14 Simple Sheet Pan Chicken Dinners

Background and History:

Sheet pan chicken dinners have become a beloved option for busy home cooks. The concept is simple: arrange chicken, vegetables, and seasonings on a single sheet pan, then roast to perfection. This method’s roots trace back to the “traybake” dishes of British cuisine, but its popularity has since spread worldwide.


  • Chicken: Opt for boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thighs, or drumsticks.
  • Vegetables: Mix and match fresh vegetables like bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, and potatoes.
  • Seasonings: Common choices include olive oil, minced garlic, herbs (rosemary, thyme, oregano), salt, pepper, and paprika.
  • Extras: Some recipes call for additional ingredients like lemon wedges, honey, soy sauce, or balsamic vinegar.
