12 Sheet Pan Dinners You’ve Got to Try ASAP
These sheet pan recipes are our go-to supper solutions for busy weeknights: they’re easy to prepare, flavorful, and cleanup is a breeze (just one dish!).
If you’re in need of a fuss-free weeknight meal your whole family will love, look no further than sheet pan dinners. The basic premise is simple: combine protein and veggies on a baking sheet and roast in a hot oven until the protein is cooked through and the veggies are tender. Chicken sheet pan dinners are always a hit—hearty vegetables like sweet potatoes and broccoli are a perfect pair for crispy, juicy chicken thighs—but we have plenty of delicious ideas for salmon, beef, pork, and (duh) pizza, too. Add a flavorful sauce, fresh herbs, and/or a squeeze of citrus for a quick and easy finishing touch.
Seriously, when the hardest part is preheating the oven, you know you're in good shape.
Sheet Tray Shrimp and Potatoes With Lemon
This hands-off dinner is one of our favorite weeknight meals. Bell peppers become deliciously sweet when roasted, and pair beautifully with tender baby potatoes and caramelized lemon slices. Shrimp only need about 5 minutes in the oven, so they’ll be added last.
