CRISPY CHICKEN THIGHS WITH SWEET POTATOES AND CHICKPEAS
I love one pan dishes that allow you to get both your protein and veggies in at once without a ton of cleanup.
It’s even better when that dish is super crispy chicken thighs, melt in your mouth sweet potato wedges, and chickpeas that have a bit of a crunch. A bold and zesty seasoning adds amazing flavor, so you don’t even realize you’re eating something healthy. It’s the best kind of dinner.
The key to this dish is getting everything nice and crispy in the pan, and then finishing in the oven so you’re left with juicy chicken and perfectly cooked potatoes. You can use skin on chicken thighs, or boneless skinless, whichever you like.
All in all, this is an easy weeknight dinner that feels like something made for the weekend.
