Love simple sheet pan meals?

Then you’ve gotta try out this delicious chicken pesto bake loaded with roasted veggies, basil pesto, and chicken. I love sheet pan meals because you can just throw everything on a pan, and bake a complete meal super easily! This chicken pesto version is my family’s favorite sheet pan meal right now, and the best part is only one dish to wash!

This one pan meal is very versatile and gets bonus points because it can be pretty low in carbs depending on what you add!  Easily customize this dish by using veggies your family prefers and ones that fit your dietary needs. We’ve even added small potatoes with the veggies and that version is delicious too.

Tip: Feel free to make your own basil pesto, or use a store bought version. We love the prepared pesto from Costco! It’s very good and also convenient to use in other easy meals like sandwiches, pizza, pasta, ravioli, etc.

Additional Notes

*Recipe idea heavily adapted from cookingclassy.com

I think homemade roasted veggies and chicken are so comforting and one of my favorites to make at home. If your family loves pesto, than this easy dinner is a must try. My kids were telling me last night as we ate it that “Everything tastes better with pesto, even vegetables..” 😀

There are so many variations this pesto bake could work well with including sliced Italian sausage and peppers, and even sliced pork tenderloin instead of chicken. I like that you can just grab veggies from the fridge that need to be used up as well.

This is such a delicious, quick and easy dinner idea!
