These sheet pan chicken recipes are the quick and easy meals you need in your life!
Let’s face it, life is crazy and eating healthy is tough.
So when my day calls for a nutritious yet rewarding dinner, I whip up one of my favorite sheet pan dinners.
The beauty of sheet pan recipes is just that, they require one pan. And they can be anything you want them to be.
Fajitas? Check. Pizza? You bet!
Tonight, give yourself a break and let the sheet pan do all the work. In return, you’ll be well rewarded with a gratifying, easy meal.
Take all the guesswork out of the equation and make this for dinner tonight.
In just 30 minutes, you can have some juicy chicken thighs and veggies ready to fill your belly.
This recipe uses a melody of sweet potato, broccoli, and bell pepper. However, you can use what you have on hand.
While the ingredients are no doubt humble, the sauce jazzes everything right up. It’s a unique sweet and savory mix of dates, coconut aminos, and spice.
If you prefer a little sour with your sweet sauce, try this one instead.
Rice vinegar is the sour element while pineapple is the sweet.
Add in the accompanying ingredients, and you’ll have a delicious sauce perfect for a chicken dinner.
As to what should go with the chicken, pineapple, bell pepper, and red onions pair best. It’s like a deconstructed Hawaiian kabob, which is one of my favorites!
How do you make a sheet pan dinner even easier? The answer is this foil packet recipe.
You’ll toss some chicken, veggies, and Italian seasoning into a foil packet, then bake on a sheet pan.
It’s not only ridiculously simple to throw together, but it makes cleanup a breeze.
If that weren’t good enough, the foil captures all the yummy juices and seasoning to infuse the chicken and veggies with the maximum amount of flavor.
Are you having a hard time coming up with a chicken dinner idea for tonight? You simply can’t go wrong with roasted chicken and baby potatoes.
The two are a flawless pair just begging to get roasted on a sheet pan.
With a simple seasoning of rosemary and garlic, the succulent chicken and fork-tender potatoes are utter perfection.
If you’re cutting down on carbs, replace the potatoes with artichokes. This four-ingredient recipe is about as tasty and minimal as they come.
You’ll marinate skinned chicken breast in jarred artichokes. Don’t forget to include the liquid from the jar, too.
After roasting, sprinkle on some Parmesan, and your low-carb meal is ready.
Feeling a snack attack coming on? Sheet pan chicken nachos are to the rescue.
A layer of tortilla chips is overloaded with melty cheese, black beans, and slow cooker Mexican chicken.
If time is of the essence, use store-bought rotisserie chicken instead.
You can make this large enough to share or solely for one. I prefer to save it for movie nights with friends or game days, but to each their own.
Chicken Parmesan is a classic that turns out immaculate when you bake it on a sheet pan.
The inside stays nice and juicy while the outside has the ideal crunch.
Add in the roasted broccoli and you have a comforting home-style meal.
If you find you need a little more, you can serve this on a bed of riced cauliflower for extra sustenance.
It’s amazing what homemade ranch can do to elevate the level of a simple chicken dinner.
Between the seasoning and apple cider vinegar, this ranch dressing is sublime.
Alone, broccoli and carrots may not sound all that exciting.
But once you pair them with the sauce and mouthwatering chicken, you’ll quickly change your mind.
Between the vitamins, protein, and carbs, this dinner checks all the boxes. It even gets bonus points for the delectable flavors.
Balsamic vinegar and honey add a sweet and tangy element that will knock your socks off.
It’s an easy step that transforms this dish into an elegant savory meal perfect for a weeknight and fit for a holiday.
I have a good feeling you’ll want to throw a pizza party just so you can make this pie.
The topping is an out-of-this-world combo of shredded buffalo chicken, fresh herbs, and four types of cheese.
It even has extra buffalo sauce and ranch dressing to top it off.
Ever since I first tried this recipe, it’s become a weekly staple in my household.
It has all my favorite fajita ingredients including bell pepper, red onion, and chicken, all of which tastes better with the incredible spice mixture.
Serve this with a side of tortillas, salsa, and sour cream for a fajita feast.
Dry chicken is not a problem with this recipe. The hoisin sauce coats all the ingredients to infuse them with flavor and keep them from drying out.
I like to add a little Sriracha, but you can leave this out if you don’t care for spice.
Sweet, savory, and umami, the Asian flavoring of this meal is super tasty and doesn’t require a long list of ingredients to make.
If you’ve never had harissa before, I urge you to give this recipe a try.
Harissa adds a fiery kick that pairs exceptionally well with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes.
You can make harissa paste from scratch or get some from the store.
Choose the latter, and all you have to do is coat the chicken and veggies, then bake them.
I love how this recipe manages to be both light and filling at the same time.
Lemon and parsley give the chicken and potatoes a wonderfully fresh taste that doesn’t disappoint.
For even more oomph, marinate your chicken and then slather some more of the lemon dressing on top when it’s done roasting.
Have some pesto and balsamic in your pantry? Use is to spruce up your chicken and veggies.
You could go with several options here for the vegetable component. But I like how this recipe keeps it simple with carrots and potatoes.
The best chicken dinner recipes should be full of flavor, nutrients, and not take a ton of fuss. That’s why this 25-minute meal makes the list.
It’s a foolproof mix of boneless chicken breast, broccoli, bell peppers, and snap peas. Meanwhile, the Asian sauce is a balance of sweet and spicy.
This is another weeknight favorite of mine. Asparagus and chicken are a perfect pair both in flavor and for roasting.
Paleo and gluten-free, this recipe is full of nourishment, too, so it’s great for when you want a clean eating recipe that doesn’t skip out on taste.
