Roasted Chicken and Vegetables Sheet Pan Supper – with ideas for lots of variations

Roasted Chicken and Vegetables Sheet Pan dinner

 

Ever since Christmas when I tried the sheet pan supper idea from Simple Bites, I’ve been making different versions.  I’ve used turkey breast, pork tenderloin, and boneless chicken breast.

I vary the seasonings, going with whatever hits my mood at the time.  And the vegetables are either what looked good in the grocery or what I’ve got handy in the fridge.  Once summer hits, I’m sure I’ll be adding in farmer’s market fare as well.

This sheet pan method is so simple.  It’s always healthy and tastes fantastic.  It doesn’t take long, but you do need about 45 minutes total.  For that reason, I don’t do this meal on our busiest nights.

For a family of 6 or more people, you’ll need either two sheet pans or one large pan.  I bought this half sheet from Nordic Ware.  Mine came from Walmart.  The one I linked is Amazon, on sale for $10 as I write this, but it says the normal price is $110, which is nuts.  I paid about $14 at Walmart.

I use this pan all the time.  Not just for these dinners, but also for baking cookies, warming bread, cooking bacon…  I’m really happy with this purchase!

Here are the ingredients I used for this Roast Chicken and Vegetable dinner:   [Read more…]
