Sheet pan dinners have changed the cooking game for moms and dads across the world. You can easily put all of the ingredients on one sheet and be on your way.

When your family is craving Italian, but you are tired of eating the same old thing over and over again, give this meal a try. You are going to love it. 


1. What type of chicken should I use? Bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs or breasts work great for this recipe as they stay moist during roasting.

2. Can I use different vegetables? Absolutely! This recipe is incredibly versatile. You can use bell peppers, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, or any other vegetables you have on hand.

3. What Italian herbs should I use? Typically, Italian seasoning includes a blend of herbs like basil, oregano, rosemary, and thyme. However, feel free to use your favorite herbs or a pre-made Italian seasoning mix.

Tips and Tricks:

  1. Cut your chicken and vegetables into uniform sizes to ensure even cooking.
  2. Arrange everything in a single layer on the sheet pan to ensure proper roasting.
  3. Halfway through the cooking time, toss the ingredients for even browning and flavor absorption.
  4. Line your sheet pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.

Potatoes – When you don’t know HOW to use up those leftover potatoes, this sheet pan meal is an excellent idea. 

Asparagus – I really enjoy how you can add veggies to this meal. If you don’t like asparagus, try a different veggie.

  2. Spicy Italian Chicken: Sprinkle some crushed red pepper flakes for a fiery kick.
  3. Mediterranean Twist: Swap out the potatoes for sliced eggplant and add some olives and feta cheese for a Mediterranean spin.

Common Problems and How to Avoid Them:

  1. Unevenly Cooked Ingredients: If some components are overcooked while others are undercooked, it’s likely due to inconsistent sizing. Ensure all ingredients are cut into similar sizes for even roasting.
  2. Soggy Vegetables: Overcrowding the pan can lead to steaming instead of roasting, resulting in soggy veggies. Make sure there’s enough space for the heat to circulate properly.
  3. Lack of Flavor: Marinate the chicken and season the veggies generously. Also, tossing the ingredients midway through roasting will help enhance the flavors.

Topping Options:

Finish off your sheet pan dinner with a sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, a squeeze of lemon juice, or fresh herbs like basil or parsley for added freshness. A drizzle of balsamic glaze can also add a sweet-tangy finish.
