Ingredients In Roasted Honey Orange Chicken And Potatoes
- Potatoes – I use baby potatoes today as they roast down well at the same time as the chicken without any need to slice up.
- Olive oil – We want a nice neutral oil to toss our potatoes in. This will allow them to get beautifully golden brown.
- Seasoning – Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper are all we need flavor wise for this component.
- Chicken – Thighs are recommended for this recipe as they are moist and tender but breast will work as well.
- Honey – We want a nice sweet glaze for our chicken and honey pairs perfectly. Maple syrup can also be used as a substitute.
- Sauce – I used chili garlic sauce today to give some heat and extra flavor.
- Orange – One entire fresh orange sliced up into 1/4 inch pieces to lay over top.
- Seasoning – Salt and pepper, measured or to taste.
- Pomegranate seeds – Beautiful little ruby red seeds that will add a bright burst of sweetness and color.
- Parsley – Fresh and chopped up fine to be sprinkled liberally on top.
How To Make One Pan Roasted Honey Orange Chicken And Potatoes
- Preheat your oven: To 425 F degrees. Line your pan with parchment paper.
- Prepare the potatoes: In a large bowl toss together the baby potatoes with the olive oil, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Prepare the chicken: Microwave the honey for about 20 seconds then whisk it together with the garlic chili sauce in a small bowl. Place the chicken thighs skin side down on the prepared baking sheet. Brush each thigh generously with the honey mixture, then season with a bit of salt and pepper. Flip the thighs over so that the skin side is up and repeat.
- Bake: Scatter the potatoes around the chicken thighs then place the orange slices over top. Bake for about an hour until the skin is golden brown and the meat easily detaches from the bone. The potatoes should also be nicely baked and golden brown.
- Finish the dish: Garnish with pomegranate seeds and parsley if preferred then serve hot!
What Else Can I Use In This Dish?
There’s lots of things you can do with a one pan dinner! Feel free to include the following on your pan:

One Pan Roasted Honey Orange Chicken and Potatoes
- 1 ½ pounds baby potatoes cleaned
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper ground
For Chicken Thighs
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
- 6 chicken thighs with skin and bones
- 1 medium orange cut into 1/4″ slices
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper ground
- ¼ cup pomegranate seeds
- ¼ cup fresh parsley chopped
- Preheat the oven to 425 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl toss together the baby potatoes with the olive oil, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Microwave the honey for about 20 seconds just so that it warms up a bit, then whisk it together with the garlic chili sauce in a small bowl. Place the chicken thighs skin side down on the prepared baking sheet. Brush each thigh generously with the honey mixture, then season with a bit of salt and pepper. Flip the thighs over so that the skin side is up and repeat brushing with the honey mixture and seasoning with salt and pepper.
- Scatter the potatoes around the chicken thighs then place the orange slices overtop.
- Bake for about an hour until the skin is golden brown and the meat easily detaches from the bone. The potatoes should also be nicely baked and golden brown.
- Garnish with pomegranate seeds and parsley if preferred. Serve while warm.
- Usually baby potatoes only require about 20 to 30 minutes in the oven, but I wanted these potatoes to be nicely roasted and browned. Because they roasted together with the honey mixture from the chicken, the potatoes almost caramelized on the bottom. If you prefer your potatoes less cooked, simply add them 30 minutes into roasting the chicken.
- Drumsticks can also be used in this recipe with no change to cooking time, temperature or ingredients.
- If you’re using skinless boneless thighs, the roasting time will only be around 30 minutes.
