One-Sheet Pan Pesto Chicken & Summer Veggies
One-Sheet Pan Pesto Chicken & Summer Veggies is the perfect fast & healthy go-to for when dinner time sneaks up on you! Juicy chicken, delicious veggies, and a flavorful pesto will make this dinner a regular on your family's meal plan.
School starts next week for us (!) but summer veggies are still going strong. Everywhere I looked at the farmer's market this week, I was seeing colorful tomatoes, squash, zucchinis and eggplants. True beauty and inspiration for a nourishing and flavorful recipe!
I really love a good one-sheet pan recipe. With their (typically) quick prep, minimal clean up and hands-off approach to getting dinner on the table, I'm quite smitten with all things that I can throw on a baking sheet and forget about in the in oven for 20-30 minutes while I go about my life. I love one-sheet meals almost as much as I love my slow cooker recipes.....almost.
And apparently you guys do too, since you guys have been asking me (in droves) to get more of them up on the blog! Apparently you guys don't like chopping, stirring or washing dishes either. Glad we are all in good company here.
One-Sheet Pan Pesto Chicken & Summer Veggies might be my new quick and favorite dinner. I don't know what is more exciting about when it comes to this meal. That it is only 5 ingredients. OR that it is cooked entirely on one sheet pan. Yep. 5 INGREDIENTS! Just when you didn't think it could get any better than quick and easy....I tell you that you probably don't need to go to the grocery store either. AND ANDDDDDDD.....hangs out in the oven for 20 minutes! *gasp*
Someone hand me a magic wand and call me Merlin....I've just made the most magical one-sheet dinner that comes together in a snap and that your family will love.
