Sheet pan dinner recipes are a busy parent’s best friend. Aside from ordering in or heating up a frozen meal (and we’re not knocking those pinch-hitting strategies!), it’s the easiest way to get dinner on the table, fast. Just chop up a protein and some veggies (which you can do in advance..), add seasoning or a glaze, and roast in the oven. Here are the basic steps you’ll need.
1. Choose Your Veggies
Pick fast-cooking choices if you want dinner ready ASAP. These include zucchini, onion, broccoli or green beans. If you go for root veggies like potatoes or carrots, add another 5 to 10 minutes of cooking time in before you add your protein.
2. Choose Your Protein
Salmon, chicken or tofu—whether you want to serve fish, meat or a vegetarian dish, there are endless options!
3. Add Seasoning
For most of the proteins/veggie combo, roasting at 375 for between 15 and 20 minutes should give you the perfect, fast meal. For exact cooking times and full recipes, click here.
