Lemon garlic sheet pan meal with chicken, potatoes and asparagus. Topped with lemon slices.

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!

      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

      I made this for dinner tonight and it was a total hit! I have 2 teen boys and a husband who all like different things, but this meal was one everyone liked. It was quick and easy to prepare, with limited dishes for clean up (always a bonus!). This will definitely be in our regular rotation!

      Made this for dinner tonight. Only thing I did different was used 2 chicken breast rather than 1 1/2 lbs of chicken and it was so good. My husband loved it and said to definitely make it again. So easy.

      Made this for dinner last night — could not have been easier to prepare or more delicious. Since we did not have maple syrup, we just added extra EVOO to replace the missing volume in the marinade. It was probably lacking the sweet aspect the syrup brings, but we thought it was still phenomenal. We also turned the broiler on at the end of the ~20 minutes of cooking to brown everything a little bit more! Probably broiled the pan for 6-8 minutes while watching intently to ensure nothing charred lol. The exteriors were crunchy and well-roasted which is exactly what we were going for. 10/10 and would make again! Wonderful recipes from here as always.

      Since I tend to like things “saucier” than most, I actually doubled the sauce, though I did not double the garlic. It turned out great, was so easy and quick to put together. I will definitely make it again. I might back off the tiniest bit on the black pepper. And I don’t have a large sheet pan, so I had to use two. Still easy clean up though.

      This was a great recipe, but you need to be a fan of black pepper. It struck me as tasty with a bit more spice than I am accustomed to, my husband loved it, and my six year old said we needed to use less pepper next time-too spicy! I used a blend of baby carrots and sweet potatoes along with the asparagus. After a bit of whining and having me wipe off the carrots with a paper towel, he gobbled it down with the rest of us. Just to keep it kid-friendly, I will be making this meal with 1 tsp of black pepper next time. I hope we grown ups don’t regret it!

      That’s good to know that you need to be aware of how long each item will need to cook and put in the ones that need more time first before adding more. This is helpful since I’m trying to find some healthy, easy meals I can make for my kids since I work. I’ll have to find some cooking blogs with sheet pan recipes so I can get an idea of what to cook and how long to cook it.
