Is there anything better than sheet pan dinners? One pan = one dish to wash… Need we say more?
All kidding aside, if you haven’t made a sheet pan meal, here’s why we love them:
- Easy to prepare
- Easy to clean up
- Great for meal prep or busy weeknight dinners
- Minimal equipment needed (no pots, pans, etc.. just one baking sheet!)
We can tend to make the same sheet pan meals over and over again, (this Maple Mustard Chicken is my favorite!) but I like to switch it up from time to time.
I rounded up 25 Healthy Sheet Pan Dinners from my foodie friends. All of these are paleo sheet pan dinners, meaning they are gluten free, dairy free and have no refined sugar.
Many of these recipes are also Whole30 friendly – but we have a whole post on 25 Easy Whole30 Sheet Pan Dinner Recipes you can check out if you’d like.
Before I share all the recipes, I wanted to share some tips for making sheet pan meals.
Tips for Sheet Pan Meals
Try to have some variation of flavor – It can be tempting to just toss the same marinade on everything, and sometimes I do this. However, I do try to mix it up a little bit. Spices are a great way to make a one pan meal taste like it’s got a variety of flavor.. for example, you can toss one veggie in garlic and a different one in rosemary and pepper. Both equally delicious, but different!
Parchment paper> aluminum foil. I love using my reusable silpat baking sheets, but if you’re in a time crunch and want to toss your liner after baking, NOTHING sticks to parchment paper in my experience.
You don’t want to waste time trying to pull stuck food off of foil… parchment paper is way better! (One thing to note though, if you’re going to be broiling for more than 3-4 minutes, parchment paper can burn.)
You can add your food in at different times. Sometimes a meat, potato and veggie can’t all cook at the same time. That’s why I like to add things in at stages. For example.. green beans and chicken don’t take the same amount of time to cook.
So you can cook the chicken for 15 minutes, then add green beans to the sheet, and bake for another 10ish minutes.
Don’t over crowd the pan! If you over crowd the pan, you’re gonna end up with a mushy mess!
You need to have some space around the pan for air to flow and get everything perfectly cooked. This large baking sheet is great for sheet pan meals.
