- Step 1: Add chicken breasts to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

📌Quick Tip: Use parchment paper for easy clean up! Leave the skin on the chicken breast while roasting for a flavorful and moist chicken breast. It can be removed after baking if desired.
- Step 3: Toss the potatoes in vegetable oil and season with Italian seasoning and paprika.
- Step 4: Add the potatoes to the sheet pan with the chicken breasts.
- Step 5: Toss the carrots with vegetable oil and Italian seasoning. Set aside while the chicken and potatoes cook. Since the carrots will not take that long to cook, we're going to allow the chicken and potatoes to cook first.
- Bake the chicken and potatoes for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and stir the potatoes.
- Add the carrots to the other side of the chicken.
- Return to the oven and bake for 15 more minutes or until the chicken reaches 165°F.
- If the chicken, potatoes, and carrots haven't browned, broil for about 5 minutes. Keep a close eye on them so they don't burn!

- Once the chicken is done baking, let it rest a few minutes so all the juices don't run out when you cut into it. Allowing it to rest gives the juices time to redistribute resulting in a moist chicken breast.
