One-Pan Ratatouille with Chicken
Juicy roast chicken and a warm, velvety summer-vegetable stew, all on a baking sheet? It was a tall order.
Why This Recipe Works
Who says this rustic stew of late-summer produce needs to be made in a pot? To make it on a baking sheet and include chicken for a complete meal, we first spread bite-size grape tomatoes, sliced shallots, and chunks of summer squash, eggplant, and bell peppers on the sheet and roasted them partway through. Once they had wilted a bit, we pushed them to one side of the sheet and added the chicken so it could roast while the vegetables finished cooking. We then removed the chicken from the sheet to let it rest and stirred the drippings into the vegetables until the vegetables absorbed the liquid. We brightened up the ultrasavory dish by stirring in some fresh basil and briny kalamata olives and sprinkling lemon zest and chopped thyme over top.
