Why Sheet Pan Meals are Convenient
One of the most common reasons y'all tell me you don't prep meals ahead of time is that you don't want to eat the same thing every day. In response to that, I say this sheet pan roasted chicken & veggies is a versatile recipe to add to your meal prepping routine because it's easily customizable. You can load up on veggies for meatless Monday, add extra chicken on days you need more protein, etc. This sheet pan meal can also be customized to fit any diet. Vegan? Replace the chicken with your favorite plant-based protein or even more veggies. (You'll also want use maple syrup instead of honey on the brussels sprouts.) Keto? Swap out the potatoes for a low-carb vegetable you like. I think you get the idea. On top of all that, it's delicious (peep the flavors above). Want more options? Try sheet pan power bowls next.

Tips for Making Sheet Pan Roasted Chicken & Veggies
- To roast your chicken & veggies meal all at once, you'll need a full sheet pan or two half sheet pans.
- One key to the success of a sheet pan meal is that all the components cook in the same amount of time. To achieve that, be mindful of the size of each component. In this recipe, cut the carrots and potatoes into pieces no larger than one-inch to ensure they cook at the same rate as the chicken and brussels sprouts.
- For crispy brussels sprouts, spread them out on the pan so that none touch.
- A major selling point of a sheet pan meal is easy cleanup. So be sure to use a non-stick pan or spray yours with non-stick spray before baking.
