With summer coming to a close and school starting up life is getting rather hectic if you ask me! The last thing I want to be worried about if what are we going to have for supper. I don’t want to have to come home from work and spend the entire night in the kitchen when I could be spending time with my family, that’s why I use ‘sheet' baking! It’s a quick and easy and healthy way to cook supper for the whole family!

Its pretty simple you take some vegetables that your family enjoys, add some oil, spices, and chicken; place in the oven and voila supper is ready!

I normally make this meal in the oven but as we have had a summer of heat waves I’ve adapted the recipe to the BBQ because it was way too hot to have the oven going.


  • 2lb chicken thighs/drums
  • 2 medium Country Magic yellow or red onions, cubed
  • 2 stalk celery, cubed
  • 4-6 Country Magic Potatoes white or red, cubed
  • 1 pint Country Magic grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • fresh parsley, chopped
  • dried herbs (thyme, rosemary, oregano etc.)

Carrots or any other favourite vegetables can be added to this recipe as well!

*Vegetables may need to be cooked slightly longer. Place back in oven ~10 minutes or until they are cooked to you liking.


  1. Prepare vegetables in wide strips or round “steaks”
  2. Toss vegetables in olive oil, vinegar, garlic, dried herbs, salt & pepper
  3. Rub chicken with salt & pepper or herbs of your choice**
  4. Place on BBQ in single layer (low setting)
  5. Cook for 20-30 minutes, flipping vegetables every 8-10 minutes
  6. Place chicken on BBQ (high setting)
  7. Cook for 20-25 minutes (until chicken is cooked through). Flip the chicken every 5 minutes, and the vegetables every 10 minutes.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

**I always use BBQ sauce on my chicken when cooking this way. Instead of using the dry rub, brush over your favorite BBQ sauce after flipping every time until done.
