Sheet pan meals are my favorite! Don’t you love how easy they are to prepare? There’s so much less mess to clean up afterward, which means dinner comes together faster. They’re a weeknight winner, that’s for sure. Winner winner, sheet pan chicken dinner!

This recipe has all those warm flavors that get you in the mood for fall, right down to apples and bacon. The apples add a nice sweetness, along with the sweet potatoes.

How to Make Autumn Sheet Pan Chicken

All of these ingredients cook together at the same time on one sheet pan. You can even mix everything together if you want, right on the pan itself. To start, just put it all on the pan, seasonings and olive oil included, and toss it together with a big wooden spoon. Then, pop it in the oven. Voila!

Autumn Sheet Pan Chicken Ingredients

  • 2 fuji apples, chopped
  • 1 large sweet potato, diced
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 2 large chicken breasts, diced
  • 4-6 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar

  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp sage
  • 1 tbsp rosemary

How to Store Autumn Sheet Pan Chicken

Meal prep this to your heart’s content, or make it as a family dinner; it serves four. Once it’s cooked, it should stay fresh in the fridge in sealed containers for up to 4 days or so. Reheat in a 350-degree oven and you’re good to go.
You can also make this meal and freeze it, and then reheat it. Just defrost it in the fridge overnight before heating it up. Otherwise, if you cook from frozen it will take much longer.

Substitutions and Alterations

  • Feel free to use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. They’ll certainly stay moist more easily than white meat, and they’re a smidge cheaper than chicken breasts.
  • Regular potatoes would work here, too (we’re partial to sweets, though), and you can use pancetta instead of bacon. If you go that route, add the pancetta during the last 10 minutes or so of roasting.
  • Broccoli also works great in this flavor combination, as it’s also a cruciferous veggie like Brussels sprouts.
  • Fresh herbs are lovely in this dish, too, instead of dried. If you have fresh, by all means use them liberally.
  • Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, or Gala apples would work if you can’t find Fujis.

Tips for Sheet Pan Dinner Success

There’s a LOT of food here to cook at once. If you can fit everything on one large sheet pan, great. But if you can help the situation, don’t crowd the pan. It’s classic old-school cooking advice. In the case of sheet pan meals, if you crowd the pan, you run the risk of just steaming your food. That might be fine for chicken, but you probably want your veggies crispy, right?

In that case, feel free to split up the food among two smaller sheet pans. Trust us, you don’t want to pull a sheet pan out of the oven and wonder why it’s not all cooked yet!
