This sheet pan chicken and veggies is just one of my favorite sheet pan healthy dinner ideas that come together so quickly and effortlessly. Charred roasted veggies, tender pieces of chicken, seasoned with delicate herbs and spices!
Chicken and Vegetable Sheet Pan Dinner
If you’ve ever had sheet pan dinners before, you’ll know that you can never have too many recipes. It’s so nice to be able to have a complete dinner ready so easily, but if you have kids, you’ll know that it’s always a good thing to have variety in your back pocket!
Sheet pan chicken and vegetables are a variation on sheet pan chicken thighs. That sheet pan pork chops, and my one pan balsamic chicken and veggies are ones I make regularly because I know everyone loves it, and it’s nice to have a healthy dinner idea come to life without extra time and effort.
It’s great for busy weeknights, but it’s just as great for lazy weekends, and leftovers for lunch the next day make it easy to grab something healthy!
Why You’ll Love This Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner
- It’s super easy to throw together on days when you’re in a rush or you just don’t feel like making a big deal about dinner.
- Everything gets cooked on one sheet pan which makes clean up a breeze.
- It’s delicious the way it is but can be completely customized to your liking, from the chicken, the veggies, and the seasonings!
- You can easily double the recipe by using 2 sheet pans, especially if you’re wanting leftovers or more for meal prep.
- Prep this dish ahead and have it ready to pop in the oven when it’s time to eat!
Tips & Variations
- As with any sheet pan chicken and vegetable dish, you can switch up the veggies to whatever you and your family like. Sheet pan chicken and potatoes is another favorite!
- In the winter I like to use root vegetables and cook along with the potatoes but in the summer I tend to use more zucchini with the broccoli.
- Line your baking sheet for even easier cleanup (and nonstick!)
- Don’t overcrowd the pan. Keeping items too close together will create steam and keep the sheet pan veggies from crisping up nicely.
I use chicken breast because I find it easier for my kids to eat, but you can switch out the type of chicken you use. Sheet pan chicken thighs are great, as are any skin-on, or bone-in options. Chicken with bones will take a bit longer, so you’ll want to cook them with the potatoes are shortly after.
Not necessarily. Root vegetables like potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, turnips, beets, etc. will take longer to cook than other vegetables. The entire meal is cooked on one sheet, but depending on what you put on it, some ingredients may go on first while the others catch up later.
Sure! This is a great meal prep dish both before and after it’s made. Make it ahead of time by seasoning the chicken and marinating it for a few hours. Chop your veggies, and you can also season those if you’d like. Keep everything stored separately in the fridge and add them to the pan when you’re ready to roast.
If you’re making a double batch, portion it out into separate containers and keep stored in the fridge. That way you’ll have easy access to a quick and healthy lunch on the go.
Leftovers can be kept in the fridge, in an airtight container, for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or the oven.
