Substitutions

We love chicken and veggies, especially when they’re roasted together with yummy seasonings. All families seem to have certain vegetables they enjoy more than others, so here are some veggies you can include in your sheet pan, in case the ones I’ve used aren’t your favorites.

Asparagus – Cut each spear into 3-4 pieces.

Broccoli – Broccoli is incredibly yummy when roasted. Even if you don’t normally like it, you might enjoy it in this recipe.

Cauliflower – Chop into large pieces.

Brussels Sprouts – Cut into one in half.

Carrots – Small coins about 1/2 inch thick should roast up nicely.

Sweet Potatoes or White Potatoes – Chop these into small chunks so they have time to cook. Alternatively, you can par-boil or microwave these until they’re almost done, then add them to the sheet pan to crisp up in the oven.

Mushrooms Use small button mushrooms whole, or cut larger mushrooms into smaller chunks.

Any other veggie you love – This recipe is very forgiving, so you can include all kinds of different vegetables. Just consider their cook time to decide how large or small they should be cut.

Recipe Variations

Feel free to get creative with your sheet pan chicken and veggies! Here are a few variations to inspire you:

  • Asian fusion: Swap the Greek dressing for a teriyaki or soy-based marinade, and replace the Italian seasoning with a blend of ginger, garlic, and sesame oil. Serve with steamed jasmine rice for an Asian-inspired twist.
  • Spicy kick: If you love a bit of heat, sprinkle some red pepper flakes over the veggies or drizzle hot sauce over the chicken breasts before baking. This adds a fiery element to the dish that will leave your taste buds tingling.

Tips and Recipe Notes

  • I love to grab some Greek olives from the olive bar at my local grocery store. If not, the jarred containers of Kalamata olives are my go-to. Always make sure the olives are pitted.
  • Using the broiler at the end is an optional step but it gives your veggies this beautiful browned look and crisps the chicken for some extra flavor. 
  • Serve this with a dollop of store-bought Tzatziki sauce for a fresh flavor.
  • If using bone-in chicken thighs for this recipe, I recommend placing your chicken in the oven 15 minutes early, then adding the veggies and cooking until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • Feta is optional to garnish with. I purchased a block of feta cheese and cubed it, but you can also buy crumbled feta ready to sprinkle on top.

How to Store Leftovers

If you find yourself with leftovers, you can save them for another day.

  • Refrigerator: Place the leftovers in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Freezer: To freeze the dish, place cooled leftovers in a freezer-safe container or resealable bag. They can be stored for up to 3 months.

How to Reheat

To reheat your sheet pan chicken and veggies, place them in a preheated oven at 350°F for about 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Alternatively, you can microwave individual portions for a quick lunch.

Can This Recipe Be Made Gluten-Free?

Yes, this recipe can easily be made gluten-free by reading the labels to make sure the ingredients used are free from gluten. Check the labels of the Greek dressing, olives, and any other packaged ingredients for gluten-free options. Additionally, if you’re serving it with rice, make sure to use gluten-free rice.

FAQs

How can I make this recipe vegan?

Instead of chicken and feta, use beyond meat or another meat alternative, as well as dairy-free cheese. This recipe will also work great if you leave out the meat and cheese.

Can I use bottled Italian dressing instead of Greek dressing?

Yes, you can. However, it will give the dish a very different flavor. I recommend bottled Greek dressing if you don’t want to make a fresh dressing, as it will offer a similar flavor.

Is this recipe good for someone on a Keto diet?

Yes, the Sheet Pan Chicken and Veggies recipe can be suitable for a keto diet with a few modifications. Skip the rice, since it’s high in carbohydrates. Adjust the vegetable choices, to be low-carb options. Use a keto-friendly dressing, and monitor the portion sizes.
