Now that it’s finally cool enough to turn on the oven, I thought it was time to bring back one of my favorite easy dinner methods just in time for fall – sheet pan meals! I love sheet pan dinners because they typically only require a few minutes of hands-on time, and the flavor possibilities are endless. They are the perfect way to get a healthy, well-rounded meal on the table in minimal time. They are also the best solution for those days where you ran out of time to pick up groceries and need to make do with whatever’s left in the fridge!

My latest spin on the sheet pan meal is this curried chicken sheet pan dinner! It is actually based on this DELISH curried roasted cauliflower from earlier in the year. After tasting that recipe, I knew that the mixture we used to coat the cauliflower would be just as amazing on chicken!

For this curried chicken sheet pan dinner you’ll quickly marinate some boneless, skinless chicken thighs in a flavorful mixture of coconut cream, lime juice, and curry powder. This marinade will give the chicken a ton of flavor and lock in it’s moisture. Next, you’ll toss some halved carrots with lime and cumin, then bake them for a few minutes ahead of the chicken, just to make sure we don’t end up with under-cooked carrots or overcooked chicken. Once the carrots have cooked a bit, you’ll add the chicken to the sheet pan, and bake for 30 minutes until everything just begins to brown. Finally, you’ll garnish with cilantro and chopped peanuts for a bit of extra crunch!

This curried chicken sheet pan dinner is great as is, but if you’d like to stretch it a little further, you could easily add more veggies to this meal (think cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes, or even bell peppers) and bake them at the same time you put in the carrots. For a little extra starch, you could also serve this alongside some white rice, it’s totally up to you!
