Sheet Pan Ranch Chicken & Veggies
This Sheet Pan Ranch Chicken & Veggie recipe is so good!
Are you looking for something healthy and easy to make during the week?
I wanted to share this meal with all of you mainly because it’s so simple and tasty. There is something about roasted vegetables that I absolutely love. In this dish, each piece has a slight ranch flavor, but it’s not overpowering. When you’re ready to eat, just make sure to scoop up one of the roasted garlic cloves and put it on your plate. Mmm, you’ll thank me later.
What’s not to love with a meal that you can quickly make by cutting up some vegetables, chicken and then arranging them on a sheet pan like puzzle pieces, then sliding it in the oven.
Let’s be honest, those kinds of meals usually involve something processed and buried in our freezer. This meal my friends is made with fresh wholesome ingredients.
When the time is right, you just might be able to find some of these ingredients right in your garden. All you need is 2 chicken breasts, a variety of vegetables and the only processed part of this meal is 1 packet of the dried ranch seasoning with some olive oil. My favorite part is how quickly this meal comes together and the fact that you only have 1 pan to wash.
I don’t know about you but lately, I feel like I have zero time to prepare meals. With the kids at home now, my time is limited these days. That’s why this meal is so perfect! As I said, this meal only involves 1 pan. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
I’m really digging these sheet pan meals.
This week we had Cauliflower Tacos, and now this meal. With all these sheet pan meals, I’m still wondering why I’m ending up with a pile of dishes. Hmm…Oh, yeah that’s right…the joys of us all being home together and eating 3 meals a day. Can you relate? Haha.
Thank goodness we have a deep sink, and the ability to get some takeout once in a while through all this. I guess you have to look for the positives. To be honest, I’ve been truly loving all this family time even with all the stressful moments!
So back to this yummy sheet pan meal. Let me fill you in on how you can make this easy recipe.
Sheet Pan Ranch Chicken & Veggies
Serving size: 4
Prep & Cook time: less than 1 hour
Feel free to add more chicken or veggies if your feeding a larger family
First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees and gather your ingredients.
- 8 small red potatoes- wash and slice in half
- 4 carrots peeled & cut in half then in half again
- 1 onion cut in small chunks
- 2 chicken breasts each cut in thirds (feel free to add more)
- 1 dry ranch packet
- Olive oil
- 1/3 of a head of cauliflower- cut in pieces
- 4 cloves of garlic to roast whole
Now prep your ingredients by washing and slicing your veggies and arranging them on a sheet pan like this.
Now add the chicken. Cut each chicken breast into 3 pieces and add them to the sheet pan.
In a measuring cup add 1/4 of a cup of olive oil, then sprinkle in 1 hidden valley dry ranch packet and combine it.
Next, drizzle the mixture evenly on your chicken and vegetables.
Toss them and make sure everything is coated. I drizzled on even more olive oil just to make sure everything was coated with some oil.
Now place your sheet pan into your 400-degree oven for 30 mins.
You’ll want to increase the temperature after 30 mins to 450 degrees for an additional 10-15 mins. That will encourage browning.
Now you’re ready to eat. We added a salad to our meal and it was delicious! Simple but so good! If you enjoyed this recipe, please share it with a friend! Thank you!
