Easy Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner for Beginners
Yes, you can enjoy baked chicken for a weeknight supper, even if you are new to home cooking. Today, I am sharing a simple Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner Recipe that you can bake in the oven and have ready in 45 minutes.
Thanks to a technique called spatchcock, we’ll remove the backbone from the chicken and lay it flat on the sheet pan allowing it to cook in half the time of a whole roast chicken!
So be sure to give this a try so that you can start enjoying baked chicken any night of the week!
