With this sheet pan chicken, you’ll want to be mindful of the size and thickness of your chicken. I used thin cut chicken breasts so they cooked quickly – but be sure to adjust your own cooking times depending on the chicken you’re working with.
If you have thick cut chicken, you may want to cook this for longer. You can use a meat thermometer to make sure your chicken is cooked thoroughly.
3 steps for the best sheet pan chicken and veggies
Here are those 3 steps to ensure you have the best sheep pan chicken, and that it isn’t dry.
Step 1: Brine the chicken. By soaking the chicken at least 4 hours before baking, you will ensure the chicken stays moist and doesn’t come out dry. (I like to make my brine out of a 1/2 gallon of water, lemon slices, orange slices, and rosemary leaves.)
Brining the chicken will ensure to help keep the flavor and moisture.
Step 2: Cook the chicken at the proper temperature. Make sure you bake at 375 and coat the chicken with an olive oil based cooking spray before seasoning. This also helps to keep the chicken moist.
Step 3: Time the chicken perfectly. Depending on the thickness and cut of chicken, you may need to adjust your time accordingly. At 375, you should bake the chicken for 20-25 minutes, or until an internal temperature is 165 F.
Anything less will not be fully cooked, and anything more could be overdone and dry the chicken.
