Healthy Weeknight Meals

We love one sheet pan meals for weeknights because they are easy prep and easy clean up. Plus, the meat and veggies cook at the same temperature in the oven. It doesn’t get much easier and all you have to do is swap out the meat or veggies and change up the seasoning to make your family think you went above and beyond for dinner that night. You can feel good about feeding your family and have more time to spend with them when making one sheet pan meals.

Our Favorite Meal Prep Dinners!

A lot of our recipes are designed to translate perfectly over to meal prep for the week! We’ve found that meal prepping has not only helped us stay accountable, but gives us more time to be productive with work and spend time with one another. Busy days call for meal prep, so I want to share some of our favorites with you!

  1. Macro Muffins and Egg Cups are the perfect grab and go breakfast!
  2. Our Keto Chili is the perfect work desk lunch or dinner for any night of the week.
  3. Keto Bread and Low Carb Rolls are the perfect side dish to amp up any meal or perfect for making sandwiches!

Any way you decide to meal prep, you can’t go wrong because you’ll always be prepared with a satisfying meal!

One Sheet Chicken Dinner For Four!

This meal doesn’t just feed one or two people. It feeds four, which means either everyone will be satisfied or you’ll have leftovers, and leftovers are never a bad thing! You can also double this recipe easily and spread it on to two sheet pans. If you do, however, the cook time will increase so definitely keep an eye on the veggies and chicken! If you make this one sheet chicken dinner for your family, tag us on Instagram and let us know what you think. 🙂

This One Sheet Chicken Dinner uses a flavorful peri peri rub and hearty brussels sprouts to feed and satisfy your family on busy weeknights!
