Easy Sheet Pan Dinner Recipes-Baked Chicken and Roasted Vegetables

It is hard to believe I was in the Reynolds Real Mom competition over 5 years ago.  Time flies.  I have updated this post with better photos and tips so you can enjoy an amazing weeknight meal with very little clean up. 
This Crispy Chicken with Oven Roasted Potatoes recipe was created years before the trend of Sheet pan dinners.  Don’t fret about dinner, we have you covered with all these amazing weeknight dinner ideas. 
I am Maria Long from Close to Home and welcome to my kitchen. I am excited to share with our most favorite and versatile Reynolds product, Reynolds Wrap Parchment Paper. Today I am going to show using Parchment Paper, you how I can make a full dinner, including dessert, with minimum clean up.

Easy Sheet Pan Dinner Recipes-Elegant Meal with Limited Clean Up

Baked Chicken Sheet Pan Recipe 

For starters, we are making one of our family favorites,Crispy Baked Chicken off the Reynolds Kitchens Website. It is a great alternative to fried chicken. By using Reynolds Parchment Paper on your baking pan you have nothing to clean up.
You can prep these chicken breasts while you wait for the oven to heat.  Better yet you can prep them the night or morning before and just cover them in the fridge until you are ready to preheat the oven.
Just look at all the yummy melted cheese and chicken drippings left on our plan. No worries about scrubbing this off. Just throw away the parchment paper.
Your scrumptious main dish is ready to be served!

Now for the Sheet Pan Roasted Potatoes & Broccoli

We made the recipes on two separate sheet pans in order to have enough to feed our family of 5.
Another wonderful recipe from Reynolds is the Oven Roasted Potatoes. . This is really not a good description for this recipe. It really is like a double stuffed baked potato on your plate.
How can you say no to Potatoes, bacon, and cheese all made on one baking sheet and more importantly watch how it comes off. This would be stuck to any baking sheet and a nightmare to clean up.
Not tonight ladies and gentlemen, we are getting off easy. It just slides right onto your serving platter. We added some fresh broccoli to our dish to bump up the veggie count.

Easy Baking Tips

Think you don’t have the time or energy to make dessert tonight? In less than 1 hour you can make this flourless chocolate cake. 
 No frosting involved and made in a single dish. By using parchment paper on the bottom of our cake pan, clean up once again is just rinsing out the pan. It also will just slide out onto your cooling rack, no sticking to the bottom and wrecking your hard work.
So as you can see three baking pans is all you need to wash off. No scrubbing or scraping off caked-on food. More importantly, dinner is served and you are not exhausted.
