Sheet Pan Maple Apple Chicken + Veggies

I love making easy, one-pot meals. And since in my option, apple and maple make a dynamite flavor combination, I had to innovate on this easy, perfectly balanced sheet pan dinner. It features chicken for protein, tons of veggies, and a delicious homemade glaze. 

Ingredients for Chicken and Apple Sheet Pan Meal

Here's what you need for this flavor-packed dinner:

  • Chicken breast. I choose organic when I can find it1
  • Apples. I like Gala apples for this recipe, but any apple variety you like will work. 
  • Maple syrup. Use the pure maple for the best flavor.
  • Seasonings. The chicken is flavored with fresh garlic, smoked paprika, parsley, onion powder, dried oregano, dried basil, and dried thyme. 
  • Potatoes. I recommend russets for roasting. 
  • Broccolini. You could also use chopped broccoli florets. 
  • Carrots. Peel the carrots to remove any bitterness.
  • Brussels sprouts. Cutting the sprouts in half help them crisp up.

How to Make Sheet Pan Roasted Apple and Chicken

PREP THE CHICKEN:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.

Wash, pat dry, and season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, parsley, garlic cloves, onion powder, thyme, oregano, and basil, rubbing everything together until chicken is coated. Add the olive oil, maple syurp, and sliced apples, mixing together until combined. Set aside.

PREP THE VEGGIES:

In a bowl, add the chopped potatoes, broccolini, chopped carrots, Brussels Sprouts, olive oil, and salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes, mixing it until veggies are coated.

On the prepared baking sheet, add the chicken breasts in the center of the pan and add the veggies around the chicken, side by side---evenly spreading them out. Tuck the sliced apples in between the chicken and veggies and pour the maple syrup and seasoning mixture (that came from the chicken) unto the chicken and veggies.

Bake everything for 35-40 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked through and the potatoes are tender when tested with a knife or fork.

Storing Leftover Sheet Pan Chicken

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days. You can reheat lightly in the oven, microwave, or on the stove. Or, serve the roasted chicken and vegetables cold over a salad or in a sandwich for lunch the next day. And easy one-pan meal prep!
