I’m on a mission to make healthy eating easy, accessible and delicious. It’s when I come up with meals like this that I know I’m right on track. It doesn’t get much easier than this as the ingredients for this lemon garlic chicken sheet pan recipe can be found in pretty much any grocery store and the combo of flavors is really tasty.

I don’t live in a tropical climate so I’m always super excited when spring rolls around because I know our local farmers market is going to start carrying a lot more options! Asparagus is one of my favorite spring vegetables. I personally LOVE roasted asparagus so I decided to build this meal around it. I complimented it with potatoes, chicken for protein and a lemon garlic sauce full of herbs, olive oil, maple syrup, lemon and garlic. So light and refreshing, perfect for spring!

How to Make a Sheet Pan Dinner

  1. The one essential item you need for a sheet pan dinner is: a sheet pan. Any ol’ baking sheet will do, but I have a large one that I like using for sheet pan meals because it gives the ingredients plenty of space to roast instead of steam! From there, I like to use a mix of protein and veggies to make up the meal. This recipe uses chicken breasts, asparagus and potatoes.
  2. One thing you have to be mindful of when you’re making sheet pan meals is how long it will take each ingredient to cook. For instance, with this sheet pan meal, I knew the potatoes would take longer to cook than the asparagus and the chicken so I roasted those alone for 20 minutes while the chicken marinated and then added everything else to the pan.

I am loving this combo of chicken, asparagus and potatoes AND the fact that everything is cooked on one pan so the clean up is a breeze!

      This is our go to sheet bake. Works with all kinds of veggies. Cauliflower, delicata squash, sweet potatoes, onions. Just scrumptious. Thank you for this. It’s my go to when I have loads of veggies to use up. Everyone loves the chicken. Even my pickiest!

      We loved this recipe. The flavor was excellent!!
      I do have a question though as I’ve made many sheet pan meals and have this problem every time with chicken…how do you prevent excess liquid when baking with the chicken? I always have liquid in the pan which prevents everything from crisping nicely.

        Yay!! So glad you enjoyed this meal, Adrienne. Chicken releases juices while cooking, so there isn’t much to do to prevent that. You could always place the other ingredients on a second pan if you wanted to separate them to help crisp them.

      I can’t even make it through to the recipes on this page. Ads are so bad. I currently have three going on my screen and can’t even see where I’m typing. Pointless to have a a website that is unusable because of all the ads. Ridiculous
