Sheet Pan Dinners! Brilliant no? Well I thought so. Starting with my post of Sheet Pan Fajitas . I thought I finally found a recipe collection that hadn’t been thought of yet. This world of Pinterest makes it so hard to be unique! Just to double check, I googled it and of course Martha, as in “The Martha” has a Sheet Pan Supper cook book. Jeesh, is there an idea out there that has not been taken? What’s a food blogger gotta do to come up with something original? The good news is the idea hasn’t been completely exploited (yet) so I’ll preserver knowing I am on the cusp of being original.
The trick..if there really is one. Is to have your chicken, veggies and potatoes all cook at the same time. A couple helpful hints: Trim your chicken so it is in mostly uniform pieces. Keep the broccoli in large florets so they don’t cook too fast and quarter the potatoes so they cook faster. If you find your broccoli is roasting a bit too fast for your taste…just pluck them off the cookie sheet and keep them warm. Personally I like my veggies well roasted but you may be more of a crisp tender kinda person.
Super easy – one pan to clean up and even that’s a breeze if you line with foil. There are so many ways to change this up. Switch out yukon’s for sweet potatoes and chicken breasts for chicken thighs…the combinations are endless!
I’ve got some other sheet pan recipes coming up real soon if Martha doesn’t pinch them from me first! Dang that women is everywhere!
