Easy One-Pan Chicken Dinner Recipe That The Whole Family Will Love

I was inspired to make this by someone on TikTok who didn’t give the exact ingredients. That’s one thing I don’t love about videos of recipes. I need a piece of paper to look at, a good old-fashioned recipe.

This dinner is so quick, easy and delicious that I will be adding it to the list of easy chicken recipes to repeat. The best part of sheet pan meals is how quickly you can get them ready. This dinner takes about 10 minutes to prepare, but it doesn’t taste like it. It’s a creamy chicken dish that packs a big flavor punch.

For faster clean up you can line the baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. This is one of those easy recipes that anyone at any skill can make.

Ingredients:

To make the one-pan chicken, you can either use a sheet pan, baking sheet or a lasagna pan. Since I make most things in my Breville oven I made it in a lasagna pan. Be sure to spray the bottom with cooking oil to make cleanup easy.

  • Olive oil spray or a tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2lb chicken tenders or boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into pieces*
  • I package of garlic and herb Boursin cheese, cut into pieces
  • 1 onion roughly chopped (you can use yellow or red onion)
  • One pint of grape tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons of dried oregano (you can use fresh herbs if you’ve got them)
  • 1 teaspoon of dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

This is not a sponsored post about chicken, but it s a resource worth sharing. I started ordering chicken from Cooks Venture about a year ago. It is the best chicken, the chicken breasts are the most juicy chicken breasts I’ve ever had. I feel like the grocery store chickens lately are dry and tasteless. The CooksVenture boneless chicken breasts come in packs of two. The spatchcock chicken is AMAZING and the drumsticks are really good too.

Steps To Get It Ready for the Oven

Start by spraying your pan with oil. Spread chicken tenders or chicken breasts cut into cubes over the sheet. Cut up the Boursin cheese and spread it evenly over the chicken. Sprinkle the pan with garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, basil, red pepper, salt and pepper.

Bake at 425 for 30-40 minutes. In my smaller oven, the chicken is finished more quickly. Cook until the chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees. The top should be bubbly. I like for the tomatoes and cheese to get brown on top.

There is minimal cleanup if you’ve sprayed the pan before you start.

    Serving Suggestions

    My favorite way to serve this dish is over pasta. If you want gluten-free use Banza chickpea pasta (the best gluten-free pasta alternative). It pairs well with fresh veggies or a green salad. If you want more traditional side dishes try serving it with green beans with a touch of lemon juice.

    It freezes well, so make extra and keep it in airtight containers so you have an easy meal to grab on busy weeknights.

    This is a dish that can be served at any time of year, in the summer you can let it cool to room temperature and serve it over a bed or greens. I struggle every week to decide on a dish that the whole family loves, but this is an easy dinner for a busy night. You just set it and forget it.

    What if You Only Like Dark Meat?

    I don’t think this would be good with chicken legs, but you can use boneless, skinless boneless chicken thighs if you prefer dark meat. I would cut the thighs into pieces.
