Sheet pan with cooked chicken and a variety of veggies on it.



Homemade meals are the best. Doing lots of dishes, not so much. Takeout and delivery meals were a go-to for many during the dark days of the pandemic, but now the appeal is starting to wane. The answer? Sheet pan dinner. With one pan (and maybe a bowl or two), you can have a complete dinner in minutes with minimal cleanup. Here are some ideas to get you started, but feel free to let your creativity run wild. 

Crispy Fish & Bok Choy

  • Salt and pepper 4-6 oz filets of firm white fish like cod or halibut.

  • Mix some mayonnaise with seasonings you like (wasabi paste, Sriracha, ginger, garlic, scallions) and spread on fish.

  • Top fish with panko bread crumbs.

  • Cut bok choy in half lengthwise, toss with oil, and season with salt and pepper.

  • Bake at 425 degrees. Test fish for doneness after 12 minutes. 

Flank Steak & Potatoes 

  • Rub flank steak with your favorite dry rub, or marinate with flavorful sauce or liquid (soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, red wine, steak sauce).

  • Cut potatoes into 2-inch pieces or use small potatoes. Toss with oil and salt and pepper and place on sheet pan. 

  • Add or substitute hearty vegetables like broccoli or brussel sprouts.

  • Cook potatoes/veggies at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until tender. Remove from pan.

  • Place steak on pan and broil on high for 5-7 minutes on each side. 

Chicken Caesar-Style

  • Combine grated parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, a little garlic and a little olive oil to make a crumbly paste. 

  • Pat the mixture on chicken breasts and place on sheet pan.

  • Bake chicken at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes. 

  • Meanwhile cut a whole head of romaine lettuce in half lengthwise. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Place on the pan with chicken and return to oven until chicken is cooked – about 5 more minutes. 

  • Serve with lemon wedges.
