Sheet Pan Plum Roasted Chicken Recipe

I love sheet pan recipes. They tend to be quick and easy to put together and once out of the oven, the roasted meat and vegetables are so juicy and flavorful.

This sheet pan recipe is a beautiful blend of sweet plums and soft red onions with roasted chicken. Everyone will be asking for seconds and licking up their plates…well at least that’s what happens at my dinner table!

To make this a complete one pan meal, toss in some Brussels sprouts or other vegetables and your dinner is ready in 45 minutes or less.

One tip for this recipe is not to rush the marinate time. For best results, marinate the chicken the night before.
