Jan 4 – Baked Chicken Thighs and Roasted Sweet Potatoes

One pan dinners are excellent. Very little clean-up, Throw it in the oven and forget it. This is the first of my lighter dishes for the year. Yes I did resist on the cheese and didn’t add any.



  • Chicken Thighs
  • Olive Oil
  • Seasoning Salt
  • Pepper
  • Kosher Salt
  • 1-2 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1/2 cup  onion
  • 3-4 Button Mushrooms (optional)

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees

Place a piece of aluminum foil onto a baking sheet. This is only for easier clean-up.  Lay your chicken thighs onto the baking sheet. Lightly sprinkle or brush olive oil onto the chicken and season.  I season generously with seasoning salt and pepper.  Chicken thighs are inexpensive, usually sold in packages of 6-8.  Don’t fear the bone-in chicken, the bone-in chicken is delicious with lots of flavor.  If you would like you can easily peel the skin off of these prior to cooking.


Place the chicken into the oven for 12 minutes to start the cooking process.  While this is cooking peel and cube your sweet potato and rough chop your onion and Mushrooms.   Place the sweet potato into a bowl and lightly sprinkle with olive oil and kosher salt. Toss till covered. After cooking for 12 minutes pull the baking sheet out of the oven and put the sweet potatoes/onions/ mushrooms onto the baking sheet around the chicken.


Cook for an additional 15-20 minutes till your chicken is done and your sweet potatoes are tender.


Enjoy your meal and allow for your husband to do the dishes. Love you John!

xoxo, Bryn
