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. (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.

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 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!

How do you serve this dish?

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 the whole thing comes together so fast, you’ll have time to watch a couple of movies before bed. Now, that’s a win-win situation.

    Is it wise to put the veggies on the same pan as raw chicken?

    • 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.

    I made this tonight for the first time and it was great! Thanks Debi❤️

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

    • 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!
