Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lb small new potatoes, quartered
  • 1 box (3.9 oz) Betty Crocker™ Mediterranean Style Balsamic Sheet Pan Dinner Starter
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (6 to 8 oz each)
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup mini (1/2-inch) mozzarella balls (4 oz)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons sliced fresh basil leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Line 18x13-inch rimmed sheet pan with cooking parchment paper. In large bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of the oil and the salt. Add potatoes to bowl; toss to coat and place skin-sides down in single layer in pan. Set bowl aside. Roast 15 minutes. Remove from oven; stir.

    Meanwhile, combine remaining 3 tablespoons oil and the seasoning mix (from box) in same large bowl. Add chicken; turn to coat. Place chicken in pan with potatoes. Roast 22 to 27 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F) and potatoes are very tender and browned.

    Drizzle with sauce (from box). Top with tomatoes, cheese, onions and basil.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Mozzarella balls come in many sizes. We used 1/2-inch "pearl" mozzarella balls, but other types of fresh mozzarella work equally well. If using larger pieces of mozzarella, cut it into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • tip 2
    The key to crispy, yet tender potatoes in this sheet pan Mediterranean chicken and veggies dish is cutting them into similarly-sized pieces for even cooking. If some of your potatoes are large, cut them into sixths.
  • tip 3
    To take the bite out of raw onion, rinse cut onion in cold water for 30 seconds, then drain thoroughly.
