top chicken with reserved balsamic sauce (I totally forgot to do this for the photos, but it’s important). Enjoy!
