Broccoli, sweet potatoes and red onion come together with chicken sausage for a simple, healthy sheet pan meal that’s delicious and perfect for busy weeknights.

So many of you are requesting simple recipes lately… ask and you shall receive! Truth be told, almost all my dinner recipes are super simple so I’m glad we’re on the same page.

Why I Love This Sheet Pan Meal

I personally LOVE sheet pan dinners because you can throw everything onto one pan, bake it and voila! A delicious, healthy dinner is ready to go. PLUS you only have to wash one pan (and a cutting board). Score!

This particular sheet pan dinner doesn’t get much simpler. We’re using pre-cooked organic chicken sausage links. Dinner sausage, to be exact! I love the Bilinski and Applegate Farms brands! There are a ton of flavors to choose from so pick whichever flavor combo sounds the best! I usually go for the mild or spicy Italian, but have been eyeing the more “fun” flavors like cilantro lime or apples and honey. YUM!

Sheet Pan Meal With Chicken Sausage

I paired the chicken sausage with a bunch of roasted veggies. I chose sweet potatoes, broccoli, onions and garlic because they’re some of my favorites, but you can literally do any combination of your favorite veggies. And if you’re short on time, there is no shame in buying pre-chopped veggies to make this dinner even faster.

How to Serve This Chicken Sausage Sheet Pan Meal

You can eat this meal as is (just meat and veggies) or serve it over your favorite grain like brown rice or even quinoa. The dish has plenty of flavor on it’s own, but I topped ours with sriracha because I love a little heat. And if you know me, you know I basically top all things savory with hot sauce. It’s a thing.

Enjoy this healthy dinner the next time you think you don’t have time to throw a healthy meal together! I bet it will quickly become part of your weekly dinner rotation.

    I’m trying not to let my obsessive personality take over and make everything in sheet pan form from now on. This was simple, delicious, toddler approved, with minimal cleanup. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

    The perfect meal for our family — quick, easy, and my kids will eat every bite. I made this a few weeks ago for the fist time and my daughter said it tasted like fall, so I’m making it again for the first weekend of fall. I can see this on repeat for a quick and healthy dinner during the busy school year. Thank you!

    I have made this recipe many times! It is easy and FANTASTIC! I use butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes and usually add mushrooms. I season with salt, pepper, herbed olive oil, fresh garlic, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and Nature’s seasoning. We absolutely LOVE this one sheet pan recipe! Thank you!!

    1. Yay! I am so glad you are loving this recipe, Jess. Thank you for your review & star rating, I really appreciate it!

  5. I am reading through your ideas for baby prepping freezer meals and saw this one on the list! Do you have any suggestions on how to freeze it? Would you prep the meal, freeze it, and then cook it for the 1st time when you’re ready to eat it? Thanks! Love your recipes ^_^

    1. Hi Aylla – I would prep and cook the meal, let it cool and then store in the freezer until you’re ready to eat. To thaw, place it in the fridge overnight and then reheat!
