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.

One Pan Chicken Pesto and Veggies

Grab a sheet pan, and make this easy roasted pesto bake for dinner!

Serves: 4-5

Prep Time: 10 minutes


Cook Time: 25 minutes



  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto
  • 12 oz. fresh brussels sprouts, trimmed, cut
  • 10 oz. fresh cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup fresh asparagus, chopped
  • 1.5 pounds raw chicken breast, chopped in one inch pieces


  • Step 1:

    In a large bowl, stir veggies and 1/4 cup pesto to coat. Place on a large sheet pan. (Cover sheet pan first with parchment paper for easy cleanup.) 

  • Step 2:

    Season chicken with salt & pepper. Coat chicken with 1/4 cup pesto, and add to the sheet pan.

  • Step 3:

    Bake at 400 degrees for about 24-30 minutes until chicken is cooked and veggies are tender.

Additional Notes

*Recipe idea heavily adapted from

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!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
