No matter how little time you have for cooking, you needn't sacrifice taste or nutrition in the name of convenience. This delicious one-dish meal, which combines succulent roasted chicken with assorted tomatoes and potatoes, requires only 45 minutes of cooking time.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees with rack in upper third. Combine the chicken, potatoes, tomatoes, and onion in a large roasting pan. Add the olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper; toss to combine. Arrange the chicken, skin-side up, over the top of the vegetables. Roast until the juices run clear and a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the thigh registers 170 degrees, about 45 minutes.

I believe Martha put this recipe out in 2007 and it has been a favorite of my family for all these years. I make it at least one a month. Sometimes I will use chicken thighs other times chicken breasts with skin and rib meat. If you use skinless chicken you need to watch it carefully so the meat does not dry out. Happy cooking!

Instant family favorite! Instant family favorite! It's very simple, only five ingredients, all easily available. toss everything in the oven. You have extra time to prepare salad while you wait. Perfect weeknight dinner.;)

I use split chicken breasts because we do not like dark meat. I reduce the temp to 425 and cook for 1 hour. I also drain the cooking liquid that accumulates in the bottom of the pan after 1/2 hour. LOVE IT and it has become a staple for my whole family including cousins

I added minced garlic and tiny crimini mushrooms, and cooked it about 10 minutes longer than suggested. It was really, really tasty!

I often throw in seasonal root vegetables like sweet potatoes, turnips or parsnips. A handful of grape tomotoes work well too.
