CHICKEN SHEET PAN DINNER
If you are not making sheet pan dinners yet, then you are MISSING OUT! I probably make 2-3 sheet pan dinners a week. They are just so stinking easy, plus they make the cleanup process a breeze!
This Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner has the most amazing flavor, and I am sure we can thank the bacon for that. Hahaha! I have also made this Paleo and Whole30 meal without the bacon, and it was still delicious. But we all know bacon makes everything better! I prefer to use Nature’s Rancher Whole30 Approved Bacon that I pick up at Whole Foods.

How To Make A One Pan Chicken Dinner
- Cover your pan in avocado oil, coconut oil, or olive oil and half of your herbs and seasonings.
- Add your chicken and bacon cut into chunks and your veggies.
- Drizzle your oil over the top and add the remainder of your herbs and seasonings. Mix everything together right on the pan.
- Place in the oven and bake. You may want to mix half way through baking.
I use all organic and non-GMO ingredients when I can. I don’t list the ingredients out that way in the recipe card because it gets repetitive. It is good to buy locally grown when possible, and organic as often as you can if you are trying to limit your exposure to chemicals. For meats, we try to keep to free range organic for chicken, and grass fed grass finished for beef. We love buying our chicken and beef from our local farmers market when we get the chance to make it on a Saturday!
I try really hard to include as many nutrient dense foods in my families meals, throughout the day, as I possibly can. We almost always have a protein and several veggies with dinner. Then I pack in tons of green leafy veggies and colorful fruits with lunches, either in a salad or a smoothie. I try to get some veggies in with breakfast, but that only happens when they eat eggs, like in our Sweet Potato Hash over a bed of greens!

One Pan Chicken Dinner Nutrition Information
I always try to include useful tidbits about the nutrition you are eating in my recipes. In this chicken sheet pan dinner, you are getting tons of different nutrients. I will list a few interesting facts about the chicken sheet pan dinner ingredients below.
Free Range Chicken – I highly recommend you take the time to read this article on free range chickens and chicken eggs.
Brussels Sprouts – You’ll find nearly 100 studies in PubMed (the health research database at the National Library of Medicine in Washington, D.C.) that are focused on Brussels sprouts, and over half of those studies involve the health benefits of this cruciferous vegetable in relationship to cancer. This connection between Brussels sprouts and cancer prevention should not be surprising since Brussels sprouts provide special nutrient support for three body systems that are closely connected with cancer development as well as cancer prevention. These three systems are (1) the body’s detox system, (2) its antioxidant system, and (3) its inflammatory/anti-inflammatory system. Chronic imbalances in any of these three systems can increase the risk of cancer, and when imbalances in all three systems occur simultaneously, the risk of cancer increases significantly. Among all types of cancer, prevention of the following cancer types is most closely associated with intake of Brussels sprouts: bladder cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, and ovarian cancer.
Sourced From WHFoods
Sweet Potatoes – Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus.

Rosemary – Fresh rosemary has a very high reserve of vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, thiamin, folate, as well as minerals like magnesium, calcium, copper, iron, and manganese.It has abundant antioxidants in its phenolic compounds such as diterpene, carnosol, and rosmarinic acid, as well as in its essential oils such as cineol, camphene, borneol, bornyl acetate, α-terpineol, and α-pinene.
The herb has high dietary fiber. It is low in cholesterol and sodium but high in saturated fats.
Sourced From Organic Fats
Pink Salt – Pink Himalayan salt is a much more balanced and healthy choice in comparison to common table salt. True, high-quality pink Himalayan salt is one of the purest salts you can find. It’s even typically mined by hand. This is very different from table salt that involves a great deal of unnatural interference. Table salt is very heavily processed, eliminating its minerals. Commercial table salt is typically 97.5 percent to 99.9 percent sodium chloride. Meanwhile, a high-quality unrefined salt like Himalayan sea salt is only about 87 percent sodium chloride.
With most table salts, you’re only left with one mineral (sodium), some added iodine and most often some really health-hazardous anti-clumping agent like yellow prussiate of soda. Many commercial table salts also undergo a bleaching process and contain aluminum derivatives and other terrible ingredients known to be highly toxic to human health.

- 2 Medium Sweet Potatoes
- 1 Medium White Onion
- 2 Tbsp Fresh Rosemary
- 1 tsp Pink Salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cover your pan in half of your olive oil, seasonings, and herbs and spread evenly.
Cut your chicken and bacon into chunks. Cube your sweet potatoes, cube your onions, and cut your brussels sprouts in half. You can also just cut your chicken into halves (this will help keep it moist), we cut into chunks because it is easier for the kids to eat and we don't have to cut everyone's chicken up to eat.
Spread your meat and veggies over the pan and mix evenly.
Drizzle olive oil over the top and add the rest of your seasonings evenly. You can up the amount of seasonings if you wish.
Place in the oven on middle rack and bake for about 20 minutes.
Nutrition Facts are not always 100% accurate. As it depends on the brands and varieties used.
I love using Nature's Rancher Whole30 approved bacon that is available at Whole Foods. Look for the one that has the Whole30 symbol on the package.
