There is no more straightforward and simple way to make dinner than on a sheet tray. Preheat the oven. Prepare your sheet with some oil or parchment paper. Chop, toss and season your veggies. Marinate or season your protein: chicken, beef, fish other. Pour the veggies onto the pan, top with protein, bake and serve with whatever sides you choose.
This Chicken Fajita Sheet Tray is a terrific dinner and is inspired by an Isabelle Smith recipe on Delish, one of my favourite main course sources. It’s particularly easy to make when you’ve rushed home and want something wonderful ASAP. It goes great with Spanish rice and beans: refried or baked it’s up to you! It’s comes together quickly, is truly delicious and doesn’t break the calorie bank either.
