Sheet Pan Chicken Drumsticks Dinner
Dinner isn't any easier when creating a sheet pan dinner. Dinner cooks all at once on one baking sheet and it makes minimal mess and cleanup! Not only that, but by preparing a sheet pan dinner, there's a nice balance of meat and vegetables for your family to enjoy!
To make cleanup even easier for sheet pan meals, I always use parchment paper-lined baking sheets. The parchment paper peels away from the baking sheet and leaves little to no messes behind. It saves time scrubbing away any leftover oils or sauces.

Oven Roasted Chicken Legs
Making chicken drumsticks in the oven is super simple and doesn't require much work to make them flavorful and crispy.
In a large bowl, blend together the olive oil and seasonings and then toss the chicken legs into the bowl to coat well.
If you wish, you can marinate the legs for up to 24 hours for maximum flavor if you wish. Use a gallon-sized Ziploc bag to marinate.
Once the chicken is added to the sheet pan for roasting, drizzle the remaining olive oil mixture and discard the bag.
When placing the drumsticks onto the sheet pan, be sure to leave room for air to circulate around the meat. This will result in even cooking of the chicken legs.
Sheet Pan Vegetables
Roasted potatoes and carrots complete these meal and it's all done at the same time! Olive oil and spices are added to a large bowl and then the quartered russet potatoes and baby carrots are then added.
The vegetables are tossed to coat well and then transferred to the pan with the chicken. Carefully place the vegetables around the chicken legs making sure not to overlap or crowd.
Remember, space for air to circulate is important when making successful sheet pan meals.
