Sheet Pan Chicken Dinners

A sheet pan is a metal tray, with a lip all the way around. You may call it a baking tray, a baking sheet, a roasting tray, or something else. But no matter what you call it, they are a versatile piece of kitchen equipment and I love using them!

Most, if not all of them have the whole meal cooked together on the pan, so you don’t even have to worry about extra side dishes. Don’t you love it when recipes are easy?

In past recipes, I’ve called sheet pan recipes “traybakes” because the dish was cooked all in one tray… It’s so hard trying to keep track of the different terms that people use (and when you have a worldwide blog audience, it can make it tough!). However, the important thing with these chicken dishes is that they are cooked on (or in) one pan, making them easy to prepare, easy to serve, and require minimal clearing up!

Tropical Chicken Dishes

A cuisine I gravitate towards (as well as my own Mediterranean, Greek-Cypriot cuisine) is tropical – be it Hawaiian, Polynesian, or the Caribbean. There is something about the sweet, and spicy flavor profile, dishes from this region has, that I just enjoy. I hope you do too!

Chicken Curries

Bring some Indian spice to your chicken by preparing one of these great chicken curry recipes.

Slow Cooker Chicken

If you need to have a meal ready after a day out of the house, then a slow cooker will be your best friend in this scenario. Most slow cooker recipes require minimal prep, and many are literally just dumping all the ingredients into the pot and switching it on!

I will be adding to this list of easy chicken recipes over time, so make sure that you save this post to your Pinterest recipe boards so that you can always find them.
