Super Simple Dinner

We love sheet pan meals for busy weeknights and meal-prep Sundays!

I love an easy meat and veggie tray bake because they make busy nights so much simpler. Just toss all of the ingredients together, spread them out on a sheet pan, and bake! This recipe is the perfect choice for preparing ahead of time,  too! All you need to do is throw it in the oven at the beginning of the week and pack it up into individual servings for a simple, low-carb lunch or dinner. For a heartier meal, you can serve it with a delicious and healthy grain such as brown rice or a yummy Quinoa Salad.

The Perfect Low Carb Dish

Slide this simple tray bake into the oven for an easy weeknight dinner.

If you are on a low-carb diet (or even the keto diet) this tasty chicken and brussels sprouts tray bake is a wonderful option. At 11 grams of carbohydrates per serving, it will keep you well within your daily carbohydrate limit. That said, if you need to keep carbs low but still want to add some volume to this recipe, try pairing it with a low carb side like our Creamy Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

The Benefits of Brussels Sprouts

If weight loss is your goal, this ultra-healthy meal is a great option.

Brussels sprouts are a powerhouse of nutrients including fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Known as tiny cabbages, these round leafy vegetables have a delicious earthy taste and are especially decadent when roasted. They are known to be beneficial for bone health and heart health. Just be aware, these are very fibrous veggies so take caution if you have any digestive issues. If you can’t tolerate brussels sprouts (or they’re just not your thing), we suggest swapping it out with zucchini or broccoli.

Delicious Dinner in Less than 30 Minutes

Lean, protein-rich chicken and healthy veggies make for one nutritious meal.

You’re just two steps away from a delicious dinner! Start by tossing all of the ingredients together. My favorite way to do this is by combining everything in a baggy and literally tossing the bag to make sure all of the ingredients are well covered. This also breaks up the brussels sprouts a little bit so that you get those nice crispy pieces. Of course, you can combine everything in a bowl instead, if you don’t want to use a plastic bag.

From there, you’ll lay pour the ingredients onto the prepared tray and slide it into the oven. Bake the chicken and brussels sprouts for about 25 minutes at 400 degrees F. Once the chicken is fully cooked (you’ll want to use a thermometer to check that it’s reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit) and the veggies are nice and browned, your tray bake is ready to serve!
