Sheet Pan Curry Chicken and Vegetables
Why make dinner on a sheet pan?
We love sheet pan recipes for so many reasons! They are simple to prepare, do not require hands on cooking time and are packed with flavor! Yes, there are a few steps to follow in these recipes, but aside from mixing a few ingredients together or chopping a few vegetables, the cooking process is mostly hands-off! This means that while dinner is baking in the oven, you can get ahead on some household chores or spend some times with the family instead of standing over the stove babysitting a recipe. Check out the tips below to make sheet pan cooking a breeze.
Tips for sheet pan cooking:
- Read the recipe all the way through (of course) and plan to use a timer! Most recipes require different cooking times, so make sure to use a timer so you can truly walk away from the oven and not have to worry about when your adding anything in to the oven.
- Do the prep ahead of time: Cut vegetables, make sauce or mix spices the night before or that morning if you are looking to speed up the process when it comes time for the actual cooking.
- Use parchment paper to make clean up a breeze.
- Use the correct size sheet pan. When we say sheet pan we are referring to the rimmed half sheet pan which is 18″ by 13″. The size of the sheet pan matters because you do not want to overcrowd the pan when cooking, so if you are using a smaller sheet pan you may need to use 2 to achieve the same result.
