Healthy Chicken Sausage & Roasted Veggie Sheet Pan Dinner

This kind of might feel like a weird recipe leading up to Christmas. But if you guys are anything like me, you’re a) short on time and b) trying to eat kind of a little bit healthy before we dive into the debauchery of December.

Sheet pan dinners are crazy popular right now and for good reason–they’re one-dish  and hands-off, they’re quick, and clean-up is a breeze. So if you’re running in 5,000 directions over the next few weeks, you can still eat your veggies. It’s a miracle.

To get started, slice some chicken sausages (right now, I really like the Chicken Apple Smoked Sausages–this is the Sam’s Club brand and I think they’re just as good as the name brand),

chop a pound of Brussels sprouts in half, and peel and cut a sweet potato into 3/4″ chunks and place them on a lined baking sheet.

  1. I used green beans, yukon gold potatoes and kielbasa. It was so good! Love things like this that can be easily adapted in many delicious ways!

    1. Thank you for posting that! I love this idea but we aren’t a fan of Brussels sprouts or sweet potatoes so it’s great to know it worked out for you.

  2. Made this last night. It was a hit with the whole family including my super picky 2 year old! This is making the dinner rotation this winter!

  3. We were just talking about what we can do to avoid making Thanksgiving to New Years one long feasting holiday. I’m all for feasts, but I also still need to fit into non-yoga pants! Adding this to the menu…thank you for posting it!

    1. Update: My kids all had their favorite parts. I couldn’t believe how that worked out–trading the sausage for Brussels sprouts, and sweet potatoes for pomegranate seeds? So funny! But they all found something they really liked (this is a HUGE deal!) and I was happy to have a healthy meal on the table during the “debauchery of December”! 😉

    1. You can just cut up a pomegranate or, this time of year, you can find little cups/tubs of pomegranate seeds/arils near the prepared fruit in the produce section.

  4. I must be living under a rock because I haven’t seen a sheet pan dinner before! I may have to mix it up a little to use what I have, but this does look fun to try. Thanks for the great idea! This combo sounds yummy! I will have to add it to my shopping list.
