Harissa and yellow curry seasoned chicken roasted with sweet potatoes, shallots, garlic, chickpeas, lemon, and butter. Finish the meal off with crumbled feta cheese and tangy, salty, olives. Then you must do warm naan on the side! So simple and delicious.

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.

    I first discovered half baked harvest when I bought a cook book. I had no idea the website existed. This is my favorite recipe I have tried from Tieghan yet (and that’s saying a lot because they have all been winners) super simple meal, but it would be great to impress guests or family. I added less sweet potato and less of the olive mixture, but I think that’s due to my pan being smaller. I didn’t want to overcrowd it and it turned out perfectly!

    1. Hi Molly,
      Wonderful!! Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your feedback, so glad to hear that it was a hit! xx

    We really enjoyed this. Lots of leftovers for a couple more suppers. Will definitely make this again although there are so many of your recipes I want to try. My daughter got me hooked on your recipes. Thank you

    1. Hey Mary,
      I appreciate you making this recipe and sharing your feedback, so glad to hear it was delish! Have a great weekend! xT

  7. Wow Tieghan! I don’t typically cook with these flavors and as I was making the dish I was anticipating how they were all going to come together and oh my goodness what an explosion of flavors – this is by far one of my absolute favorites of yours and I have many! Our taste buds are still very happy long after clean up and leftovers put away for another meal this week!

    My grocery store didn’t have Harissa and I didn’t have time to try another store so I used my Thai Red Curry paste and crossed my fingers. There is not one thing I like about olives so I substituted roasted red peppers and did everything else you listed and can I tell you how delicious it was?? The red pepper added a nice color to the herbs and a nice sweetness to the salty feta. My husband is disappointed I didn’t give the olives a try so next time I’ll do both! Everything about this dish was outstanding!!!

    1. Hey Donna,
      Happy Wednesday! I appreciate you making this recipe and sharing your comment, so glad to hear it was a winner! Thanks so much for your kind message and sharing what worked well for you! xx

  8. I would seriously give this an 11 out of 10 —this is going to be one of our most loved of your dishes and I’ve made a ton of them. The chicken was superb —Harissa AND Curry, who knew? But the tender sweet potatoes soaking up the butter, oil and later the briny lemony olive goodness—and making the Lemon Tahini was icing on the cake. No leftovers this time!

    1. Hi Lucy,

    I made this last night and it was delicious! My grocery store didn’t have lemon tahini, so I tried plain sesame tahini…. which I wasn’t a huge fan of. The instructions on the lemon were a little confusing. Besides that, recipe was amazing, husband and baby ate it up!

    1. Hey Natalie,
      Awesome!! Thanks so much for giving this dish a try and your comment, I love to hear it was a hit! 😊
