Mediterranean Sheet Pan Roasted Chicken Thighs with Sweet Potato Onions Peppers and Olives
Want a healthy one sheet pan dinner ready in under 1 hour? Then I have the perfect recipe for you! This dish is filled with flavour and bursting with healthy goodness. I love making one pan oven roasted chicken dishes. Crispy chicken skin and charred vegetables, low carb and gluten free deliciousness. Perfect for Friday night, don’t you think? The best part about it? Easy cleanup...my dishwasher broke a few days ago and the engineer can only come ot next Tuesday! Arghhh... LOL. Throw everything on the sheet pan, crank up the oven and let it roast. If you want to buy ready cut vegetables and make it even easier...I won't tell ;)
