This roasted chicken thigh with sweet potatoes and apple recipe is perfect for fall. It cooks all in one sheet pan for easy clean up afterward. I love recipes like this as I can get back to enjoying my family quicker versus doing a ton of dishes.
Do you roast a chicken covered or uncovered?
It’s best to cook chicken covered at first so that the juices cook with the chicken and make it much juicier and flavorful. I didn’t cover this one sheet pan meal but you could if you choose to for the first 20 minutes and then uncover for the liquids to cook through and start roasting to a crispy consistency.
My kids like to help put all the components in the pan. Adding sweet potatoes and apples to this chicken thighs recipe complements it perfectly. Honestly, this Roasted Chicken Thighs recipe is one of my all-time favorite recipes! You could easily use chicken breasts instead of thighs if you like.
How long does it take Chicken Thighs to cook?
If baking chicken thights with bone in at 350-400 F, it should take about 35-45 minutes and checking occasionally after about 30 minutes to see if it’s cooked through. Use a digital thermometer if you have one to see if the chicken is cooked thoroughly at an internal temperature of 165 F
