One Pan Honey Garlic Chicken and Vegetables
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 3 cloves garlic
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- ½ teaspoon dried basil
- ½ teaspoon dried thyme
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts ((chicken thighs work well too))
- 1 lb. red potatoes (cut into 1-inch pieces (about 3 medium red potatoes, or 3 cups cubed))
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- 12 ounces frozen green beans (or 16 ounces broccoli florets)
- 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves (for garnish)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a rimmed baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. (You can cover your pan with foil and spray that for easy cleanup.)
- In a small bowl, whisk together the glaze ingredients and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
- Place potatoes in a single layer onto half of the prepared baking pan. Drizzle with 1 Tablespoon olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Add chicken in a single layer on the other half of the baking pan and season with salt and pepper. Spoon half of the glaze mixture over the top of the chicken. (Do not contaminate the remaining glaze by touching the raw chicken and putting the spoon back in the glaze - divide it into two bowls if needed.)
- Place pan into the oven and roast for 20 minutes. Take out of the oven and add green beans (and/or other vegetables) and remaining glaze with the potatoes. Mix to combine. Move the rack in the oven up to the top level. Return tray to oven and broil about 5-10 minutes, or until everything is caramelized and slightly charred, the potatoes are fork-tender, and the chicken reaches 165 degrees. Serve garnished with parsley.

Erin Henry says
So glad to hear your family loved it, Julia! Ours does too! Simple, yet delicious!
Chicken nice and tender!! Good flavor in glaze...best served with the extra glaze...chicken had such a beautiful brown to it....used frozen green beans wo der if fresh would work..I love green beans!!
I'm so glad you enjoyed the recipe, Kris! I think fresh green bean would work! However, I've never tried it. Let me know 🙂
My husband and I just got done with this and oh my gosh, it was wonderful. It was everything I love. Flavorful, easy, pretty to look at, and the cleanup was next to nothing. I was so proud of it! I was afraid it would all taste the same, but it didn't at all.
I mixed the glaze in a Ziploc baggie for one less dish to wash. I know, lazy--but it worked out great for drizzling on the chicken with no risk of cross contamination. I realized after I had begun that I was out of oregano AND thyme, I substituted with Italian seasoning and it was still so tasty, I don't think it hurt a bit.
Do you think it would work to mix up bigger batch of glaze, then separate it into smaller bags and freeze it? I'm *no* chef, so I don't know if that would alter the chemistry or anything. It's so versatile though, it would be awesome to have that part done and then change up the meats and veggies. Anyways, I loved this recipe and it will definitely be a regular in our home from now on. Thank you!!
I LOVE to hear this, Leah. I'm so glad you both enjoyed the recipe and that clean up was a breeze! I love your hack about the plastic bag...maybe I'll had it to the tips so that others can use it too!
As for mixing up the glaze and freezing it, I totally think that can be done. I'm all for making things simple.
