This quick & easy Chorizo Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner is a perfect, hearty recipe for a weeknight dinner idea.
I discovered this super yummy Chicken Sheet Pan recipe one day when I was watching chef Jamie Oliver on a talk show.
I had never heard of “Sheet Pan Dinner” until that day, and I was so fascinated, I grabbed a piece of paper, wrote down the recipe, and made it for dinner.
My family LOVED it – and it has become one of our favorite recipes.
Chorizo Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe
Ingredients you’ll need:
- 2 small sweet potatoes
- 2 small baking potatoes
- 1 red onion
- 2 colored peppers – any color
- cayenne pepper – optional, to taste
- 2 1/2 oz. chorizo sausage (about a 3 inch chunk)
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 chicken bouillon cube
- 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary
- 2 Tbl. vinegar (any kind)
- 1 1/4 cups boiling water
- 3 boneless chicken breasts – cut into large chunks
Step 1: The Chorizo Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner recipe starts by chopping all the vegetables into 1 1/2 inch chunks and lay in the bottom of a large sheet pan. Sprinkle with cayenne, salt & pepper.
If you don’t have a large sheet pan, you can use a large baking dish like pictured above. However, I do prefer making this recipe in a large stoneware sheet pan. It makes the veggies crisp up a bit more.
Also, feel free to substitute vegetables if you don’t have the exact ones listed. Don’t have potatoes? Carrots would work fine, too. And on the day I took those pictures, I didn’t have peppers. But, it still turned out delicious!
Step 2: Prepare the Chorizo “tea”
In a blender, blend together the chorizo, garlic, bouillon cube, rosemary, vinegar, and boiling water. Be sure the lid is on very tight, and cover the top with a tea towel in case it leaks.
Step 3: Pour the chorizo liquid onto the veggies in the sheet pan, and top with chicken chunks.
Step 4: Cover tightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Then uncover and cook for 30-45 minutes more – or until the veggies are tender and chicken is fully cooked.
