If there is one question that can make me cringe some days, it’s hands down this one: “What’s for dinner?” The funny part? There are no children in our house that are of speaking age, so you know who I’m talking about here.

For some reason, thinking up dinners night after night can be exhausting. For one, after a long day, the thought of putting more energy into making dinner doesn’t sound quite as relaxing as propping your feet up with a nice glass of wine. The thought of grabbing takeout sounds tempting but doing that too often can be a downer for your wallet. Choosing what to actually make can sometimes turn into a battle against the moans and groans as you list each option to your partner, spouse, family, or whomever will be eating. As for skipping dinner? Well, that’s just not an option.

So regardless, dinner time is coming, and you’ve got to have a plan—a good one, a simple one, one that will give you the most for the least amount of work. Look no further friends, the answer is here, all in one little pan.

When you want to make a good dinner, with not a lot of effort and very few dishes to clean up, then you want to make a sheet pan dinner. One pan. One meal. That’s it. These irresistible chicken dinners are full of flavor and sure to make everyone happy—especially whoever’s turn it is to do the dishes tonight. All you have to do is toss everything on the pan, bake and serve. Now THAT is a dinner that will win any night of the week. Check out these delicious options!
