I took out the spinach (as what I had was wilted) and instead added fresh broccoli and some portobello mushrooms and it was delicious! I prefer chicken thighs over breasts and this recipe is wonderful. I also accidentally put in a shake of red wine vinegar thinking it was olive oil (then I corrected with the olive oil of course) and that little "mistake" ended up being tasty! This recipe is a whole meal on a pan.

Very easy and so delicious! I left the skin on my chicken and it crisped up very good. The juices from the chicken cooks down into the potatoes and makes them crispy and delicious too. I had never made spinach roasted before but it was very tasty. I think this recipe would work well with pork chops also!

Excellent and so easy. As an alternative to the potatoes, the first time I made this recipe I cut up turnips and rutabaga and roasted with the chicken. Butternut squash would be another excellent alternative to potatoes.

Great flavor and so versatile! I used whatever vegetables I had on hand and/or needed to get rid of. Potatoes, onion, red pepper and fresh green beans was a great combo...I adjusted the cook time a bit since the peppers and beans didn't need to go as long.

I made this last night, and it was delicious -very flavorful!! I added more veggies: carrots, celery, bell peppers, and mushrooms. I also added more seasonings to the veggies: Thyme, Italian Seasoning, and Parsley. I left the skin on the chicken and cooked everything for 55 min. I didn't add spinach this time.

Made tonight for the second time and really like this recipe. This time I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and I just cooked the veggies for 15 minutes before adding the chicken and then cooked all for 25 minutes. I then took out the chicken, and added spinach for the last 10 minutes. Great recipe!!!

This is one of the best dinners I've made. I used less potatoes and added carrots, zucchini and yellow squash. I didn't have rosemary so I used italian seasoning. It was super delicious! Thank you, Sherrie, for sharing your recipe!

Absolutely Delicious!!!! Even my 3 picky young children loved it! I added a teaspoon or so of Italian seasoning to the potato mixture. I also added lots of extra fresh garlic cloves (we love garlic), I also added extra fresh chopped onions. I also brushed both sides of chicken with olive oil and made sure to season both sides of chicken. So juicy and flavorful. We will put this in our book of “make again” recipes.
