Easy One-pan Chicken and Vegetables FAQs
Can I use different veggies?
Yes, this recipe is totally customizable! If you don’t have access to asparagus and fennel you could easily swap these out for other spring veggies like broccoli, broccolini, carrots, zucchini, or even leeks would be really nice. This recipe is seasonally adaptable, so you can use any vegetables that are available. As with the recommendations for the asparagus and fennel here, I would add the veggies to your baking dish/pan in the last 10-15 minutes of cooking so that they retain some bite/crisp.
What can I pair with this Crispy Roasted Chicken and Spring Veggies?
Does this dish store well?
I don’t recommend freezing this dish but leftovers keep well in the fridge for 2-3 days. I recommend reheating the chicken in the oven and broiling for a few minutes to ensure your chicken skin is nice and crispy before eating again.
Can I make this with Boneless Chicken Thighs?
Alter the cooking time. Boneless chicken thighs require a shorter cooking time. Also, keep in mind that the size of the chicken thighs will affect the cooking time. Smaller sizes will need less time. Check periodically…Chicken is ready when the internal temperature is 165°F and juices run clear. I typically use chicken thighs with skin-on as it really helps to seal in the moisture and retain the flavor to get that desired juiciness on the inside and crispiness on the outside.
