Chicken And Sweet Potatoes Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe

This chicken and sweet potatoes sheet pan dinner recipe could be the answer to, “what’s for dinner tonight?”!

For the next two weeks, I’m focusing mainly on clean eating sheet pan dinners. These dinners are so simple and quick to prep for the freezer, it’s almost silly.

I love the flavor of this Clean Eating Chicken And Sweet Potatoes Sheet Pan Dinner especially. Cumin and sweet potatoes just go together. Don’t you think?

All you have to do is purchase the ingredients from the freezer section at your local store. Come home, dump them all into a zipper top freezer bag along with some spices, and voila! Just 5 minutes to prep a meal that can sit in your freezer for up to 4 months!

Then, when you’re ready for an easy dinner, just toss a little oil into the bag and empty the whole thing out onto a sheet pan. Bake for approximately 1 hour and you’ve got a delicious dinner with very easy clean up and minimal dishes! Now that’s my kind of dinner!

RECIPE NOTE: If you can’t find packages of vegetables in the same size that I used, just get the closest you can find. A little more or less won’t make a difference in cooking. You can also add more chicken for more people, or easily cut the recipe in half for one person if you so choose. That’s the nice thing about sheet pan dinners. They are totally adjustable to your needs.


This Nordic Ware Half Sheet is very similar to what I have and use. (I got mine at a local restaurant supply store.) It’s perfect for this type of recipe!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Vick – Thanks! I hope you enjoy it!

  2. do you thaw this recipe before cooking? thanks

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jamie – Nope! I just put it frozen onto the pan. 🙂

  3. Bernadine says:

    Ok, I’m still working on my first cup of coffee so this might sound like A dumb question- do you freeze the uncooked chicken separately or is it safe to add the raw chicken to one bag with veggies then freeze everything until ready to cook?

    1. Bernadine – As long as the chicken has been safe in the fridge, it’s safe to freeze everything together. That said, I usually use frozen chicken to prep these types of meals. But you should be fine with raw if the chicken is fine to begin with. But if it makes you uncomfortable, you can always freeze separately and add the chicken once frozen. Hope that helps!

  4. This sounds so delish! Question…besides onions, what other veggie would you recommend that would cook up well with the chicken and sweet potatoes? My family are not onion fans! Thanks for suggestions.


    Are these bone in chicken breasts??
