I love sheet pan dinners because I’m all about easy, tasty, flavorful meals that are ready in 15 minutes like this one.

The chicken is tender and juicy and infused with lovely lemon flavor from both lemon slices that are nestled underneath and from the lemon pepper that’s sprinkled on top.

It’s also a skinny dinner. Bonus points for that during swimsuit season. Lean protein, veggies, naturally gluten-free, score.

What Kind Of Vegetables To Use

I used green beans and red onions because the beans are seasonal and I had a red onion on hand. The green beans are perfectly crisp-tender which is just the way I like them.

MY OTHER RECIPES

But you can switch that up and you can mix and match based on what your family enjoys. Try broccoli, sugar snap peas, bell peppers, mushrooms, or go with pineapple like I did in this teriyaki version.

Cheese And Sauces – Your Choice

To keep this a skinnier meal and allow the lemon pepper flavor to shine through more strongly, I held off an adding a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, a spoonful of minced garlic, or a drizzle of soy sauce or chili garlic sauce, but they would all be great if you choose.

Family-Friendly Weeknight Dinner

Because the recipe is made on a sheet pan, cleanup is as easy as tossing away a sheet of foil. The less dishes I have to do on busy weeknights, the happier I am.

The school year is here and these are the types of family-friendly weeknight dinners that save my butt.

Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

  • 1 large lemon, sliced into thin rounds
  • about 1.25 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and halved
  • 1/2 of one large or 1 medium red onion, sliced into strips or small chunks
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons freshly ground lemon pepper seasoning blend
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • fresh parsley, optional for garnishing
  • optionally finish with Parmesan cheese, garlic, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, etc.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easier cleanup, and add the lemon slices evenly dispersed around the baking sheet.
  2. Add the chicken, green beans, onions, evenly drizzle with olive oil, evenly season with lemon pepper, salt, pepper, and bake for about 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables have some golden color. Toss the chicken and vegetables (leave the lemon slices on the bottom) halfway through baking to ensure even cooking. Cooking time will vary based on the thickness of the chicken and being that this is quite a hot oven, check early and often so you don’t overcook the chicken which dries it out.
  3. Optionally garnish with fresh parsley and finish with any of the optionally suggested items. Recipe is best warm and fresh but extra will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 5 days.
