Sheet Pan Lemon Butter Chicken & Veggies (Paleo, Keto)

by | Jan 28, 2019

Sheet Pan Lemon Butter Chicken & Veggies is a delicious and easy meal that the whole family will love! Sheet pan meals are a quick way to get dinner on the table fast with little clean up since you’re cooking veggies and protein all on one pan.

Lately, I’ve been preparing meals for more than one hungry belly during the work week, so I’ve started to experiment with different ways of putting together healthy whole food meals that are easy enough to manage even with a busy schedule.

Sheet pan dinners have made it high on my list of go-to meals during the week and I’ll explain why …

Here’s what makes sheet pan dinners so great:

1. They’re quick to put together (unless you’re super slow at chopping veggies) and typically cook in under 35-minutes.

2. Clean up is easy since everything is being cooked (and can be prepared) on one pan.

3. It’s an easy way to cook for multiple people or cook enough so that you end up with leftovers for the busy week ahead.

4. The combinations of  meat/fish, vegetables and marinades are endless, so you’ll never get bored of sheet pan dinners.

5. Allowing your meats and veggies to cook together in a marinade (or just some simple seasoning) is a great way to achieve a flavourful end product.
