Simple Baked Chicken with Vegetables


I like baked chicken with vegetables because it’s a tasty and reliable dish, and it’s great when you’re too tired to cook and just want something simple.  You can supplement it with rice and stir-fried zucchini if desired.

Simple Baked Chicken

  • Chicken drumsticks and/or thighs with bone in
  • Potatoes of your choice
  • Carrots
  • 1 onion
  • Salt, pepper, and basil or thyme to taste
  • Olive oil to taste
  • 1/2 lemon (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and basil or thyme over each piece of meat.  Rub in the spices.
  3. Arrange drumsticks and/or thighs in a large baking pan.
  4. Squeeze lemon juice (if using) over them.
  5. Chop potatoes roughly and slice carrots and onion.
  6. Scatter vegetables around the meat and sprinkle vegetables with salt and pepper.  Drizzle with olive oil.
  7. Bake for 40-50 minutes.  Halfway through, open the oven and stir the vegetables.
