What is a Sheet Pan Dinner?

A sheet pan dinner is a meal that you bake on a single pan in the oven. The pan contains protein and vegetables. It all cooks together at the same time. The result is a delicious dinner any hardly any dirty dishes. Plus, most of the cooking is hands-off since it’s in the oven.

As a mom, sheet pan meals are a necessity sometimes. Especially when trying to parent and finish up evening chores. They are easy to prepare and even easier to clean up.

I use the large Stoneware Bar Pan from Pampered Chef for all of my sheet pan dinners. I like to line the pan with aluminum foil, or parchment paper, to keep clean-up simple. This pan is such a high quality, I’ve had mine for 12 years and it is still going strong! You could absolutely skip lining the pan, but there’s nothing I hate more than cleaning the kitchen and washing dishes.

Tip: Use a Meat Thermometer

Use a meat thermometer to ensure the chicken is done. A meat thermometer takes all the guesswork out of cooking meat. A thermometer makes me more confident in the kitchen because I know that I’m serving my family fully-cooked meat. The thermometer we have has the government food safety temps printed on it for easy reference.

Alternative Vegetable Ideas

If you aren’t a fan of certain veggies or don’t have them on hand, sub in others. This dinner is all about ease and convenience.

  • Carrots – A slightly sweet and colorful addition to this sheet pan dinner.
  • Broccoli – Add some additional fiber and flavor to this meal. Frozen or fresh broccoli is suitable.
  • Red Bell Peppers – Bell pepper is slightly sweet, a bit crunchy, and perfect for this dish.
  • Sweet Potatoes – The sweet flavor of sweet potatoes pairs well with the Greek flavor of the meal.

What Kitchen Tools Do You Need for This Meal?

  • Sheet Pan – A shallow pan with a lip around the outside to hold the meal and its juices. Metal or stone pans work well for this style of meal.
  • Sheet Pan Liner – A silicone sheet pan liner helps control the mess in the bottom of the pan. Foil is an option if you don’t have a pan liner.
  • Meat Thermometer – Use a thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken before serving.
