Italian Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner Ingredients

italian chicken sheet pan raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need: 

  • 1½ pounds (approximately 5 (4.5-5 ounces) per piece) boneless skinless chicken cutlets
  • 1 pound baby gold potatoes
  • 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1½ cups fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed to bite-size pieces
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 (0.75-ounce packet) garlic & herb dressing mix (I used Good Seasons brand)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

SHRIMP: If you’re craving some seafood, substitute the chicken for 1 pound of shrimp. Reserve a small amount of the seasoning for your shrimp, and toss them in the seasoning and olive oil before adding them to your sheet pan for the last 15 minutes of cooking.

VEGETABLES: You can adjust the types of vegetables used for this sheet pan dinner to suit your tastes. Some good alternatives are zucchini, yellow squash, or fresh broccoli florets.  Just remember that if you are using softer vegetables to watch their cooking time. 

BABY RED POTATOES: Instead of baby gold potatoes, you can use baby red potatoes for this delicious dinner recipe. 

CHICKEN: I like to use the Perdue Perfect Proportions 1.5-pound bag of chicken breast cutlets for this meal. If you buy your boneless skinless chicken breasts in bulk they tend to be large and thicker. I would suggest that you cut them in half to make them thinner (4.5 to 5 pounds each) cutlets for even cooking. If you keep your cutlets on the larger side then you will need to cook them about 5 to 10 minutes before adding the vegetables and following the rest of the recipe instructions.

DRESSING MIX: I used the Garlic & Herb Dressing packet mix, however, you can substitute an Italian dressing blend or you can even use your favorite Italian balsamic dressing brand to marinate the chicken.

How To Make This Italian Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe

PRO TIP:

If you are feeding a large crowd, you can easily double this recipe and bake both rimmed sheet trays at the same time in the oven. You will just want to rotate the trays (from top to bottom) halfway through the cooking process for even cooking.

STEP ONE: Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. 

STEP TWO: In a medium-sized measuring cup add ½ cup olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and the packet of garlic & herb dressing mix. Combine well then add it to a Ziploc bag with the chicken cutlets. Seal the bag and let the chicken marinate while your oven is preheating and you prepare the rest of your ingredients.

STEP THREE: In a large bowl, add the baby gold potatoes, grape tomatoes, salt, black pepper, and the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Stir to evenly coat the vegetables with olive oil.

PRO TIP:

Cutting your potatoes all the same size will help them cook evenly. And cutting them into small, bite-sized pieces will make sure they cook at the same speed as the green beans.

STEP FOUR: Place your clean, large rimmed, baking sheet into the 400°F oven to preheat for 5 minutes. When you remove your baking sheet from the oven, add the marinated chicken cutlets, potatoes, and tomatoes in a single layer. Make sure to spoon any excess marinade onto the tops of each chicken breast. You don’t want to waste that flavor. Bake for 15 minutes.

STEP FIVE: In the bowl that had the potatoes and tomatoes, add the green beans and gently toss them around in the remaining olive oil that is left in the bowl. There’s no need to add any more olive oil.

STEP SIX: After the chicken has baked for the first 15 minutes, remove it from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 450°F. Add the green beans to the baking tray, carefully place them in the open areas between the other vegetables, and return to the oven for an additional 15 minutes.

PRO TIP:

Make sure the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F during cooking.

    I thought this was great! I did make some adjustments. I marinated the chicken for a few hours, grilled it(I used chicken breast, pounded it out…I always overcook & dry out breast in the oven). Then followed directions for the potatoes, tomatoes & green beans. When I added the green beans I also added fresh mushrooms. This was so good! Will make this again for sure.
