No need for a mixer for this recipe! Clean-up is easy too, if you want, you can mix everything in one bowl.

Sheet Pan Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

This easy meal uses just one baking sheet. The chicken comes out with delicious crispy skin, which pairs well with crunchy, peppery watercress and crisp, salty bacon. The roasted sweet potatoes add a bit of sweetness to round out the plate. From start to finish, the dinner takes just 30 minutes. And the best part is that 20 minutes of that time are hands-off. For easy cleanup, line your baking sheet with foil. Look for chicken leg quarters in the refrigerator section of your supermarket, next to the rest of the poultry (we prefer 8-oz. free-range chicken quarters). Pair with a light red wine like Gamay.

Oven-Fried Chicken

Great news—crunchy, flavorful fried chicken can be healthy. We marinate skinless chicken in buttermilk to keep it juicy. A light coating of flour, sesame seeds and spices, misted with olive oil, forms an appealing crust during baking. And with only 7 grams of fat per serving rather than the 20 in typical fried chicken—that is good news. To Make Ahead: Marinate the chicken for up to 8 hours.
