this simple bbq chicken meal cooks all together on one sheet pan and requires just 7 ingredients and 10 minutes of active cooking time making it a perfect easy weeknight meal for the whole family!


  • 1 1/22 pounds baby potatoes, washed & halved
  • 34 skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1/21 pound asparagus, washed and sliced to remove the harder lower stem
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning (more or less to your liking) *see note
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • Favorite barbecue sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, toss potatoes with olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) and cajun seasoning (if your cajun or other seasoning does not have salt, I recommend adding salt & pepper as desired) until the potatoes are well coated.
  3. Layer potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove sheet pan and add chicken skin side up.  Drizzle with a little olive oil, salt & pepper to taste.  Bake for another 15 minutes.
  5. Remove baking sheet and add asparagus.  Drizzle with a little olive oil, salt & pepper to taste.  Spoon barbecue sauce (~1-2 tbsp.) over the chicken, making sure to coat well.  Bake for another 10-15 minutes (or until the thickest part of the chicken thighs registers 165°F on a thermometer).
  6. Serve immediately (with additional bbq sauce as desired!)


  • * If you’re not a fan of cajun seasoning, you can use paprika, chili powder or just plain salt & pepper!
