Ingredients Needed to Make Lemon Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner 

I am a mom and usually busy, which means I want easy dinner solutions. I found that sheet pan dinners can help me create healthy meals for my family. 

Red Potatoes – You will want to make sure you cut Into 1-inch pieces. This will make the potatoes cook easier on the pan in the oven. 

Avocado Oil Cooking Spray – I always have this cooking spray on hand, it helps ensure the food doesn’t stick to the pan. 

Salt and pepper- If you’re going to cook a sheet pan dinner, then you need to have salt and pepper. 

Thin Asparagus Cut – Go ahead and cut into 1-2inch pieces. Again, you’ll be glad you have smaller pieces because then it will cook more evenly. 

Chicken Breasts Cut Into Cubes – Chicken really makes this meal complete! Buy it on sale and you can make as many sheet pan dinners as you’d like. 

Garlic and lemon – Don’t forget to add garlic and lemon to this recipe. It helps add flavor! 

The next time you’re looking for a simple dish to make for your family, give this sheet pan dinner a try. The lemon chicken is satisfying and you will be able to get those veggies in the bellies of your family.
