Midweek Pick Me Up- Sheet Pan Dinner

Nurse Practitioner, Janey Bloom, shares her dinner secrets.. sheet pan dinner!

Let me introduce you to your new best friend- the sheet pan dinner. All you’ll need is a protein of your choice, some veggies, a pan, and about 30 minutes.

There are endless combinations when it comes to sheet pan dinners but here are a few of my favorites:

My go-to:

Chicken, broccoli, sweet potatoes

Heat oven to 400F

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper

Make 1 row of diced sweet potatoes topped with cinnamon and add to oven while you prepare the rest

Marinate/season chicken to your liking

Season veggies of your choice to your liking

Remove pan from the oven and make a row of chicken and a row of veggies

Sweet potatoes will need to cook for approximately 25 minutes, chicken and veggies 18-20 or until chicken is fully cooked.

Remove from oven, serve, and enjoy!

When I’m feeling fancy:

Salmon, brussels sprouts, blueberries

Heat oven to 400F

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper

Clean 3-4 salmon filets and place in row on parchment paper

Clean and chop brussels and place in row on parchment paper

Salt veggies and salmon and set aside

In bowl, mash 1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries, add ¼ cup olive oil, salt, petter, some basil, garlic, and 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Spoon blueberry balsamic mixture over salmon

Squeeze of lemon over whole tray

Bake for 15 minutes

Broil for 2 minutes at the end if you want extra crispiness!

When I want to stretch the leftovers:

Chicken, veggies, rice

Heat oven to 350

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper

Season/marinade chicken to your liking and place in a row on the baking sheet

Make a row of veggies next to the chicken (onions, bell peppers, squash, or zucchini work well for this)

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked through

Remove from oven and place over your choice of rice, top with salsa, avocado, sour cream, cilantro, etc.

The key to a great tray bake is to make it something you love! These are just some examples but feel free to substitute anything in the recipe with your personal favorites. If you try any of these or make a new combination on your own comment it below!
