Winner winner, sheet-pan chicken dinner! This meal is a crowd-pleaser that requires little effort in cooking or dish duty afterwards. The whole chicken is seasoned simply with salt, pepper, herbs and lemon, while summertime veggies like zucchini, tomatoes and onions roast alongside until tender-sweet and oh-so flavorful. The majority of the recipe is hands-off, so you can relax while it all finishes in the oven and the enticing aroma of savory chicken and thyme builds in the kitchen.
