Nothing beats a dinner that is done in under 30 minutes, and even better when it's all cooked on one pan! This easy chicken sausage and veggie sheet pan is everything you need on a busy weeknight. Five ingredients. One pan. Dinner is served.
This is one of those recipes that acts like an "SOS - I need dinner on the table now!", and is perfect all year long.
I have a few of these recipes on this site, like my tuscan chicken (recipe), creamy spinach pasta (recipe), and now this sheet pan dish. You won't believe how easy this is from start to finish!
What do I need for this recipe?
Sheet pan dinners don't usually incorporate many ingredients, and this recipe is a perfect example. You are just six ingredients away from your new favorite dinner rotation.
- Chicken Sausage: I like using Aidell's brand, Bilinski, or AmyLu, but you can use whichever brand you have on hand!
- Asparagus: Be sure to buy thicker asparagus than the thin ones. The thinner they are, the more likely they will cook too quick and burn.
- Fingerling Potatoes: I love how bite size these potatoes are, and they have the best little snap when you bite into them. YUM!
- Olive Oil
See the recipe card below for specifics about quantities.
How do I make this recipe?
For this recipe, there's only a few simple, easy to follow steps!
Preheat the oven to 375º and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
For the potatoes: toss in a small bowl with a tablespoon of olive oil and salt, then pour onto the pan.
For the asparagus, place on the sheet pan and drizzle olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the chicken sausage around the vegetables on the sheet pan and leave as is.
Bake at 375º for 25 minutes
Recipe Swaps and Substitutions
Here's a few ways to make this recipe your own, especially if you're in need or swapping something our or are looking alternatives and substitutions:
- Sausage - if you want to use plain pork sausage, you're welcome to do that! You could use turkey sausage or a plant-based sausage too.
- Veggies - swap out the asparagus for string beans, broccoli, or cauliflower.
- Potatoes - though I used potatoes in this version, you can either omit, or if you can't find fingerling potatoes, slice baby potatoes and season the same way.
One of the biggest benefits of making a sheet pan meal is that there are many ways to vary how this is served! Here's a few of my favorite serving suggestions:
- Grilling - grill all of the ingredients on a grilling pan and throw the sausages in some hot dog buns.
- With Rice - omit the potatoes and make a large pot of rice to serve with. I love using Kettle and Fire bone broth when making my rice to give additional added benefits to the rice.
- With Pasta - boil up your favorite pasta and serve the sausages sliced along with the vegetable of choice, just omit the potatoes once again if you're serving pasta.
Kitchen Equipment and Tools
I love this recipe for so many reasons, but the biggest is that it does not require many different tools and equipment. Here's what you'll need:
- One large sheet pan - I recommend one large enough to hold three different ingredients, so a full size works best.
- Parchment paper
- One medium sized bowl
How do I store this recipe? Can I freeze it?
This recipe will keep in the fridge in a tightly-sealed tupperware and container for up to five days. You can absolutely freeze this too. Place all of the ingredients in a tight container, place in the freezer, and be sure to defrost the morning before you'd like to reheat!
Add a few small slits into the sausages prior to baking, they'll slightly burst open and create delicious flavor.
