Our One Pan Roasted Chicken and Potatoes is so easy! Throw everything in one pan, stick it in the oven, and in about an hour you have dinner! This dish could not be any easier and minimal clean up too.  This recipe is diabetes-friendly, dairy-free, gluten-free, low-sodium.  It is also called a sheet pan recipe.  We love to think about cooking in terms of methods of cooking.

One of the best things about a one-pan or one-pot recipe is that there is such a small amount of clean-up, and this recipe is no exception! This one is super simple and requires little prep, but everything is delicious and is ready at the same time. Make extras to have the next day – when I have leftover roasted vegetables, I like to pop them back in the oven, toaster oven, or air fryer to reheat while keeping them nice and crispy.
