Why This Recipe is Special

I love everything about my old sheet pan. (ad) It's stained with years of savory dinners, chocolate chip cookies, and big servings of Cat Head Biscuits.

Whenever I want to cook dinner in 30 minutes or less, my sheet pan does the trick. It's like an old friend that keeps on giving. You'll love how easy this chicken dish is to make, and feel good about serving healthy food to your family.

How to Make Sheet Pan Chicken

You can throw anything on a sheet pan, pop it in the oven, and magic will happen. In this recipe, all you do is cut up some veggies and nestle a few chicken tenders on the side. Plus, it's gluten-free!

Simply drizzle a little olive oil over the chicken and veggies, then sprinkle seasoned salt on top. Everything goes into the oven in one swoop...and comes out 30 minutes later ready to eat. Sheet Pan Chicken is so easy to make, you'll be adding it to your weekly meal plan!

How do you Serve this Dish?

I like to drizzle store bought mango sauce on the chicken. But, you can eat it plain if you like. The seasoning on the veggies and chicken creates amazing flavor in this dish.

Can I Make Substitutions?

Absolutely! The sky is the limit when making sheet pan dinners. You can substitute pork or beef tenderloin for the chicken and it will cook in the same time. Most vegetables will cook in 30 minutes at high heat, so feel free to use your family's favorite veggies.

    1. Hi Dallas. Thanks for your question! I've found that roasting chicken with veggies on a sheet pan is no different than stir-frying raw chicken with veggies in a frying pan. I've seen some chefs roast whole pigs on top of green beans and cook them in pork fat, so it's definitely done on several levels. The nice thing about this dish is that the chicken on the sheet pan roasts at 400 degrees, which cooks it quickly so the poultry doesn't touch the veggies while cooking. But even if it did, I've never had any problems with the sheet pan technique.

  1. I see you suggested mango sauce, any other suggestions? I’m not exactly sure what kind of sauce could be used.

    1. Hi Rose! You could use barbecue sauce, teriyaki, curry, honey mustard, or sweet and sour. Any type of sauce for poultry would work well, and you could even add fruit like pineapple if you wish. Thanks for asking!
