Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Serves 4


  • 1½ lbs. chicken breasts (about 4 breasts), cut into pieces
  • 1 lb. baby potatoes, bite-sized
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 small red onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. Italian blend seasoning
  • 1½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 2 Tb. butter (optional)


  • 1

    Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • 2

    Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, or instead, thoroughly coat it in olive oil or non-stick cooking spray.
  • 3

    In a small bowl, combine paprika, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper with melted butter. Set aside.
  • 4

    Wash and poke holes into potatoes. Cut larger ones in half and place them into a large bowl.
  • 5

    Slice zucchini and set aside.
  • 6

    Cut onion into wedges, carrots into sticks and mince garlic. Add the potatoes.
  • 7

    In a medium bowl, coat both sides of chicken with olive oil. Sprinkle with half of the seasoning mix and combine.
  • 8

    Use remaining seasoning on vegetables, including zucchini.
  • 9

    Place all ingredients with the exception of zucchini on the baking sheet.
  • 10

    Bake for 15 minutes. Turn all ingredients over. Add zucchini to the baking sheet and return to the oven.
  • 11

    Bake an additional 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Total baking time is dependent on the size of ingredient pieces. Cut items to nearly the same size for even baking.
