Customize It Instructions

  • If using wild-caught salmon fillets, follow same instructions as salmon in Steps 2 and 3, patting dry and seasoning flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper. Flip potatoes and continue roasting 4-6 minutes before adding salmon to empty half of baking sheet. Roast until salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 9-11 minutes.

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place chicken on empty half of prepared baking sheet and roast in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 17-20 minutes. Carefully remove potatoes after 13-15 minutes.

Spread into a single layer on one side of sheet, then top with Parmesan and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in hot oven until softened, 10 minutes. Potatoes will finish cooking in a later step. While potatoes roast, prepare ingredients.
