I should also mention that this is not a sponsored post. I just really love the Ranch seasoning mix.
Now the chicken is lightly coated with brown sugar – just a single teaspoon per chicken thigh – giving you that hint of sweetness with the savory seasonings of Ranch. And when coupled with the tender roasted veggies, it is absolute perfection. And you only need one. single. pan.
Done and done.
HOW TO MAKE ONE PAN GARLIC RANCH CHICKEN AND VEGGIES
8 teaspoons brown sugar, divided
8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
16 ounces baby red potatoes, halved
16 ounces baby peeled carrots
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (1-ounce) package Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing Mix
3 cloves garlic, minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
Using your fingers, work the brown sugar, about 1 teaspoon per thigh, onto both sides of the chicken.
Place chicken, potatoes and carrots in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Ranch Seasoning and garlic; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Place into oven and roast until the chicken is completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes.* Then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until caramelized and slightly charred.
Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
