It is a welcome meal to regularly devour in our home and if you like herb-infused food,  you will find this satisfies your senses with a large amount of  pleasure.

How amazing can these vegetables and marinated chicken be together? I’ll let you be the judge, but I’m sure you will rule in its favor. Go ahead and preheat the oven and prepare the marinade. In this version, I used 6 boneless/skinless chicken thighs. Honestly, this marinade can handle more chicken than this, so if you need to expand the number of portions this creates, then add a couple more pieces.  Moist flavor of thighs blends well with the herbs in the marinade. However, I have also made this using the individually packaged boneless/skinless chicken breasts that are portion-sized.

Onto the non-stick foil-lined rimmed baking sheet, place the quartered potatoes and the pint of tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle lightly with salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Toss to coat.  Bake for about 20-25 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and add the string beans, tossing to mix within the other vegetables. Place the chicken on top of the vegetables and drizzle the marinade over the whole pan. After baking for another 10 minutes, remove from oven and baste with marinade juices. Return it to the oven for about another 10-15 minutes or until internal temperature registers at least 165 degrees.
