BBQ chicken is one of my favorite meals to make in the summertime. Something about chicken right off the grill is so nostalgic! Over here in Utah, half the year is a little too cold outside for a cookout, so I love making BBQ chicken in the oven. My Sheet Pan BBQ Chicken with Vegetables is a sweet and spicy sheet pan dinner that tastes like summer but can be made completely indoors.

How to Make Sheet Pan BBQ Chicken and Vegetables
Prepare the pan
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. I absolutely love using this sheet pan. I love the rose gold color! And since I like to keep them nice, I always use parchment paper. I also love how I can just throw it away and not have to scrub off baked-on food.
Bake the potatoes
Combine the potatoes, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and the salt and pepper on the prepared sheet pan. Bake for 18 minutes at 425 F.
Season the chicken
While the potatoes are cooking, whisk up the seasoning mixture in a small bowl. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture on both sides of the chicken, but don’t use all of it. Reserve a small amount for later.
Once the sweet potatoes are out of the oven, place the chicken, broccoli, and onions on the pan. Sprinkle the remaining seasoning and olive oil over the veggies. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken reads 165 F when measured with a meat thermometer.
Mix the honey and BBQ sauce together in a small bowl. Brush the sauce on the chicken and bake for 2-3 minutes more, or until the sauce is warmed through. Serve and enjoy!
