We’ve got some major comfort food up in here today!  If I sound happy about it, it’s because I am.  I’m not dreading the end of summer any longer and have my sights set on soups, chili, and all things comfort food.

You saw the Slow Cooker Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes that I posted on Monday didn’t you?

Yaaasss….major comfort food.

One of my favorite forms of comfort food is roasted chicken.  I love making it for Sunday dinner with the aforementioned mashed potatoes and it’s the perfect soul warming dinner.  The men in my house get their meat and potatoes which makes them perfectly content.

This Sheet Pan Lemon Thyme Chicken, Potatoes and Green Beans has everything a good roast chicken Sunday dinner has minus the effort.

And minus the dishes!

Normally I don’t use chicken thighs but for whatever reason I grabbed some at the store and decided to use them in a sheet pan meal instead of salmon or chicken breast.

I purchased skin-on chicken because the men in my house love it and it keeps the chicken nice and juicy.  That chicken skin created some amazing pan drippings that the potatoes and green beans were coated in and I swear it tasted just as good as the Sunday dinners that I slave over.

Suffice it to say, nobody in my house turned up their nose at dinner that night.

I’m over the moon about this meal, and love that I can customize it with whatever is in season.  Sweet potatoes, butternut squash, broccoli…you name it!

Sheet Pan Lemon Thyme Chicken, Potatoes and Green Beans is the easiest way to get your comfort food fix during the week.  With only one pan to wash!

This is how you win at dinner time.
