No need for complicated dinners during the week around here. My afternoons are consumed with the kid’s sports and coaching. Cooking sheet pan dinners make life just a little easier, especially cause there is only 1 dish to wash afterward! Who loves doing the dishes anyway, not me! 

Being completely honest, throwing in the rosemary was a last-minute decision.  As a matter of fact, Fall meals call for fall flavors therfore rosemary was the perfect addition to the marinade! It was absolutely delicious!! Sheet Pan Rosemary Honey Chicken with Roasted Veggies is a FAMILY FAVORITE! Don’t let dinner stress you out, make this delicious Sheet Pan Rosemary Honey Chicken with Roasted Veggies. Truly the perfect weeknight dinner with all the perfect autumnal flavors, eating seasonal has never tasted this good!

Recipe Tips:

  •  Create an even layer of veggies across your sheet pan, do not overcrowd the pan. 
  •  Choose veggies you like. Cauliflower, onions, broccoli, squash, asparagus, and potatoes are also great choices. 
  • I used boneless & skinless chicken thighs. You can use skin-on just brown the skin in a skillet before adding it to the sheet pan. 
  • If you don’t have honey you can sub maple syrup. 
  • Eat as is and keep it low carb or serve it with some noodles or rice.

Chicken Street Tacos

Mexican Street tacos are one of my favorite foods! I love how easy they are to make and my family goes crazy for street tacos. There is no marinating necessary just a simple dry rub for the chicken thighs and your ready to grill. Serve on a warm tortilla and top it with cilantro, onions and the very best Chipolte Crema!

I love cooking chicken on my cast iron grill style pan because it always comes out perfect. There is nothing quite like street tacos. The combination of the perfectly grilled meat, zesty toppings, and finger-licking good sauce result in the ultimate meal. The flavor of these street chicken tacos will keep you coming back for seconds, thirds, maybe even fourths! My entire family loves these tacos and they can be served as a taco bar and have everyone customize their own or they can be prepared.

Use boneless chicken thighs they are always more tender and juicy than the breast. Traditional street tacos are simple no need to over complicate things. Top them with fresh cilantro onion and the very BEST chipotle crema. The creaminess of this sauce is the NEXT LEVEL. You can put it on any kind of taco and it will taste amazing. There is no wrong way to eat a taco however I highly recommend you never skip the spicy chipotle crema!

Gluten-Free Parmesan Chicken Cutlets

Honestly, what is better than a tender, crisp, golden-brown chicken cutlet! Gluten-Free Parmesan Chicken Cutlets can turn into the perfect chicken parmesan or star as the main dish at any meal.

Chicken Cutlets is a Gluten-Free dish everyone in my household loves. Serve it up with your favorite side dishes and you got yourself an insanely delicious meal. I believe anyone can make these and everyone will love them. The technique is simple, dip the chicken cutlet in almond flour, next dip in the egg, and lastly the panko mixture.

There are a few things you can do to ensure your success with chicken cutlets:

  1. First make sure your cutlet is not to thick, pound it out, baby! Pounding the chicken will keep it thin and also tenderize it.
  2. Second, don’t buy preseasoned panko, season it yourself! Fresh herbs are a game-changer do not sell yourself short!
  3. Seasonings and fresh herbs bring so much life and flavor to a dish.
  4. Lastly, do not forget the cheese!! More cheese.. even better, in my opinion, ha!

You can slather these chicken cutlets up with marinara and mozzarella for the most amazing chicken parmesan ever!! You’re going to love these guys!! They are a great weeknight meal option for the entire family!

Teriyaki Chicken and Rice Bowls

Teriyaki Chicken and Rice Bowls take 30 minutes to make and are the perfect weeknight dinner for the whole family. On busy nights this is my go-to meal. A beautiful blend of chicken, carrots, broccoli simmered in a homemade teriyaki sauce and served over a bed of rice. Your next dinner is only 30 minutes away.

Isn’t it the best when all parties in your home love dinner. I do have one child that usually has something to say before every dinner even before she even takes a bite. That is unless its something like cupcakes or ice-cream. Happy to announce that this meal has my most opinionated child stamp of approval, in fact, she asked me to make Chicken Teriyaki again, winning!

I grew up competitively swimming and I must say at every swim meet there were teriyaki chicken bowls and they were my favorite thing about swim meets, ha! Swimmers, I think we can all relate teriyaki bowls and cup o’ noodles, are a swim meet snack bar staples! As I got older and more into eating clean I learned of all the added sugars and nonsense added into a bottle of pre-packed teriyaki sauce. I promise to give you the best quality ingredients in this sauce. I used agave for sweetener but feel free to sub for honey or coconut sugar.

You can make this low carb very easily by throwing it over some cauliflower rice or having it as a lettuce wrap. If you’re looking to beef up these bowls cook up some frozen egg rolls to go along with the bowls.

Can I Make This With Frozen Vegetables?

YES! But cook the veggies first to avoid a watery bowl. Feel free to add in your favorite veggies I love adding steamed cabbage!

Do I have to cook the chicken stovetop?

Nope! Feel free to use the grill just keep the chicken whole. In a pinch, use could even get away with using ground chicken or rotisserie chicken!

Tips for Success:

  • Don’t use excess salt coconut aminos is salty enough, you can easily over salt this by using salt.

  • Add in your favorite veggies red bell pepper, cabbage, and sugar snaps are great additions.

  • Leftovers: Due to the nature of agar-agar powder it will become jello-like in the fridge but don’t fear will liquefy once it’s heated again!
