I’m not sure what’s more the rage, Instant Pot or sheet pan dinners. I’d like to think there’s plenty of room for both as each one makes life much easier when it comes to getting dinner on the table.

Making Sheet Pan Herb & Peach Glazed Chicken

The herb and spice mixture is all of six ingredients – sage, marjoram, thyme, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. You can mix this up and rub down the chicken thighs the night before.

The glaze can also be prepared in advance, and it too, is all of six ingredients that simmer together until thick and syrupy.

Peach Glaze Ingredients

When ready to get things fired up, slather it on the herb-rubbed chicken, scatter the sweet potatoes and onion wedges around, and you are oven ready. Acorn or butternut squash, carrots, baby potatoes, parsnips, and brussel sprouts would be delicious as well.

Ingredients

Glaze

  • ¾ cup peach jam
  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Chicken

  • 3 tablespoons fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh marjoram, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, about 1 ¾ lbs
  • 1 ½ lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large red onion, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and pepper

Instructions

Glaze

  • Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring just to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.
    Peach Glaze Done - thick enough to coat a spoon
  • Cook until thick, syrupy and can coat the back of a spoon, 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Can be made 3 days ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature before using.)

Chicken

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line an extra-large, rimmed sheet pan with parchment or aluminum foil. In a small bowl, combine sage, marjoram, thyme, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
    Herb Rub Ingredients
  • Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Rub herb mixture all over chicken pieces and place on prepared sheet pan. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
    Chicken Thighs Rubbed with Herb Mixture
  • Gently toss sweet potatoes and onion in a large bowl with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Scatter vegetables around the chicken thighs on the sheet pan.
  • Slather chicken with the glaze and drizzle some over the vegetables. Roast for 15 minutes, rotate the sheet pan and baste with any leftover glaze.
  • Bake until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are fork tender, about 10 more minutes. Temperature of the chicken should be 165°F.
  • Transfer to platter and serve.

  1. This was so easy and delicious just like your pecan bars I cant get enough of lol. Keep them coming!

  2. I made this dish last night, wonderful, I didn’t have any peach jam so I subbed hot pepper jelly, we liked that extra little kick of heat. It was easily put together and a breeze to cook, I lined my baking dish with foil, so clean up was ever so easy, too. Thanks!

  3. I like incorporating sweet fruit to poultry, but I don’t think I’ve ever added peach jam. This sounds like a great idea, and the chicken looks so luscious and succulent. Well done!
