    Sheet Pan Chicken

    Sheet Pan dinners are my go-to for fuss-free weeknight meals! My Sheet Pan Chicken with colorful veggies not only looks inviting but each bite is bursting with flavor. I toss chicken bites and veggies with a zesty, herby marinade and then spread them out on a sheet pan to cook in about 30 minutes.

    I love this because there are no extra pots and pans to clean afterward, and there are so many ways to serve this dish full of veggie power. It’s perfect for those nights when I want to clean out the fridge and still have a delicious dinner!

    Then I season everything liberally with a quick marinade, then pop it all in the oven. Meanwhile, I just relax and sip on some well-earned wine while dinner cooks itself in about 30 minutes. Sounds good, right? Well, let me tell you more…

    Ingredients Needed

    cut up veggies
    • Chicken: I am using boneless, skinless chicken thighs today, as they are easy and yield juicy, tender bites. But if you prefer white meat, feel free to use chicken breast or chicken tenders. White meat will bake 5-8 minutes faster than dark meat.
    • Veggies: Truly rainbow colored to make it look pretty. We used multi colored bell peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, carrots, red onion and broccoli.
    • Marinade: Olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, fresh parsley, red chili flakes, salt, pepper.
    • Parmesan cheese: Freshly grated for garnish.

    Easy Sheet Pan Chicken Recipe

    1. Make the marinade: In a small bowl, I mix olive oil with garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, fresh parsley, red chili flakes, salt, and pepper.

    2. Coat the chicken and veggies with marinade: I toss the marinade well with the chicken and veggie pieces in a big bowl, making sure everything is mixed well and coated all over.

    3. Bake the sheet pan chicken: I preheat the oven to 400°F and place the rack in the center. I lightly coat the sheet pan with nonstick spray. Then, I spread the chicken and veggies in a single layer on the greased sheet pan and bake it for 30 minutes. If needed, I broil it for a few minutes at the end to get a nice, crispy finish. Finally, I garnish with grated Parmesan and serve it immediately.

    Alpana’s Tips

    1. Cook it at high temperature. I like it to bake the chicken and veggies at 400°F.
    2. I use a large sheet pan so I can spread the chicken and veggies in a single layer, which helps them cook evenly.
    3. I choose veggies that have the same cooking time. If I’m using potatoes, sweet potatoes, or butternut squash, I give them a head start by baking them for a bit before adding the chicken and other quicker-cooking veggies.
    4. I make sure not to overcook the chicken. Chicken thigh bites would take about 30 minutes at 400°F, but chicken breast and tender bites cook faster, in about 20-22 minutes.
    5. I love garnishing it with parmesan cheese and/or parsley for extra flavor.

    Serving Suggestions

    • Rice/brown rice/quinoa: I love topping up my rice, brown rice, or quinoa bowls with this sheet pan chicken and veggies. It adds so much flavor and makes a simple grain bowl really special.
    • Pastas: I stir with any of my favorite pasta dishes, or couscous. My Pesto Pasta and Fettuccine Alfredo would be great with these chicken and veggies added in. Or serve it with simple egg noodles.
    • Believe it or not, it’s great in tacos. I tried it!! (now a days I try everything in a taco)
    • For low carb followers, it’s a complete meal in itself. One pan chicken with veggies dinner, yum.
    • I also love turning it into a salad. Just add some fresh greens, maybe a vinaigrette, and it’s a whole new way to enjoy these flavors.

    Variations

    1. I like to switch it up sometimes by using different cuts of chicken like chicken breast or chicken tenders. You can even try different proteins like sausage or salmon with the same recipe—it’s so versatile!

    2. Other veggies to play with: Potatoes and sweet potatoes are great here. They just need some heads up time to bake, so bake them 10 -12 minutes ahead of time before adding the rest of the veggies and chicken. Other vegetable options are brussels sprouts, green beans, asparagus, butternut squash, cauliflower and cherry tomatoes.

    3. When it comes to herbs, I sometimes like to use basil, rosemary, or thyme in this recipe. They add a different flavor dimension that’s really delicious.
