  1. Mix olive oil, thyme, rosemary, oregano, and paprika in a bowl. Divide herb mixture in half, pouring half into a separate bowl, and stir lime juice into one of the halves. Pour each half into a separate large plastic resealable bag. Place chicken pieces into the bag without the lime juice; squeeze excess air out of bag and seal.
  2. Place onions and red bell peppers into a resealable plastic bag and pour half the marinade containing lime juice into the bag. Place broccoli, asparagus, and garlic into another resealable plastic bag and pour remaining lime juice marinade over vegetables. Squeeze excess air from both bags and seal. Refrigerate chicken and both bags of vegetables at least 2 hours to overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Transfer red bell peppers and onions to a baking dish; transfer broccoli, asparagus, and garlic to a separate baking dish. Bake both dishes of vegetables in the preheated oven for 20 minutes; stir and roast 10 more minutes. Remove vegetables from oven.
  5. Transfer marinated chicken into a roasting pan, shaking off excess marinade and discarding used marinade. Scatter fingerling potatoes around chicken pieces. Roast chicken for 30 minutes and flip chicken pieces and potatoes.
  6. Distribute all the vegetables into the roasting pan with the chicken pieces and potatoes. Roast until the chicken juices run clear, chicken is no longer pink inside, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest piece of chicken reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 30 more minutes. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You should watch you vegetables and change cook time according to your likes of doneness. I separate the onion from broccoli because I like my onions to be crispy on the edges, and the broccoli cooks much faster.
  • Editor's Note:
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the marinade ingredients. The actual amount of the marinade consumed will vary.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Changed up this recipe a lot due to the fact that I wanted something healthy with broccoli, chicken and potatoes and most other recipes were soup, and that wasn't what I wanted. Plus I had limi...

I made this last night. I changed a few of the vegetables but I don't think that makes a difference. It was great. I loved the asparagus and broccoli roasted with the seasoning. It was awesome. ...
