Ingredients needed for one pan chicken and veggies:
Here are the basics for this easy sheet pan dinner. The marinade recipe for the chicken can be found in the printable recipe down below, as always.
- Chicken - marinated in a balsamic/garlic marinade
- Broccoli - can be fresh or frozen
- Carrots - fresh or frozen
- Zucchini - definitely fresh! Frozen ones tend to have a rubbery texture.
How to Make Sheet Pan Chicken and Veggies
- Prep the marinade for the chicken, and let the chicken rest in it for 10-20 minutes before baking.
- Preheat the oven to 375 F.
- Pick and prepare 3-5 veggies. I used broccoli, red potatoes, onions, carrots, and zucchini, but the options are endless.
- Line the pan for easy cleanup and oil up and season those veggies! This will prevent drying out while baking.
- Remove chicken from marinade, place on pan with veggies and bake for 30 minutes.
- Drizzle with balsamic glaze and enjoy!
For the chicken marinade I used balsamic vinegar, brown sugar (honey works well also), salt, pepper, garlic powder, water, and onion powder. You can also make your own balsamic glaze by reducing balsamic vinegar on your stovetop, but I buy it and use it on everyyyyythiiiiing. Salads, veggies, steak, on and on.

- Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with tin foil for easy cleanup. Spray with cooking spray.
