Sheet Pan Chicken & Roasted Vegetables

 Sheet Pan Chicken & Roasted VegetablesI love ❤️ love ❤️ love ❤️ this easy and healthy dinner. It’s a lot of vegetables but there is never one bite left when I make my sheet pan chicken and veggies. There are so many health benefits from this colorful variety of vegetables but you can use some of mine and add your own favorites. I used to put the chicken and veggies all on a bare pan but the chicken made a big hard-to-clean mess so now I put the chicken only on parchment paper. (the veggies will brown better on a bare pan).

I just cut a strip of parchment paper 4 by 10-inches long and place it at the far end of the pan.

One Pan Chicken and Vegetables

Stirring the vegetables is key so they won’t stick. Instead of setting my timer for 25 minutes, I set it for 10 minutes, remove the pan to stir all the veggies, put it back and set the timer for another 10 minutes. I stir a second time and set the timer for the last 5 minutes. By cutting the chicken into two pieces, this dinner is ready to serve as soon as it’s done.

Since I’m cooking every day, I find myself looking for easier and faster ways to make a healthy meal and I make this one often because there’s not much to do once it’s in the oven. (more time to decide on what’s for dessert – today it’s peanut butter cookies, those easy ones made without flour 😋) I digressed. Back to my easy, healthy and so delicious sheet pan chicken dinner.

p.s. I am now making my own peanut butter – – game changer! I will share it soon… Stay well,  my fellow cooks!! ❤️

    I love every recipe of yours I’ve tried. Recently my husband was diagnosed with diabetes–wish you would add a diabetes category.

    There are so many times I just don’t want to cook, that’s when my freezer comes to the rescue. I make a big sheet pan of the roasted veggies then cool and freeze in a flat ziplock freezer bag. Then I just remove the amount needed for a meal and warm in a non-stick skillet until hot and dinner is done. I usually throw a couple of the crusty rolls into the oven as well. Couldn’t be easier!

    Ms. Jones – I have been watching your videos for some time. I kept thinking I know that face & voice. It finally dawned on me that it is you from the talk show. I watched your show for the run of it. I think I enjoy your YouTube recipes as much , or more than your talk show which I watched( & taped).🎉🌹👏👍Kim

    Good heart healthy vegan meal!

    Skip the olive oil (causes heart disease since it contains saturated fat)
    Use the lemon juice, garlic, rosemary, any other herbs (I like thyme)

    Use potatoes, veggies mentioned, plus celery in 2-inch pieces, red onion pieces, and cauliflower florets.

    Serve with a side of beans with BBQ sauce or a salad with fat free sodium free dairy free dressing soy free and animal free dressing.

    • Gary

      Lady, you don’t know what you’re talking about! Olive oil is widely known as a heart healthy and highly beneficial oil. If you don’t like Jenny’s HEALTHY recipes, put together your own food blog and stop inserting your erroneous opinion where it doesn’t belong.

      • riteonglor

        Thank you, Gary, for setting the lady straight about the olive oil. I read it and thought what is she talking about? Has something changed about using olive oil? I use it for everything just because I have always thought it was the healthy way to go. Thank goodness it still is.

      • Jenny Can Cook

        Olive oil is a part of the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet and has numerous health benefits. According to Healthline, “Quality extra virgin olive oil is incredibly healthy. Due to its powerful antioxidants, it benefits your heart, brain, joints and more. In fact, it may be the healthiest fat on the planet.” Daphne’s claim is incorrect.

      • Lee

        Well Gary, I imagine Jenny can handle her own blog. It’s pretty widely known that Olive Oil is a better choice, so Daphne is incorrect. You don’t have to be so nasty. We got enough of that these DAZE.

    • Martha Quintana

      I suggest you research Olive Oil. You are so wrong

    • Pebs

      Daphne,, What kind of ovoo are you buying, maybe get some great first cold press, it’s good for you. And BBQ sauce on oven roasted veggies, think you have lost it for sure, OVOO with help with that too,

    Me again – please forgive the typos – I have a new computer with a smaller keyboard and my fingers often hit the wrong keys. I meant to say that I get a ‘nice’ browning, not a ‘pie’, and the pan gets harder to clean, not lean. Also meant to tell you that I look forward to seeing your home-made peanut butter!

  13. Annie

    I have been sheet pan roasting chicken with veggies most of my married life (66 years). Sometimes I just half potatoes, russets and sweets, and place them cut-side down so they get crispy brown. Have not used parchment so I do get a pie browning on the chicken but I agree that the pan gets messy and harder to lean so will try your parchment paper method. As always Jenny, many thanks for sharing and caring during this sad time we are experiencing. Continue to keep safe.
