  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs 🍗
  • 4 medium-sized potatoes, cut into wedges 🥔
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 🫒
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning 🌶️
  • 1 teaspoon paprika 🌶️
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 🧄
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 🧅
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme 🌿
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 🌿
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 🧂
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 🧂
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish) 🌿
  • Lemon wedges (for serving) 🍋


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Turn on the oven to 425 °F (220 °C). For simple cleanup, line a sizable baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. This will help achieve crispy skin.
  3. Season the Chicken and Potatoes:
    • Cajun seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper should all be combined in a small bowl. Mix thoroughly.
    • In a sizable mixing bowl, combine the chicken thighs and potato wedges. Olive oil should be drizzled over them before the Cajun spice mixture is added. For an even coating, toss.
  4. Arrange on the Baking Sheet:
    • Place the seasoned chicken thighs and potatoes on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer, ensuring some space between each piece for even cooking.
  5. Roast in the Oven:
    • For about 30-35 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and the potatoes are golden and fork-tender, roast the one-pan roasted cajun chicken with potatoes in the preheated oven.
  6. Garnish and Serve:
    • Remove the sheet pan from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.
    • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a pop of color and freshness.
    • Serve the Cajun-spiced chicken and potatoes with lemon wedges on the side for an extra burst of tangy flavor.
  7. Enjoy the Flavorful Dish:
    • As a full and satisfying meal, serve the one-pan roasted cajun chicken with potatoes. For a well-rounded dinner, you can also serve it with a fresh green salad or your preferred vegetable.
