When deciding what to make for dinner, you can never go wrong with chicken, especially when it’s a whole meal cooked on just one sheet pan. These 20 fast and healthy chicken sheet pan dinners are great for easy meal prep, and are exactly what we need to usher us through the busy week.
One pot wonders and sheet pan dinners are the saving grace of the workweek. I mean, how can you possibly resist an entire meal that effortlessly comes together on just one sheet pan?
You can’t. And a chicken sheet pan dinner? Forget it!
Chicken is this country’s go-to, and something we seem to rarely tire of eating. It’s healthy, tasty, easy, reliable, and affordable. Plus, we pretty much always have some in our fridge or freezer.
These sheet pan dinners not only save you time in the kitchen, but they also save you clean up, and fewer dishes means more time to relax on the couch with some Netflix and a glass of wine (cue the singing angels).
We’re excited to bring you our latest installment of our Meal Prep Series, where we share 20 recipes you can plan and prep ahead of time for a head start on your week—and show Monday-Friday who’s boss.
