Follow these steps for a symphony of flavors:


  1. Preheat Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 400°F. Grease a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray for easy cleaning later.
  2. Prepare Vegetables: Place potatoes, zucchini, red onion, and bell pepper on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss for an even coat.
  3. Create Seasoning Blend: Combine smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, brown sugar, cumin, and salt. Season chicken breasts with this flavorful mix, along with additional salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange Ingredients: Spread the seasoned veggies on the baking sheet, leaving space for the corn. Nestle the seasoned chicken among the veggies.
  5. Corn Preparation: Season corn with salt and pepper, and top each cob with 1/2 tablespoon of butter. Wrap each cob in foil and place them in the empty space on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake to Perfection: Bake in the upper third of the oven until the chicken reaches 165°F, approximately 25 minutes.
  7. Barbecue Finale: Remove the sheet from the oven, brush the chicken with barbecue sauce, and return it to the oven. Turn on the broiler to high, allowing the sauce to caramelize and the veggies to achieve a delightful color in 2-3 minutes.
  8. Serve and Savor: Your Sheet Pan Barbecue Chicken Dinner is ready! Serve and relish the harmonious blend of flavors.
