Budget friendly and flavorful dish right here- Roasted Chicken Thighs with Potatoes, Peppers and Onions! Oh and a bonus, you are only using one pan to create a whole meal! There are a couple things you can generally count on is that chicken thighs are not going to break the bank at the grocery store, they stay juicy and are full of flavor! I got approx 2.5 lbs of chicken for under $4!!
Toss in the wonderful combination of sweet bell peppers and onions plus the wonderful potato and yum! There is something about the aroma of pepper and onions cooking isn’t there? I don’t know what it is about the smell but I think they should bottle it! The whole house smells amazing and reminds me of Italian festivals!
In this recipe I bought skin on chicken thighs and removed the skin myself. Why did I buy skin on and remove it? Well its cheaper and its takes just a couple minutes. I generally leave the skin on for flavor but I figured lets remove a little fat from the recipe.
2 – 2 1/2 lbs chicken thighs, skin removed
1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 red pepper sliced
2 russet potatoes, diced
olive oil (I used Carter and Cavero Tuscan Herb)
garlic and herb seasoning (I use Garlic Garlic from Tastefully Simple)
salt and pepper
Oven at 375 degrees.
This is super easy! Once you’ve removed the skin from the chicken place it on a lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, garlic and herb seasoning, salt and pepper.
Toss the potatoes, peppers and onions. Again drizzle with olive oil, garlic and herb seasoning, salt and pepper.
Cook for approx 45 minutes, until the chicken is golden and cooked through, juices running clear. I served mine with a very simple salad.

I made this for dinner with a few variations. I had whole mushrooms on hand so I added to vegetables. I used red and yellow bell peppers and added rosemary. It was delicious.
Donna that is so awesome to hear!!! That’s what I love about cooking, you utilize what you have and what you like. So happy you enjoyed this dish! Have a great night!
My mother used to make this, and she called it “Chicken in the Oven”. She would use whatever chicken was on sale, usually thighs, but sometimes she’d put some drumsticks in there. Its so simple, yet tasted like she put hours of work into it.
You mentioned that the smell reminds you of the smells of an Italian Festival. My mom got her recipe from her mother, who is from Italy 🙂 To me, it smells like Sunday Dinner. 🙂
Thank you for sharing that story with me! There is nothing better then recipes that’s are passed down. And the aromas from the kitchen that remind us of those loved ones… It’s a special thing!
All I had was mini peppers and mini potatoes and chicken thighs so when I popped them into Google your site came up! I had the other ingredients so I’m trying this tonight because it looks delicious!
Oh that makes me very happy!!! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! It’s an easy one with great flavor
I just started making this out of the blue because my mother used to make it. I have done it several times with Italian sausage. I added carrots for a little extra nutrition. I put in red, orange, and green peppers. I had it in the oven at 400 deg and thought I would google it to see at what temperature and time. It has now been in the oven for 50 minutes and about to take it out. Smells good!
I love the addition of carrots! Hope you enjoyed it.
