What Makes This Easy Sheet Pan Chicken Sausage Recipe So Good
- It’s right there in the name – this recipe is so easy! The most work you’ll have to do is chopping your sausage and vegetables. After that you toss everything in some herbs, then transfer it all to a baking sheet and your oven will take it from there.
- This meal is jam-packed with nutrients. You’ll get tons of vitamins from the sweet potato, broccoli, bell pepper, and onion while fueling up on protein from the chicken sausage. There really is no healthier/easier meal.
- You can totally customize this recipe to your liking. Use whatever veggies you prefer or have on-hand. Also, any flavor of chicken sausage will work – so go ahead and use your favorite!
Key Ingredients for Sheet Pan Chicken Sausage
Chicken Sausage – I used chicken and apple sausage, and oh wow was it yummy! But really any sausage will work in this recipe. You could even use traditional pork sausage if you’d like.
Sweet Potato – Any variety of sweet potato will taste incredible. If sweet potatoes just aren’t your thing, then you can swap them out for white or yellow potatoes. My one recommendation here is making sure you chop your potatoes into even-sized chunks. This will ensure your entire meal cooks evenly.
Red Onion – You guessed it, any onion will work! I prefer red onions for their more mild flavor. Though if you love a spicy onion, use a white or yellow onion in its place. However, if you don’t like onion, leave it out!
- Try not to overcrowd your sheet pan. The sausage and veggies can be close together, but I wouldn’t recommend stacking them. This will help crisp up the edges of your sweet potatoes and sausage.
- If you have leftovers, then store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days. To reheat I like to warm a tablespoon or so of oil in a pan over medium heat, then add in the leftovers and sauté for just a few minutes or until warm.
- Chop your vegetables and chicken sausage into even pieces so that it all cooks evenly. I recommend nothing larger than 2 inches, and not smaller than 1 inch.
