I love a good sheet pan meal. They're typically fresh, definitely easy to make — and the best part is they're easy to clean up. And the possibilities are endless, there are sheet pan recipes online with every diet in mind, including these delicious sheet pan recipes with chicken thighs.
But you can seriously do any protein and any veggie pretty much, whether your protein of choice is steak, or a plant-based protein in these vegetarian sheet pan dinners. There are sheet pan recipes for fall, and even Hispanic Heritage Month. There is literally a sheet pan meal for everything; all you have to do is search for "sheet pan recipes" on Pinterest and you'll fall down the rabbit hole of pins upon pins of recipes that are all made on one sheet pan, easy to clean up, and delicious. The perfect weeknight meal, y'all.
And what makes these sheet pan recipes with chicken thighs even sweeter? Chicken thighs are pretty inexpensive to purchase, and you know produce is usually less expensive than meat. So you have a delicious meal that will be healthy, filling, and may even produce leftovers for your family, all for an inexpensive price. Take that, fast food and takeout. So head over to your favorite grocery store, grab some chicken thighs and veggies, and check out these easy-peasy recipes.

2. Sheet Pan Roasted Chicken and Vegetables Over Herbed Farro
OK, I know, so technically the farro isn't in the pan. But it's so easy and this Sheet Pan Roasted Chicken and Vegetables Over Herbed Farro recipe from Brooklyn Supper is so delicious and beautiful, I had to include it on this list. You're roasting all of your root vegetables, leeks, and chicken thighs on the same pan, then in just one pot you make the farro. Not too shabby.

4. Mojo Sheet Pan Chicken
Look how gorgeous this Mojo Sheet Pan Chicken from A Cozy Kitchen is —almost too pretty to eat. Almost. I know she uses some drumsticks in here, but as long as the amount of chicken is 2 pounds, it should still work perfectly. The mix of citrus and olives seems like it would be odd, but trust me, it works.
