One of our favorite weeknight dinners, roasted meats and sheet pan vegetables can relieve the stress of a busy day! Once the chicken is in the oven, just toss your favorite veggies with a light coating of oil or ghee, dust them lightly with salt, and place them on a parchment-lined sheet pan to bake alongside the chicken thighs until tender.

These chicken thighs also pair nicely with a classic Caesar salad!
