Oven Baked Chicken, Potatoes, & Carrots With Reynolds Oven Bags

by Janell on August 27, 2014

Reynolds Oven Bags


Summer days are fun and lazy. You don’t have the rush to get kids from school and then to after school activities. But those days are over. Now our days are packed with scheduled activities with very little time for important things like dinner.

I hate eating out. It’s so bad for you and it can be expensive – but it’s quick. My biggest money saving tip is to make a plan. Know what each day of the week looks like and plan a dinner according to the day’s activities.

I love meals that you can throw together and bake. It’s an all in one meal with very little prep work and it’s good for you! Many people think that Reynolds Oven bags are just for turkey – but they can make so many more dinners.

This is one of my favorite recipes. You can throw it together really quickly and you have a complete dinner – with potatoes and carrots in about an hour! Plus there is almost no clean up! Just throw the bag away! No stuck on food to soak or scrub!

Oven Baked Chicken, Potatoes, and Carrots

Printable Version

  • 2-3 pounds of bone-in chicken breasts or chicken thighs
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 whole garlic cloves, died
  • 1 white onion, quartered
  • 4 potatoes, quartered
  • 1 16oz bag of carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Reynolds Oven Bag


  1. Preheat oven to 350*. Place 2 Tablespoons of flour into the Reynolds Oven Bag, shake around. (This helps prevent the bag from bursting – so it’s an important step.)edit spices
  2. In a small bowl mix together the salt, paprika, onion powder, fried thyme, chili powder, and pepper. Cover the outside of the chicken and under the skin with the spices.edit Dinner 4
  3. Place the chicken in the bag. Then add the carrots, potatoes, garlic, and onions. Seal the bag with the twist tie provided and place in a large baking dish that is at least 2 inches high on the sides.edit dinner 2
  4. Cut six 1/2 slits in the top of the bag so the steam can escape. Make sure there is enough room in the oven to allow the bag to expand without touching any parts of the oven.
  5. If you are baking chicken thighs bake about 45-50 minutes (180*). If you are baking chicken breasts (170*) it will take about 55- 60 minutes.

To serve, just cup open the top of the bag and enjoy. Just be careful as the steam escapes. It couldn’t be easier to make a quick 1 pan dinner! I love meals that I can throw together and then throw away the mess.

We made this meal at my sister’s house and there was plenty for everyone (There were 5 adults and 5 kids!) Even the little kids loved it and kept asking for more vegetables. Even the picky 4 year old that said she hated carrots.



Here’s a bonus recipe that is quick and easy!

Italian Sausage & Peppers

  1. Prep Oven Bag according to directions on the box.
  2. Fill oven bag with your favorite type of sausage and roughly chopped peppers and onions.
  3. Cook until sausage is well done and vegetables are fork-tender.
  4. Serve with fresh bread.

If you are looking for an easy weeknight meal, pick up a box of Reynolds Oven Bags. They will save dinnertime!

I almost forgot about those bags. My mom used them a lot when we were little.

I love cooking with oven bags. They make it much easier to clean things up!

This is one of our favorite meals. I’ve never tried the Reynolds bag before, but that is going to change. I love the easy clean up.

I have a pack of these bags and I don’t think I’ve ever even used them! I will try this recipe tonight for dinner!

Your dinner looks like it came out great! I need to give these bags a try, I hate cleaning a casserole dish after cooking something in the oven.

Since my hubby does the clean up, I usually don’t pay too much attention… but maybe I should play nice and at least try to reduce the amount of mess I make! Everyone could use easy and quick prep, cook and clean-up meals for busy days!

Debbie Denny August 28, 2014 at 1:43 pm

Those are great to use. I have not used oven bags in a while.

Shouldn’t the vegs be placed under the roast beef or chicken so that the drippings fall onto the vegs which will create stock as well?

Janell August 19, 2016 at 7:11 am

That would work well too – great idea.
