One Pan Ranch Chicken and Veggies Dinner

One Pan Ranch Chicken and Veggies Dish

Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Then take a sheet pan like this one that I have (it is fairly large to accommodate all the veggies and chicken) and spray it with cooking spray.

Now, take each chicken breast and rub it generously with 1 teaspoon of brown sugar per chicken breast.

The brown sugar melts into the chicken creating this delicious sweetness that you will definitely sit up and take notice of when the dish is done.

Now, take your carrots and peel them and then slice them into halves and set aside. Then take your new baby potatoes and halve those as well and set them aside.

Would it change the cooking time if the pan was lined with aluminum foil. Seems like that would help some if the mess.

I never thought of adding brown sugar to a ranch mix. I bet that tastes great!!

One sheet dinners are the best - easier clean up is a must in my book!

This is a great take on the one pot meals that are so popular. I particularly like the idea of putting brown sugar on the chicken and I will be trying that very soon.

I love one pan dishes. They are so simple and the cleanup is also a breeze. That Palmolive looks like it would help me out too!
