Sheet Pan Chicken

Need dinner in a jiffy? Looking for a dish that’s healthy and only messes up one pan? Sheet Pan Chicken to the rescue!

I love everything about my old sheet pan. 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 can throw anything on a sheet pan, pop it in the oven, and magic will happen. In this dish, I cut up some veggies and nestled a few chicken tenders on the side. Next, I added a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkled a little spice on top. Everything went into the oven in one swoop…and came out 30 minutes later ready to eat. Easy, peasy!

Just for kicks and giggles, I drizzled a little bottled mango sauce on the chicken that I bought at the grocery store. But, you can eat it plain if you like. The best part is that the whole thing comes together so fast, you’ll have time to watch a movie before bed. Now, that’s a win-win situation. 🙂
