As much as I love making more in depth dishes with different flavors, and more detailed processes.. sometimes I like to throw everything in a pan, bake it in the oven, and call it a day.
Which is why I make this baked balsamic chicken and veggies ALL the time.

Ingredients for Baked Balsamic Chicken Dinner:
If you don’t have those veggies on hand, I’ve listed substitutions below. Anything works well in this dish!
How to make sheet pan chicken and potatoes:
To make this sheet pan chicken and potatoes meal, whisk together your marinade. Add everything in a bowl and toss to combine.
Something to note – I like to butterfly and pound my chicken breasts so that they’re all the same size. This ensures that your chicken breasts all cook evenly!
Prepare a parchment lined baking sheet (parchment is MUCH better than foil for meals like this.) Using the parchment paper also makes for super easy clean up. You can just toss it in the trash when you’re done and give your baking sheet a quick wash in case any juices get on it!
Lay your chicken and veggies out on the baking dish evenly.
Bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes + you’re good to go!
Substitutions for this sheet pan balsamic chicken recipe:
This meal is super versatile. You can substitute different veggies, spices, meat, etc. Here are a few versions we have tried.
- Keto: Sub in low carb veggies for potatoes!
- Herbs: If you don’t like rosemary, you can sub basil or thyme. Either one would be delicious in this dish!
- Chicken/Meat: If you don’t have chicken breasts, you can use chicken thighs or even chicken tenders. I bet that salmon would work well in this meal as well, but you would need to cook the veggies ahead of time because salmon cooks so quickly.
- Veggies: You can sub the green beans/carrots with brussels sprouts, broccoli or butternut squash
- Potatoes: You can sub fingerling potatoes for russet potatoes cut in roughly the same size
This recipe would also be great for meal prepping! You can double it to get a bunch of meals prepped for the week!
Is it safe to use the same marinade from the chicken on the veggies?
I’ve had a few people ask if this is safe to do because you’re technically cross contaminating the vegetables with raw chicken marinade. If you were cooking the vegetables at a different temperature than the chicken, this would be a BIG no.
Since everything is going in the oven at once and cooking for the same time – you’re in the clear! However, if this idea still bothers you, simply divide the marinade up before adding it to the chicken!
We hope you love this balsamic chicken dinner as much as we do! It’s the perfect healthy meal any time of year. Simple, delicious and hearty!
