For a great weeknight dinner, give this one pan chicken and veggies bake a try. It's even easier if you use pre-cut vegetables!
I'm all about easy low carb chicken recipes to serve my family on busy weeknights. One of our favorites is my paleo friendly gluten free shake and bake chicken.
My family also loves to eat Filipino chicken adobo and I always make it with skinless boneless meat. In fact, that's the dish that's most requested by the picky eaters.
In my quest for simple weeknight dinners, I came up with a super easy one pan chicken and veggies bake recipe. Although I used broccoli and peppers this time, it's easily adapted to use any low carb vegetables.
My kids actually like to eat broccoli, but my husband does care for it. So he just eats the meat from this dish.
Unfortunately, my husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy. And, I don't buy or cook potatoes. But, he does like green beans so maybe I'll try that next time.
A zipper plastic bag is best for coating the seasonings onto the chicken and vegetables. If you don't like using plastic, you could use a mixing bowl instead.
I've started to use reusable zipper bags for many things, but I don't like to put raw meat in them. That's why I used a regular large zipper bag for this super easy one pan chicken and veggies bake dish.
When storing food, I never use plastic. I keep everything stored in glass containers or metal storage containers. Unfortunately, it's tough to find ones without plastic lids.
I've gotten away from plastic water bottles too. Instead, I fill up glass water bottles with filtered water from our well.
In the past, I've always liked to save clean-up time by lining the baking pans with aluminum foil. However, recently I've discovered that this isn't a good idea as the aluminum can go into the food when cooking as described here.
What I've found is that using a well seasoned cast iron baking pan or a stoneware baking pan works best. Things that stick to metal baking pans don't stick as much when using those.
So, you may not want to use aluminum foil for this super easy one pan chicken and veggies bake like I did. I've now switched to baking my sheet pan dishes in stoneware.
There's a tons of simple sheet pan dinner recipes out there. One of the other easy recipes I've tried is shrimp low carb fajitas.
When you don't feel like standing over the stove to cook, baking your meal in the oven is a great option. And, with sheet pan dishes cooking is a breeze.

Hey Lisa good morning I'm making this one pan chicken meals today looks good and simple thank you I will be posting a picture later
My husband insists on using boneless skinless chicken thighs, will this recipe still work?
It will but you may need to adjust cooking time.
I am thinking of trying this with half chicken thighs [small ones] and half legs. Do I need to change cooking time or anything to do that?
And can I make it in a paella stoneware [round, about 3" deep], or is that too deep to get the dish to come out right? Thanks so much, it sounds wonderful
It should be fine in the stoneware. If the chicken thighs are small it should cook in about the same time, but might need a little more time to fully cook. I've also found that things take a little longer to bake in stoneware.
Thank so much!
Can’t wait to give this a try! Thank you!
Hope this recipe makes dinner much easier for you!
Hi there. I'm very excited to try this recipe. Question: In step 6 it says "bake chicken drumsticks, broccoli, and bell peppers...continue baking chicken and broccoli". Does this mean I should take the peppers out before continuing to cook at the lower temp?
Sorry that wasn't clear. I continue cooking all and nothing is removed.
You say to wash chicken and pat dry. Recenty read many articles saying NOT to wash chicken because you can spread germs from spray and from hands.
Also I have a similar recipes that does not use so much seasoning with more vegetables, very good
Thanks for the tip! I actually don't do that so I'll delete that step.
Many other bloggers have an option to change the recipe measurement to the US system. It would be so awesome if yours had the same feature! Love you page and recipes, but a real pain and time consuming challenge to change all the measurements!
That's a great add-on. I'll see if I can get it.
