Skillet Roasted Chicken and Vegetables Recipe

Skillet Roasted Chicken and Vegetables Recipe

 

Quick, easy to throw together suppers and I are the best of friends – especially if they look like they took a whole lot more effort than I actually put into them. And if it can be made in one-pan, in this case a skillet, that makes it even better in my book! This Skillet Roasted Chicken and Vegetables falls into that category.

I had been dragging my feet all afternoon in deciding what to fix for supper. Little Buddy and I sat down for the afternoon after school to watch Good Luck Charlie, read issues of Lego Club, talk about the latest airsoft gear he’d heard about, while I thumbed through Glamour reading all about Victoria Beckham’s fashion tips.

What can I say? It is absolutely amazing all the things I can accomplish in one day.

Time somehow got away from me in all of my productivity and the afternoon quickly disappeared. That’s about when I decided that chicken and vegetables sounded like just the thing to fix. The only problem was, I didn’t want to make multiple dishes that I’d then just have to clean.

So, I decided to rough chop celery, onions, carrots, and garlic and toss them into a big skillet with some olive oil and then top them with boneless, skinless chicken thighs. You could just as easily use chicken breasts in this recipe, but with all the flavor that chicken thighs have in them, I’m not exactly sure why I would ever unless I just didn’t have chicken thighs on hand.

We’re a chicken thigh family, for sure.

In less than 30 minutes, supper was ready and no one would have ever guessed how lazy I’d been all afternoon.

I did learn a ton about Lego Club and Victoria Beckham did have a pretty cool list of fall essentials.

So, all in all, I think it was a rather productive afternoon after all.

Here’s the recipe for my Skillet Roasted Chicken and Vegetables.

  1. Looks like a great recipe – delicious and thrown together with minimal fuss and not much washing up… What’s not to love? 🙂

  2. This is the perfect kind of week night meal we all need right now! And that sounds like a totally acceptable afternoon 😉

  3. One-pan meals are definately the way to make up for lost time! And the chicken thighs cook up fast and tender. Great dish!

  4. We are chicken thigh lovers as well. This sounds like the perfect dinner! (Thanks for the link as well!)

  5. That sounds like the *perfect* afternoon. I would love to hear those fall fashion tips! I just bought some dark polish for my toesies! 🙂

    I love that you can whip up a homey and delicious meal spur of the moment. When I don’t plan, it’s usually bean & cheese quesadillas. 😉

  6. This sounds like a great, quick meal! Pinning this for future reference!

  7. Great picture! Great recipe! One dish to clean….my hubby says great, great, great! Thanks…. for a delicious sounding chicken dish.

  8. Perfect for supper tonight! We love thighs.

  9. Sounds delicious! Could I use breasts instead? I’m not much of a thigh person.

  10. I had a friend who sort of made this only she added parsnips along with everything you added and she would brown the thighs quickly on top of the stove remove them then deglaze the pan with a little white wine, add veggies, thighs and cover and finish in oven. Oh my gosh it was awesome, I had forgotten about it till I read yours, she passed away 12yrs. ago. Thank you for bringing us this recipe.

  11. Super versatile skillet dish. Awesome!

  12. I have tried many of your recipes and I love quick healthy meals like this. Excuse my ignorance about one pot cooking, but are you sautéing the veggies or browning the chicken before putting it in the oven or are you just putting everything in the oven raw? Thanks.

  13. I must say that I’m truly enjoying all of the recipes my family is enjoying them to.

  14. Hi can you add small potatoes to it?

  15. Tasted great but the veg definitely take longer that 25 mins. Would brown chicken first though,
