Sheet Pan Crispy Chicken Thighs and Lemon Rosemary Potatoes

A lemony dressing and a few sprigs of rosemary add fresh flavor to this one pan meal of crispy chicken thighs and tender roasted baby potatoes.
Don’t miss the step to divide the dressing into three portions to give the dish maximum flavor - one third for the potatoes, one third for the chicken, and one third drizzled over the finished dish.

  • 2 cloves Garlic, finely chopped
