Sheet pan recipes are perfect for everyone from busy families to amateur cooks. The idea is that an entire meal can be prepared on one cookie or baking sheet leaving you with minimal clean up. Here’s 8 of our favourite:
1. Sheet Pan Roast Chicken Thighs with Fennel and Potatoes
Sheet pan dinners are all the rage and with good reason. An entire meal can be cooked on one sheet leaving you with minimal clean-up.
2. Sheet Pan Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetables
Skip the takeout and go straight to the oven with this sheetpan version of chicken and vegetable teriyaki. Customize by swapping out the vegetables to make your very own.
3. Baked Chicken Nachos with Tomatillo Salsa
Nachos have become a Canadian favourite. This dish is easy to make and offers enough protein for a main dish meal. Corn chips/tortillas count as a whole grain. Green tomatillo salsa has a citrusy, herb flavour and the jalapeno peppers add a touch of heat.
4. Asian Chicken Wings
These addictive Asian-inspired wings are sticky and delicious. Make sure to have lots of napkins on hand when you make this recipe!
5. Boneless Buffalo Hot Wings with Vegetable Sticks and Blue Cheese Dressing
Here is a simple and delicious method to make healthier, lower priced "wings" with boneless chicken thighs. This recipe also works very well with bone-in drumsticks.
6. Roasted Rosemary Chicken With Maple Pears
So few ingredients and so much appeal! And you won’t find an easier way to marry ripe pears with herbed chicken. Tuck baking potatoes and peppers or squash in the oven at the same time and you wind up with a no-watch dinner that’s superbly healthy. The maple syrup, of course, will certainly up its appeal for the younger crowd.
8. Mediterranean Olive Loaf
Bursting with lusty olives, this intriguing tasting loaf takes less effort than burgers to make, and there’s no worries about sticking around for sauteing – it’s totally hands-off baking. Like most meat loaves, it’s a noble companion for mashed potatoes. Made ahead it’s a cool stand out at summer picnics, pot lucks and in lunch box sandwiches.
