Here are the ingredients needed for this chicken sheet pan dinner!.

  • Chicken – You will want to use any boneless chicken. Trim your chicken so you remove any fat from the meat.
  • Potatoes – Reach for Yukon, russets, or even new potatoes. Dice them up into even cubes. The goal is to have even sized potatoes.
  • Green Beans – For my other vegetable I did green beans. You are welcome to swap it out with broccoli or other hearty vegetable.
  • Garlic – You will want minced garlic for this. Freshly mince or use jarred garlic.
  • Olive Oil – Or any other style of oil works.
  • Herbs and Spices – Salt, pepper, thyme, oregano, and parsley are what I used for this recipe.
  • Butter – I recommend using real butter not margarine. The butter adds a lot of richness.
  • Milk – For a richer flavor use a whole milk.
  • Cream cheese – This is going to help give your sauce that ultra creamy texture, and it adds a nice bold and vibrant flavor to the sauce.
  • Flour – This is the thickening agent for the garlic sauce you are making.

Refrigerate – Your chicken and vegetables can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can reheat in the microwave, or if you do the oven make sure to cover tightly with foil. Or the cream sauce will burn on the chicken.

Freezing – You will find the sauce can separate a bit once it thaws from being frozen. But if you want you can freeze it and reheat later. The chicken will store for 1-2 months in the freezer in the proper container.


How to know chicken is cooked?

Chicken will be a white color on the inside with no pink once it is done. The juices will also run clear instead of a milky color. But, the safest way to know for sure your chicken is done is using a meat thermometer. You want the internal temperature to read 165°F.

Do you need to let chicken rest before serving?

Allowing your chicken to rest 5-10 minutes will help lock and juices, leaving you with a moist chicken. If you slice into chicken right away you will find it can dry out your chicken.

Can I use bone-in chicken?

You are more than welcome to use bone-in you will just need to adjust the cooking time to ensure your chicken gets fully cooked and reaches proper internal temperature.
