One thing you may or may not know about me is that I love to cook.... and eat! Cooking meals for my family and friends has always been one of my favorite things to do. I have always been the one to bring a dish to share, whether it was to a get together with my girlfriends or for the girls on my daughters' lacrosse teams in between games. My goal is to always make meals that are not only delicious, but good for you too! Using fresh ingredients, lean protein and lots of flavor is key.

I do love to cook, but I don't love being in the kitchen for hours preparing a meal. I take shortcuts whenever possible, without compromising the flavor or nutrition, that's why this quick sheet pan dinner is one of my go-to's! One pan dinners are the best - easy to throw together and easy to clean up. A win win! Add this recipe to your upcoming meal plan, you will LOVE it!!


  • About 1 lb. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. Olive Oil
  • 1 Small Head of Broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 Bell Pepper, cut into about 1" pieces
  • 1 Red Onion, cut into about 1" pieces 
  • 1 Tbs. Minced Parsley, chopped for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment paper (this makes clean up super simple!)
  2. Place chicken breast in middle of the pan and sprinkle with the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and half a tablespoon of olive oil.
  3. In a large bowl, combine all the cut veggies. Drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of oil. Season with salt and pepper and thoroughly toss to coat.
  4. Arrange the veggies around the chicken in the sheet pan.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken reaches 165°F, and veggies are tender with a slight crunch. Allow the chicken to sit for a few minutes before slicing it.
  6. Garnish with chopped parsley.

This meal is loaded with so many good-for-you nutrients, and the great thing is its so versatile!! Be creative! Change up your seasonings - I love to use cumin and chili powder or Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese. And substitute veggies too! Carrots, sweet potato, zucchini, green beans, asparagus - literally anything goes! I hope you all give this easy meal a try soon and love it as much as I do!

Let's live EVER BETTER™ - together!!
