Sheet Pan Roasted Hen Panzanella

Page Ventresca

Fantastic information! You are producing a mouth watering meal at property tonight and you already have every thing you will need. Okay, maybe most of what you have to have, but you can improvise!  

This effortless weeknight food will come jointly in minutes and the prep is minimum. At the time you slice the tomatoes, onion and zucchini they go on a sheet pan with the rooster and into the oven. Every thing cooks together and largely minds alone. You just need to be on hand at the midway mark to add the bread.  

Bake this straight on a sheet pan, or for less difficult cleanup, line your pan with a sheet of parchment paper. Get started by chopping all of your veggies. Slice the cherry tomatoes, purple onion, and halve and slice the zucchini. Relying on your bread, you might want to slice it before tearing it into smaller sized chunks. Do this now, right before slicing your chicken, whilst your chopping board is still clean. 

You can use all hen thighs, as named for in the recipe down below, or use 50 percent thighs and fifty percent breasts. I utilised a bundle of every single when I created this, which was 5 thighs and 3 breasts. Be positive to reduce the greater parts in half so that all the portions will be about the similar measurement and cook dinner evenly. Zucchini works nicely in this recipe, but you could also use yellow squash, eggplant, environmentally friendly beans, asparagus, or even sliced carrots. To make this gluten-free of charge, toast the bread on a different sheet pan. Give it a light-weight drizzle of olive oil beforehand and serve the bread individually.

I did not have arugula, so I produced a quick kale salad as an alternative: slice kale into slim ribbons add a generous squeeze of fresh new lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper. Massage kale with clear hands right until it softens a bit. Best with rooster and panzanella sprinkle with pink pepper flakes and shaved Parmesan. 

Sheet Pan Roasted Chicken Panzanella

  • 8 boneless, skinless hen thighs 
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 pink onion, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, halved and sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons added virgin olive oil
  • salt or garlic salt 
  • freshly floor black pepper
  • 2 cups baguette bread, roughly torn into 1-inch items
  • 4 cups washed arugula


  • 2 Tablespoons crimson wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup excess virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to style

Preheat oven to 425º F.  Arrange hen on a frivolously greased or parchment lined baking sheet, then scatter tomatoes, zucchini and onion all over the rooster. Drizzle olive oil more than all and time with salt, or garlic salt, and pepper. 

Roast in oven for 10 minutes. Take out tray from oven and insert torn bread. Return to oven and prepare dinner an further 10 minutes or until a food thermometer inserted in the thickest section of the chicken reaches 165º F. 

For Dressing:

Whisk red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and freshly floor black pepper collectively in a modest bowl.

Provide independently in shallow bowls, spooning oven roasted hen, greens and bread in excess of  arugula. Drizzle dressing more than best.
