This dish was a quick and special weeknight meal. The parsley sauce really made the dish fabulous. I loved the roasted lemon slices as well. We ate it with roasted potatoes and asparagus on the side. Eating it with a green salad and quinoa, suggested by the author, would also be lovely.
This recipe was adapted from Food and Wine, contributed by cookbook author Julia Turshen. I increased the amount of chicken, mushrooms, and garlic. Delicious!
Yield: Serves 4 to 6
- 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs (I used 10 thighs)
- coarse salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (for each sheet pan) extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 pounds (24 oz) mixed mushrooms, such as shiitake and cremini, stemmed and halved if large
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced, plus slices for garnish
- 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley, plus more for garnish, as desired
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 large garlic cloves, minced
- Preheat the oven to 450°, preferably on convection roast, and place a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven to heat. (I used 2 sheet pans but may try to use only one next time.)
- Season the chicken generously on both sides with salt and pepper.
- Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the olive oil onto each hot baking sheet.
- Arrange the chicken in a single layer on the hot sheet and roast for about 5 minutes, until the chicken begins to brown.
- In a medium bowl, toss the mushrooms and lemon slices with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.
- Remove sheet pan(s) from the oven and flip the chicken thighs.
- Carefully scatter the mushrooms and lemon slices evenly around the chicken.
- Return the sheet pan(s) to the oven and roast for about 30 minutes, rotating the pan(s) halfway through, until the mushrooms and lemon are browned and the chicken is cooked through.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the remaining 6 tablespoons of olive oil with the 1/2 cup of parsley, the vinegar and garlic. Season the sauce with salt.
- Transfer the chicken, mushrooms and lemon slices to a platter.
- Drizzle with some of the sauce and garnish with lemon and parsley. Serve, passing the remaining sauce at the table.

Parsley is really great! I remember a recipe from a long time ago by Michael Chiarelli, that was a braise of chicken thighs in PLENTY of parsley sauce. Your sheet pan version reminded me of that one, which I loved.
I’ve never made a sheet pan meal – gotta jump on it, seems pretty “in” these days!
It’s “in” in my kitchen! 😉 Perfect for a weeknight meal. My husband isn’t the biggest parsley fan & he LOVED the sauce.
Fantastic weeknight meal! My hubby would be all over those lovely whole mushrooms, it’s one of his favorite veggies!
We really enjoyed it. Hope you get a chance to try it!
Sheet pan dinner is awesome! The chicken and mushrooms look perfectly roasted, Josette. I like mushrooms so this is definitely my kind of dinner!
Thank you so much, Sandhya. I’ve been really into mushrooms lately- thank goodness my husband is on the same page. 🙂
You just can’t go wrong with chicken and mushrooms, and the parsley sauce tops it off! Delicious! Thank you for sharing Josette.
I completely agree, of course. 😉 Thank you so much!
My kind of dinner Josette! Want to dig right in!
Thank you! We’re always on the same page, Johanne. 🙂
I love the simplicity of this recipe and how it uses everyday pantry staples. The chicken and cremini mushrooms looks delicious. What a great family meal – thanks for sharing!
