Sheet pan dinners can make a perfect meal. They come together quickly, involve just a few kitchen tools, and clean up is usually a breeze! They also require very little planning. If it’s a busy weeknight and you are short on time, use this chicken and veggies sheet pan dinner to have food on the table in no time.
I like to have an arsenal of simple dinner recipes for busy weeknights. These usually include my beloved slow cooker and pressure cooker, but the classic oven can also be useful when I’m short on time. This chicken and veggies sheet pan dinner is the perfect example.
It was so simple and tasty, it has become one of my favorite quick go-to dinners. Most of these ingredients can probably be found in your kitchen right now, and if not, go ahead and substitute! Do you have broccoli and not brussels sprouts? Perfect!
Carrots will add a touch of color and flavor if bell peppers aren’t available. Just about any of your favorite veggies will do. I love that this dinner uses only one pan, and there’s only one timer to set. It’s literally the perfect weeknight dinner.
