Need dinner in a jiffy? Looking for a dish that's healthy and only messes up one pan? Sheet Pan Chicken to the rescue!
Why This Recipe is Special
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.
