The way I work and the way I develop recipes is just chaos. This recipe is the perfect example. Sometimes I’ll start a recipe and I just get bored. It’s not flavorful enough or too similar to something I’ve already made. There are so many reasons I don’t follow through with every recipe I set out to make.

But it’s the recipes that I sit and stare at, then frantically develop because I’m always in a time crunch, that are my favorites.

I did just that with this sheet pan dinner. It was chaos, it involved a trip to the store, and made me stressed. But, I’m happy to say, I’m so excited to share this very easy, but oh-so flavorful recipe with you all. I just know it’s going to be one of my new go-to’s.

The beauty of a sheet pan dinner is that typically, they’re pretty darn easy to throw together. It’s why we love them so much! But what’s special about this specific sheet pan dinner? Well, cooking everything together on one pan actually allows for more flavor to penetrate everything from the chicken to the potatoes, and all the yummy crispy chickpeas.

And really, this sheet pan dinner is simple. The main ingredient is Moroccan Harissa sauce. I usually buy mine at Whole Foods, but most major grocery stores carry the jarred red sauce.

It’s made of peppers and middle eastern spices. We love it.

Here are the details

Add the chicken to a large sheet pan, I usually use a mix of similar size breasts and thighs. Rub them with olive oil and then the harissa sauce, yellow curry powder, honey, salt, and pepper.

To the same sheet pan, add the sweet potatoes, chickpeas, shallots, garlic, and a few pats of butter, plus the juice from a lemon.

Throw the pan in the oven to roast. One and done, EASY.

While the chicken and potatoes cook, I like to mix olives with a handful of fresh herbs and lemon juice. It’s a tangy fresh topping that really enhances a sheet pan dinner.

If you want to add even more flavor, chop up the roasted garlic and lemon from the sheet pan and mix them in with the olives. I usually do this and it’s very yummy, so I highly recommend!

And that’s pretty much it. When the chicken comes out of the oven, I add the feta and olives. I like to let the feta sit on the pan and really soak up the flavors of the sauces.

With the potatoes already baked on the pan, I don’t find anything else is needed, which is so nice! Very simple dinners really are the best. Especially when they’re wholesome and full of color.

Oh wait, there is one more thing. You can also add a nice drizzle of tahini, I do really LOVE that.

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 425° F.
    2. On a large, rimmed baking sheet, toss the chicken with 2 tablespoons olive oil, harissa, curry powder, honey, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the sweet potatoes, chickpeas, shallots, and garlic. Toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Arrange everything in an even layer, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Add the butter and juiced lemons.

    This recipe blew my mind!! I was reading the ingredients and thought.. hmm how will this all taste together? And the answer is DELICIOUS! Next time I will probably use bone in-skin on chicken because I ended up taking the chicken out earlier than the veg because I was worried it would over cook and I think that extra time with bone-in skin on would give the chicken extra time to get a little crispier.

    1. Hey Mary,
      Wonderful! Thanks a bunch for making this recipe and sharing your comment, I love to hear that it turned out well for you! xx

    I’ve made this twice now and each time it’s been amazing! I love the pepperochini on it! I ended up using 2 pans because I had a lot of sweet potato and I think it helped everything get nice and crispy. So impressed with how simple, delicious and healthy this is!

    1. Hey Kelli,
      Happy Monday!! I appreciate you giving this recipe a try and sharing your review, so glad to hear it turned out well! xT

    Yum, yum, yum! I, too made a few minor subs. Could not find harissa – even in major grocery stores. So I used Sambal Olek. My green olives were stuffed with cheddar cheese (oops) so I used kalamata olives. And I only had cilantro for the salad. Don’t skip the salad! It is out of this world! I did not make the lemon tahini sauce because I had leftover feta sauce from one of your other recipes. So we used that. But honestly it wasn’t needed. This is about the 4 or 5th meal of yours I have made in the last week – they have all been great! White chicken chili, spicy potato soup, BBQ salmon bowls, lemon butter chicken with orzo, cauliflower “pepperoni” pizza. And- maple banana bread with cinnamon maple butter. Your recipes are really working for me! One request – there are just 2 of us, so dinners for 4 work well. Once we get to 6-8 servings it becomes a little more challenging. Thanks!

    1. Hey Melinda,

    This is SO good, and I made a ton of substitutes! Didn’t have Harissa sauce, subbed a tablespoon of garlic-chili paste. Didn’t have sweet potatoes, subbed a small head of cauliflower. Didn’t have pepperoncini or herbs… so I didn’t use them. Basically everything else was the same as the recipe- it still is one of the best-tasting things I’ve made in a while! Can’t wait to make it with the actual recipe ingredients!

    1. Hey Mary,
