Sheet-pan Garlic Chicken & Veggies
Simple, Sheet Pan Garlic Chicken and Veggies is delicious, healthy, and easy to make! This one pan meal is my go to on busy nights! The veggies stay crisp, but cooked, and the chicken is garlick-y and delicious!
Why is this one of my favorite Go-To’s?
I am a huge fan of simple.
My life is chaotic and hectic most of the time, and despite trying to stay organized, and reduce the chaos, I haven’t quite found that balance yet. I don’t exercise enough. I sometimes snap at my kids.
We don’t always do the required reading or homework when we should. And dinner sometimes consists of a drive through and a kid’s meal because this mama can’t always do it all.
But with this Sheet Pan Garlic Chicken and Veggies in my back pocket, I am feeling a lot more capable.
After making these great Sheet Pan Flank Steak Fajitas and sharing them with you guys a few weeks back, they inspired me to keep going with the one sheet pan idea because frankly it is a blessing for me. I hate dishes. I don’t want a lot of clean up. And I don’t have time. But I want tasty meals and plenty of veggies.
Sheet Pan Garlic Chicken and Veggies is so easy I think even a child could help make it! Right? Which is why I put it on our meal plan on a night my kids are helping with dinner.
They are great carrot peelers. And the chicken is so tender and delicious they eat it right up. Plus, since they help cut, chop, wash, and peel the veggies, they are better about eating them. Although, they still won’t touch the Brussels sprouts.
The good news is the vegetables you put in this are completely up to you. However, you may need to adjust cooking time to make sure they are cooked through.
What are some other veggies combo’s I could use?
In this particular recipe, I opted for carrot, zucchini, asparagus, brussels sprouts, mushroom and garlic. If this seems like too many veggies for you, you could always cut down on the number of veggies, and just use more of two or three different types.
Here are some examples of some different vegetable combinations you could try:
- Red onion, beet, sweet potato and squash for a more hearty flavor.
- Cherry tomato, bell pepper, zucchini and green beans for a more crisp tartness.
- Cauliflower, broccoli and cherry tomato to keep it nice and simple!
The potential is limitless with veggie combinations, so use your imagination, get creative, and be inspired!
Tips for cooking chicken in the oven:
- Let your oven pre-heat to 400 degrees F. If you don’t wait until your oven if fully heated, your chicken could turn out un-evenly cooked!
- Lightly grease your sheet-pan so your veggies & chicken don’t stick.
- Thoroughly toss your chicken in the bowl with olive oil and seasonings to ensure a nice and even coating.
- Let your chicken and veggies bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
When you pull your sheet-pan dish out of the oven, allow your delicious meal to rest and cool for just a few minutes before serving!
Using as Meal Prep

- Simply bake according to directions, then divide it into containers.
- I love to pair it with rice pilaf.
- It keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days.
Tips for refrigeration and leftovers:
One of the biggest questions I get asked about meal prep is how long it stays good for. According to the USDA, cooked chicken, when properly stored, stays good for 3-4 days. So how do you properly store chicken?
- Properly Handle: If you are cooking Italian Chicken Meal Prep recipe for meal prep, not to eat immediately, it is best to let it cool on the counter for a few minutes before refrigerating it. But don’t let it sit too long, or bacteria growth could be a real problem.
- Refrigerate: Keeps 3-4 days in the fridge.
- Store in Airtight Containers: I used Glad Containers, they are reusable, affordable, and I love them. But if you want to use glass containers or something else, feel free.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
