Ingredients: Serves 6

For the Chicken and Vegetables:

  • 6 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs
  • 2 lbs gold potatoes, diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 bell pepper, diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced into 1-inch pieces

For the Cajun Seasoning:

  • 2 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp cayenne pepper, to taste


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425F degrees.
  2. Whisk all cajun seasoning ingredients together in a small bowl or toss together well in a small resealable bag. 
  3. Place chicken skin side down on a large rimmed baking sheet and drizzle and rub 1 Tbsp of the olive oil evenly over thighs.
  4. Sprinkle with cajun seasoning to taste.
  5. Rotate to opposite side and drizzle and rub tops with another 1 Tbsp olive oil.
  6. Season with cajun seasoning to taste.
  7. Toss potatoes with 2 Tbsp olive oil and season with cajun seasoning to taste and toss.
  8. Transfer potatoes to a baking sheet placing them around chicken thighs.
  9. Roast in pre-heated oven for 30 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and add bell pepper and red onion over potatoes and toss, then return to oven and roast for about 10-15 minutes longer until chicken is golden and cooked through and potatoes are tender (you can broil during last few minutes to help brown them a little more if desired).
