This cinnamon carrots and chicken sheet pan dinner is a simple, easy way to get a healthy dinner on the table!

I know, most people will wrinkle their noses at the idea of chicken paired with cinnamon. The thought didn’t appeal to me either at first, until I took a leap of faith and gave it a shot. Most folks don’t think of cinnamon as being part of a savory dish until they stop to consider that it is in many savory ethic recipes. Indian food uses cinnamon a lot along with curry and other spices. It’s a delicious way to enjoy yet another night of chicken.

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.

  1. My question is this: do you have to thaw the bag before cooking, or are you cooking it straight from the freezer?

    1. Brandi J – Straight from the freezer. It’s frozen when I put it on the sheet pan and into the oven.
