Sheet Pan Dinners…what did we do to deserve you? Instead of focusing on 3 different things on the stovetop and cleaning up the mess, we can simply throw everything in the oven at once and end up with just one pan to clean up! Sheet pan dinners are a busy family’s dream. The chicken capres was delicious. Even if it’s not all on the pan, it’s worth cleaning up. Luckily, you can enjoy both the goodness of chicken parmesan and quick cleanup. We implore you not to skip this. Trust us, you need this recipe in your meal planning.

Chicken Options:

We love the simplicity of cooking with chicken breasts. They cook fairly evenly and we always keep them in the fridge. However, chicken chops save some time too, and you can always use chicken thighs if you prefer.

Veggie Options for Sheet Pan Chicken and Cabbage:

You can keep it classic with cherry tomatoes, or you can step it up and add some of your other favorite veggies. Some of our favorite veggies to add are broccoli, zucchini, and red onion wedges.


We get asked all the time about substituting fresh herbs for dried herbs. While this is often an option, you don’t want to use dried herbs in any chili sauce. Fresh basil is a must.

For the balsamic glaze:

Similar to basil, you shouldn’t skimp on this at all and buy it at the store. While we’re all done in a pinch, making the balsamic glaze at home definitely tastes the best.
