How to Store Sheet Pan Chicken and Veggies

This is a classic meal prep that will keep in the fridge for up to 4 or 5 days. Reheat in the oven, tented with foil, until hot. (You can also use the microwave but that is sometimes a dicier proposition with chicken because it can get rubbery that way.

If you'd like to freeze the chicken and veggies, that's also possible. We like to use zip-close plastic bags for this job and then defrost the food in the fridge overnight before reheating.

Substitutions and Alterations

For this sheet pan recipe with chicken and veggies, you can make a lot of swaps.

  • Use chicken thighs instead of breasts.
  • Roast cauliflower instead of broccoli, or go for a classic—sweet potatoes or Yukon gold potatoes, perhaps.
  • Brussels sprouts are also great here, along with yellow squash instead of zucchini.
  • We'd recommend keeping the onion, regardless of what other swaps you make. So much flavor!
  • Skip the tomatoes altogether if desired.
  • Change the seasoning at will and add dried thyme, rosemary, or parsley, for example. Or incorporate fresh versions of any of those herbs to sprinkle on before serving.

It's never a bad idea to break up a sheet pan dinner onto two different pans if you load it up and things look crowded. This chicken and veggiges sheet pan dinner is pretty loaded! You want everything to cook evenly and the veggies to get a little color and if they're all close together, they'll steam and get a little mushy, rather than roast. It's still easy clean up with two pans and minimal prep equipment.
