Cheap, Easy and Delicious Oven Roasted Chicken Recipe

Looking for a chicken recipe that is easy, one pot (hello, easy cleanup!) and delicious all at once? You’ve found it! With just a few simple ingredients, you can whip up this scrumptious meal with minimal effort or your part. The chicken is moist and tender and the vegetables caramelize in the juices. Bonus: The whole meal costs under $10 for 4!


Bone-in Chicken (I used leg quarters but this can be expanded to your favorite type of chicken- even a whole bird- just adjust the cooking time as necessary)

Carrots (I used one bag baby carrots)

Brussels Sprouts (I used one bag frozen)

Poultry Seasoning, Thyme, Salt

Olive Oil or Clarified Butter (1 Tbsp melted)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Season both sides of the chicken with poultry seasoning and place on a sheet tray or baking dish.

Arrange vegetables around chicken and pour olive oil or butter over vegetables then season with thyme.

Bake until chicken is golden brown and veggies are tender. Temperature should register 165 degrees, approximately one hour for leg quarters.

      Oh, my goodness- You have to try roasted brussels sprouts right this minute! They are my absolute 100% favorite veggie of all time! I used to hate them until I tried them roasted! 🙂

    Burssels Sprouts and carrots are two of my favorite vegetables. Roasting them along with the chicken will add to their overall flavor..We do eat a lot of chicken here in Mexico so we will try a version of this soon. Most of our cooking in the house is done before 6 a.m. After that it is all outdoors. We do have a Mexican kitchen set up out doors so it just takes a little adjusting to cook more items. We will be using these three items together soon. Thanks for sharing.
