Spring Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner

Spring Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner

When spring finally decides to emerge here in the mountains I couldn’t be more excited. The fresh air, blooming flowers and longer sunnier days are simply the best.

When I think of spring dinners, foods with color fill my mind…bright salads, pastas loaded with veggies, plenty of dishes topped with eggs, and simple chicken dinners laden with my favorite spring veggies.

Today I’m sharing one of those simple chicken dinners, but with a Hawaiian twist! One of my most desired flavors is Hawaiian BBQ, it’s sweet and spicy, and I always pair it with fresh pineapple…my favorite!

Since weeknights are always hectic, I like to keep things quick and simple. Roasting the chicken, veggies, and pineapple all on ONE sheet pan makes for quick and easy cleanup. Yes, please! 

I like to serve this chicken with a side of steamed white rice and a simple Honey Lime Vinaigrette. It's the perfect healthy spring dinner that’s also packed with protein, veggies and even some fruit. But most importantly, this dish is packed with flavor! It has quickly become a favorite amongst my family. 

If you'd like to switch things up a bit, try replacing the chicken with salmon filets, and don’t be afraid to use a combo of your favorite veggies. Pretty much anything goes, just be sure to cut everything in similar sizes for even cooking.
