Cat Cora's Fall Sheet Pan Chicken - Home & Family


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, marinate the chicken with 2 tablespoons olive oil, lemon, vinegar, garlic, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper.
  3. Baste the chicken well, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. (You can do this step for longer, about 4-6 hours.).
  4. While the chicken is marinating, chop vegetables. Place sweet potato, Brussels sprouts, apples, fennel and onions on a baking sheet.
  5. Remove chicken from the marinade and throw the marinade away. In a large saute pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil on high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and sear on both sides, about 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  6. Layer the chicken into the vegetables on the sheet tray and place in the oven, roast in a preheated oven until chicken and vegetables are golden brown, about 30 - 35 minutes. The chicken should read 165 with a thermometer in the center of the thighs.
  7. Remove and sprinkle parsley for garnish and serve.
