It is officially Fall and all the fantastic delicious flavors are ushering in to greet us. Cinnamon and nutmeg have taken over desserts, Rosemary and sage are the spices of the holiday season and sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts are taking over on the vegetable front. One thing that remains constant is the chicken, a flavor for all seasons and a perfect hero for our dish.

The chicken I am using in this dish is Foster Farms Simply Raised and I have to say I am pretty excited about it. Born and raised in California, Foster Farms has been the chicken I grew up eating. My mom has always been a huge supporter of local farmers, so each weekend we would go grocery shopping together to local markets who would bring fresh products in from their farms directly. I remember how she would comment that it was so fresh and it was more flavorful because of how close we were to the farm. I firmly believe that eating locally is not only a way to support your local farmers and the local economy, but I think having something in your meal that was picked or prepared less than 48 hours before is a sure fire way to have a more flavorful meal.

That is what Foster Farms strives for with their Foster Farms Simply Raised (without antibiotics). As a Californian I know that the chicken we are eating was raised in California and was given no antibiotics, fed an all vegetarian diet, delivered to the store in 48 hours or less and while I know this doesn’t impact the taste, I like knowing they’ve been around for over 75 years and the founding family’s grandson is in charge of the company.

So let’s get started on the meal! It is only 7 ingredients, but it won’t taste like it!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season both sides of the chicken thighs with kosher salt and black pepper to taste. I used about ½ teaspoon of each. Add the rosemary to the side without the skin. Made in one skillet, this One Pot Roasted Rosemary Chicken with Fall Vegetables is full of flavor even though it only has seven ingredients, TOTAL.

This is the perfect meal to make on a school night when you’re looking for something healthy, hearty and well balanced.Put the chicken skin side down in the skillet and cook on medium high for 5-7 minutes until a nice golden brown crust is formed. Turn the chicken and cook for an additional five minutes. Made in one skillet, this One Pot Roasted Rosemary Chicken with Fall Vegetables is full of flavor even though it only has seven ingredients, TOTAL.

Remove the chicken from the pan and add the sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts and garlic. Season to taste with more salt and pepper (I used about ¼ teaspoon of each). Mix well using the rendered fat in the pan to coat the vegetables.

  1. Hi! I made this today and it was delicious.

    Question…and apologies if you answered this already, can’t find it in the comments. What size skillet do you use? I used a 12” one and everything was a bit crowded.

    Thanks!

    1. So glad you liked it!
      I use a 9″ skillet. I only used 4 chicken thighs though, so if you use more and they are jumbo that could have affected the crowding. Happy it turned out anyways though!

  2. Seriously, why do people complete a review saying the recipe looks good without even trying it???? Of course it looks good! And it IS good! Just wish my cast iron skillet were big enough to get all those veggies and 6 (or even 8) thighs in. I guess I could transfer part of it a baking dish?

  3. This is a new favorite for sure. Made it for the second time tonight, and this time added a little bacon. It’s a fantastic recipe!

  4. Hi Sabrina, this sounds amazing! If we have only chicken breasts, how long to cook them in the dish? Can’t wait to make this! Four stars until I taste it!

    1. Are the breasts bone in and skin on? If so I would say 30-35 minutes. If its boneless skinless you’re fighting a losing battle because the potatoes will need longer than the chicken. With boneless skinless I would brown the chicken on both sides. Put the veggies in, put them in the oven for 15-20 minutes, then add in the almost raw chicken and let it finish for another 15 minutes. Hope that helps!

  5. Yum, I made something so similar the other day, but the kids didn’t like the chicken thighs. Will have to try with chicken breast.

  6. Wow, what a great dish! My family loves chicken and brussel sprouts. They’d go crazy for this one.

    1. Yikes, I don’t know how this comment slipped into my spam folder! Sorry about the delay, I would definitely say you can sub tofu, I used to make baked tofu for my clients all the time, just use extra firm.

  7. Oh! This chicken looks so good! And the fall veggies and the one-pot scenario sound perfect!

  8. This meal looks fantastic.i love the breading on the chicken..my granny used to cook her’s like that. it was always one of my favs/

  9. The chicken looks so packed with flavor and so do the veggies. I’d love to try this recipe, it seems easy.

  10. Oh wow, that looks so tasty. I like finding new chicken recipes to try. I am saving this recipe for later.

  11. What a great recipe looks delicious. I am finding a recipe for our family dinner tomorrow and i’m so glad that you’ve post it. I need to bookmark this for the procedure and ingredients. Thank you for sharing

  12. I am always looking for new chicken recipes. This looks delicious and easy to make. I will have to get the ingredients so i can make this recipe on the weekend.

  13. I love one pot meals. This looks so delicious and easy to make. My kids will love it they are huge fans of sweet potatoes.

  14. I so desperately need to invest in a cast iron skillet. I see so many delicious recipes made in them and I feel like I’m missing out. If I were to make anything that started on the stove and then ended up in the oven, I’d have to transfer the food from a pan to a dish and doing that loses a lot of flavor.

    1. I use my cast iron skillet more than my 14 piece All Clad set! It is like an extension of me in the kitchen, you should totally get one!

  15. Oh man, we could get used to more meals like this. It sounds pretty stress-free to prepare and I’d love the extra veggies.

  16. What a fabulous recipe. I love one-pot meals… Plus the addition of brussel sprouts is awesome. I love it and will be trying this. Thanks so much for sharing.

  17. I love a one pot dinner, especially the kind the kids will actually eat! If I add the rosemary they might think I got it take out from a fancy restaurant! Thanks for a great new addition to my weekday line up!

  18. Oh boy this looks so delicious! I haven’t ever had rosemary chicken before, looks interesting but yet oh so good!

  19. Chicken thighs are my favorite. They have so much flavor. I love that you chose these fall vegetables to go with the rosemary. Yummy!

  20. this looks amazing, i love chicken but I am looking for new recipes all the time and this one is one I will add to my list

  21. This looks outstanding! There are so many chicken recipe and we have been needing something new. I can’t wait to try this.

  22. One pot meals are great! I bet I could transition this into the crock pot for even more convenience! I can’t wait for Fall!

      1. To make it in the crockpot what changes should I make (btw I don’t like brussel sprouts so I’m using carrots instead), like should I add a broth…

        1. No I wouldn’t add broth. You may want to check out my “Crisp and Juicy Slow Cooker Chicken” I would put the chicken in, fat side up, add salt, pepper and rosemary. I would add the veggies in but toss them in a bit of oil so they don’t dry out in the slow cooker before the chicken does its thing. To really add a sort of wow factor, I would put the veggies in a broiler/toaster oven for just a few minutes to crisp them up after the chicken is done. If you take them straight out of the slow cooker they’ll be super soft.

          You could also add the veggies halfway through, they are so small they’ll cook too quickly. All just depends on how hands on you want to be.

          Thighs, 5 hours on low to be quick, I normally do 7 on low and they are fall apart tender.

  23. What a delicious looking dish. I would have never thought to add brussel sprouts to my meals but I love them so much, I’m going to start adding them. I’d love to try your recipe, I use Rosemary in most of my chicken dishes and we love it.

  24. Wow! I have all the ingredients to make this, and I think I will! What an awesome autumnal meal 🙂
