Sheet pan meals are my absolute favorite, they are so easy on prep and clean up! A perfect weeknight meal.
I always prefer to avoid cooking my food on aluminum or non-stick surfaces, so look for sheet pans that are made from stainless steel. I've had them for a few years now and still love them!
Sheet Pan Meals
Since one pan sheet pan meals are some of the easiest dinners there are, I've created a few of them! Check out these other recipes for more easy weeknight dinners: Sausage Sheet Pan Supper, Easy Beef and Broccoli, Kielbasa Bake, or Keto Nachos!
This meal is full of garlicky goodness, but to keep it easier, feel free to use pre-chopped garlic instead of peeling and chopping the garlic yourself. You can of course also use boneless chicken if preferred, but bone-in chicken will keep the chicken moist and juicy as it bakes, and the skin will do the same.
Add this to your list of weeknight meals! It's Whole30 compliant, and paleo. Some may debate whether green beans are considered paleo or not, but they are becoming more and more accepted. It's also gluten free, dairy free, and soy free.
What are coconut aminos?
Many people who are new to Whole30 or Paleo have never heard of coconut aminos. They're a condiment, and a much healthier (in my opinion) substitute for soy sauce. Soy wreaks havoc on your hormones and can cause so many issues, even some digestion issues. If you miss the taste, try some coconut aminos instead! The New Primal has my favorite version of aminos, as theirs is more umami tasting. Trader Joe's has the most affordable one I've found, but there's is sweeter which I don't prefer.
