Sheet Pan dinners have been all the rage for quite some time now and with good reason; easy prep, easy cleanup! One pan and dinner is DONE. I think it’s safe to say that this is the best dinner option for busy weeknights.

Meal Prep Chicken Breasts

I will also say that sheet pan dinners are THE answer to meal prepping. Store any leftovers into airtight containers and you have lunch for the next few days.

Cooking homemade meals every night while juggling a busy schedule can feel almost impossible. For that reason, I rely on recipes that can be prepared ahead of time, or recipes that are like this Sheet Pan Garlic Herb Chicken with Potatoes and Veggies – because our entire dinner is cooked on just a single sheet pan. 

Now, go grab some chicken and vegetables, and prepare this healthy, family-friendly meal tonight.

HOW TO MAKE A SHEET PAN CHICKEN DINNER

Easy to assemble and a snap to clean up, this all-in-one sheet pan Garlic Herb Chicken will become your new favorite meal. 

  • First and foremost, please, please dice the potatoes and carrots. Asparagus and Brussels sprouts cook faster so you can keep the cuts thicker for those. But, potatoes and carrots take more time so you want to dice those.
  • Next, toss veggies with olive oil, garlic and seasonings. Then, arrange the veggies on a sheet pan.
  • Rub chicken with olive oil and garlic; season with thyme and rosemary. Put chicken on top of a large piece of parchment paper; place pats of butter over each chicken breast and wrap up tightly with the parchment paper. Position chicken in the middle of the sheet pan. 
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked. Use a thermometer – chicken is done when internal temperature reaches 165F.
  • Optionally, 10 minutes before it’s done cooking, you can also add cherry tomatoes to the sheet pan.
  • Remove sheet pan from oven; let stand 5 minutes.
  • Serve.

HOW TO MEAL PREP CHICKEN

  • If meal prepping: Unwrap chicken and transfer it to a cutting board; slice it or dice it into bite sized cubes. 
  • Divide chicken and veggies evenly into meal prep containers
  • Cover and store in the fridge for 5 days, or freeze for up to 2 months.

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • If you are out of potatoes and want to use sweet potatoes, please go ahead, just make sure to dice them up small. 
  • Also, you don’t have to use asparagus and Brussels sprouts. You can go ahead with broccoli or green beans, or whatever else is hiding in that vegetable tray.

ENJOY!

  1. I love this recipe. It’s cooking now and I always add extra veggies & chicken. Second night, I add chicken broth, corn, a can of diced tomatoes and noodles to make delicious soup. One of my favorites.
