If you love the ease of a a good, clean eating, one-pot meal, then a sheet pan dinner should be right up your alley!
I recently became aways of a small but growing craze involving cookie sheets. The idea is to use your oven and a cookie sheet as a means for making a “one-pan-meal”. It offers little clean up and the deliciousness of roasted vegetables.
So I got to work and came up with 5 different recipes using only spices and ingredients straight from the freezer. That way, you can prep these for the freezer in about 20 minutes and then just use one sheet pan make dinner all week long! Now that’s my kind of dinner!
I’ll be posting the 5 recipes over the next week or two with a final video and shopping list for all of them at the end of that time frame. So stay tuned for more of these coming up!
Recipe note: If you can’t find packages of frozen 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 like this Clean Eating Sheet Pan Chicken And Cauliflower recipe. 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!
