Easy to Prep, Cook, and Clean
One-pan meals rock.
You just need, well, one pan, and that makes clean up so easy, plus the cooking part is simple too.
This particular sheet pan meal just requires you to peel and chop some veggies, chicken, and herbs and mix with some olive oil, place in the oven, and roast for 30 minutes.
It's a full meal – protein and sides, all snuggled together in a delicious pile.
Tasty Mediterranean flavors combine chicken with a wide variety of nutrient-dense veggies.
Tip: Have picky family members or family not on a strict diet? Make some rice to go with this as well – that may appease those that want that starchy side. (You can even make rice for yourself if rice is part of your diet)
It's also a “Dump and Go” Freezer Meal
I'm a HUGE fan of easy freezer meals, especially ones where you don't even need to cook the ingredients first.

This luckily is one of those! You can just peel and chop the veggies and chicken and throw them all in a freezer-safe container or bag with the rest of the ingredients and then place in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Then when you need it for dinner, simply thaw overnight in the fridge and then throw on the sheet pan 30 minutes before dinner!
See the exact directions for how to freeze this below.

Sheet Pan Mediterranean Chicken and Veggies (Paleo, Whole30, AIP)
- 1 lb boneless skinless Chicken Thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks
- 2 lb Sweet Potatoes peeled and diced
- 4 Carrots diced
- 1 medium Zucchini diced
- 4 cloves Garlic peeled and sliced thinly
- 1 cup pitted Kalamata or Green Olives no pimentos if on AIP
- 1 tbsp Rosemary fresh or dried, chopped
- 1 Lemon quartered (peel still on)
- 1/4 cup Olive Oil
- 1 tsp Sea Salt
Also Needed Day of Serving (don't freeze):
- 4 cups Arugula optional
- Balsamic Vinegar for drizzling
- Olive Oil for drizzling
- Sea Salt to Taste
IF FREEZING FOR LATER:
- Put all of the ingredients (except for day of serving ingredients) into a gallon-sized freezer bag and massage a bit to mix.
- Label the bag and lay flat to freeze. Freeze up to 3 months.
IF NOT FREEZING
- Mix the ingredients (except for day of serving ingredients) in a large bowl.
- (If frozen) Thaw the ingredients overnight in the fridge.
- Preheat the oven to 425 F. Pour the ingredients onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked all the way through (an instant-read thermometer inserted in the middle of the chicken will say 165 F).
- Serve a huge scoop of the cooked chicken and veggies over a bed of arugula (if using) and drizzle with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and sea salt to taste.
