Turmeric Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

Why Use Chicken Thighs?:

The fat content in chicken thighs keeps the meat nice and tender through the baking process. While you can use chicken breasts, it can be hit or miss if your breasts turn out tender versus dry and sinuy. If you’re a big fan of breasts, go for it!

As an alternative, you can use bone-in chicken pieces. I actually use bone-in pieces more often than not, but understand bone-in is not everyone’s jam. 

How to Make Turmeric Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 

Spread the chopped vegetables on a sheet pan and drizzle with 2 to 3 tablespoons avocado oil. Sprinkle vegetables with sea salt and use your hands to toss everything together until all vegetables are coated with a thin layer of oil.

Lightly coat the chicken thighs with avocado oil, then sprinkle with ground turmeric, paprika, and sea salt. Use your hands to rub the oil and seasonings into the chicken thighs.

Place chicken thighs on the baking sheet atop the vegetables.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes, stirring the vegetables once half-way through, until veggies have reached desired done-ness and chicken is cooked through.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Use any of your favorite vegetables for roasting, such as sweet potato, cauliflower, bell pepper, etc.
  • Make recipe low-FODMAP by omitting the onion.
  • Use your favorite spices for the chicken. You can change it up with lemon pepper, dried herbs, chili powder, Cajun seasoning, onion powder, etc.
