Jelly Roll Pan Chicken Dinner

I’m including pictures with this recipe only so you’ll believe how easy it is to make and serve. A complete dinner gets cooked in one jelly roll pan and served on one platter. It can be made for one or a dozen. It doesn’t get much easier than this.

One chicken breast, skin on and bone in, per person. If they’re big, like the ones here, you can cut them in half
Olive Oil
Garlic Paste
Red Pepper Flakes
Rosemary, fresh or dried
Small Yukon Gold Potatoes, cut in half if bigger
Cherry Tomatoes

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Combine a bit of olive oil, garlic paste, rosemary, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl.


Lightly salt the chicken breasts on both sides, brush them, top and bottom, with the herbed olive oil mixture and place on the jelly roll pan, skin side up. Brush the potatoes as well and scatter them around the chicken.


Roast for 35 minutes.

Remove from oven. Place the chicken and potatoes on a plate and set aside.

Add the spinach to the hot jelly roll pan and coat with the drippings – how long depends on how much you want the spinach to wilt.


To plate: Spinach goes on the serving patter first, then the chicken breasts, and the potatoes. Scatter some cherry tomatoes around and you are done.


One jelly roll pan to cook. One platter to serve. One delicious and easy dinner.
