Have I mentioned that I’m obsessed with sheet pan dinners?! I am. They’re so stinkin’ easy to throw together- it’s basically a toss it in and forget it kind of meal, which is perfect for a busy mom like myself. You can definitely look forward to more of these one pan dinners in the near future, but for now, I’m bringing you this chicken parmesan version.

Chicken parmesan has never been a big hit at my house, mainly because I’m the kind of person that always wants to go easy on the sauce. So having the ability to control how saucy this ended up was perfect! Also, I loved being able to serve it up with the squash (not having to dirty another pan) and then eating it with a big side salad. We left the dinner table feeling full and satisfied without eating plate full of pasta- low carb meal for the win! ????

My one teeny trick for you with this recipe (and with most sheet pan recipes) is to heat your pan in your oven while it heats. It’ll leave whatever you toss on it nice and crisp instead of soggy. Works like a charm every time. I hope you fall in love with this dish, it’s the perfect no-fuss meal!

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp oil - divided
  • 1 egg
  • 2 chicken breasts - filleted
  • 2 large zucchini - sliced
  • 1 medium yellow neck squash - sliced

Instructions

    I love that this is a sheet pan dinner! So simple to put together and I love less dishes to do. Also, this meal has all of my favorite foods. The chicken was so tender and the squash was perfectly cooked.
