Parmesan Crusted Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner
Parmesan Crusted Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner is one of my favorite week night go-to’s!
I don’t have a lot of time to plan dinner during the week, so sheet pan dinners can be so helpful on busy week nights. I threw this together within 45 minutes (including baking time) and the family loved it! Even our stubborn, picky 2 year old loved this parmesan crusted chicken sheet pan dinner. While I don’t typically write about food/recipes, I do write about making mom life easier – and this recipe does just that. This specific recipe feeds 2.5 people (2 adults, and a child).

Parmesan Crusted Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner Ingredients –
-2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
-1 vidalia onion
-5 red potatoes
-Bag of broccoli
–Garlic and Herb seasoning (I use this one for every single chicken dish I make)
-Salt and Pepper
-Oil (we use canola)
Parmesan Crusted Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner Prep –
The idea of this recipe is to cook on one pan, but I don’t know how to NOT cook for an army, so I put the veggies and potatoes on one pan, and the chicken on the other pan.
The prep for this dinner is:
-Preheat oven to 375 degrees
-Butterfly chicken breast
-Prepare broccoli – whatever this means for you. I used frozen broccoli florets that are typically supposed to be microwaved, and it turned out fine. Again, I’m all about ease – not perfection!
-Crack 2 eggs in a separate bowl, mixing yolk around/scrambling eggs
-Oil of your choice (we use canola oil) on your pan(s)
Cooking Process –
-Place chopped potatoes mixed with onions on half of one sheet
-Place broccoli mixed with onions on the other half of the same sheet you put potatoes on
-Drizzle oil over potato/broccoli/onion mix, add salt and pepper
The veggie/potatoes are ready to be cooked, but I place everything in together. Now to start on the chicken! I personally save the chicken part until last, because it can get messy!
-Dip butterflied chicken in egg, covering the whole piece of chicken
-Then, dip egg covered chicken in parmesan crust mixture
-Place parmesan crusted chicken on oiled sheet pan
-Cook at 375 for 30 minutes
*** If you like your veggies and crusted chicken crispy/ slightly browned, bump up heat to 400 degrees for 10 minutes after you have cooked for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.
Hope this helps you with an easy dinner solution on a busy week night.
