The school year might be upon us, but the weather is still warm and it’s not quite time to simmer a pot of chili on the stove! With routines kicking back into gear we can all use easy dinner recipes. Have you tried any of the popular sheet pan recipes that have been floating around social media? Those are PERFECT for busy nights! You can whip them up quickly and if you line your pan with foil or parchment paper, clean up is a breeze. What makes them perfect for this late summertime is that they utilize all the great veggies you find this time of year at the market.
My mother-in-law recently shared this recipe for chicken thighs with green beans and red potatoes that’s drizzled with a lemon dressing and we gobbled it all up- even the picky preschooler! So I thought I’d share the love with all of my sweet friends at Creating a Great Day in case you are in need a delicious and simple dinner recipe!
Lemon Chicken and Veggies Sheet Pan Dinner:
4-5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 lb small red potatoes, quartered
1 lb fresh green beans
3 TB Olive Oil
2 TB Fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 TB Italian Herb Blend (Or combine a TB of your favorite dried herbs such as rosemary, basil, oregano, and thyme)
- Arrange veggies and chicken on sheet pan.
- Combine oil, lemon juice, and garlic with herbs, salt, and pepper.
- Drizzle oil blend on chicken and veggies and use your hands to coat everything well with the oil.
- Roast at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes.
- Serve with crusty bread, which you can dip in the oil from your pan. 🙂
I hope your family enjoys this sheet pan dinner as much as we have!

This looks really good. I’m going to try this. My husband love chicken thighs and I am bored with my recipes.
We love chicken thighs too! Hope this one is a winner for you!
This dish sounds really yummy. My family doesn’t eat potatoes, though. I wonder if I could make it work with some pasta instead? Maybe cook the chicken separately and then toss the noodles with the juice.
It would definitely be good with some pasta! I’d either leave out the salt or use less if you leave out the potatoes. You might try adding some yellow summer squash too!
Yum, I love quick recipes like this, thanks for sharing.
They are great to have on hand!
Yummy! And SO easy! Looks fantastic! Thank you for sharing! I think I will make this later in the week. I already have the ingredients! 🙂
Love it when it works out the way! Hope you like it! 🙂
I’m not big on sheet pan dinners… especially with my family of six. But I’m sure glad you found one that works for your family.
I can understand that as it’s hard to fit enough for a crowd on a sheet. You could always try meat on one pan and veggies on another. Or have your hubs grill the meat and roast the veggies inside. Chicken thighs grill up really quickly!
This sounds delicious. I just love green beans
Me too! Nothing like fresh!
I love a quick and simple meal!
They are handy!
Sheet pan meals are such an easy and time saving dinner idea! I’ve tried a similar recipe in the past but I think it’s time to try again
Roasting brings out such great flavor in the veggies too!
Wow, this dinner looks really good, and it seems do-able, since it has ingredients that I already have in my house!
Great recipe, I’ve been wanting to try sheet pan dinners. Seems so much easier all the way around from start to cleanup!
This looks amazing! I love chicken but I’m guilty of preparing it the same three ways every time, this looks simple enough to make on a busy week day but like a fresh twist for my family:)
Love how easy this looks! I’m all about fast dinners once school starts back up 🙂
This sounds great! I love sheet pan recipes!
It looks easy enough for even this kitchen-challenged person to make! 🙂
Looks like a delicious recipe!!! I always think of Everybody Loves Raymond when I see lemon chicken! 😉 I think my husband would really like this!
This is one of my favorite meals. So yummy and healthy. Thanks for sharing!
This sounds so yummy! I am always looking for good chicken dinners!
Sheet pan dinners are my thing lately! Less clean up. Will be trying this!
This looks perfect for my dinner tonight. I have one of those busy days where I know I won’t be home in time to make anything that requires a lot of time and intensity. Thank you so much for the great idea! Now I won’t just be eating cold cereal for dinner – ha!
