After a day of doing chores and running errands I did not want to do dishes. And I didn’t want take out. I had good food to cook but I was interested in minimal effort. And so I went to my cookie sheet solution. I do this from time to time when I have nice ingredients but nothing fancy in mind. Everything on one cookie sheet, lined with foil. Zero dishes. Maximum taste. Good, simple food.
You could really use whatever ingredients you want for this. Have fish instead? No problem. Different veggies? No problem! Just spread them out like so and it will be just perfect. Adjust quantities to match the number of people you’re feeding.
Want another dinner on a cookie sheet? Here’s a different option.
Dinner on a Cookie Sheet – Honey Mustard Chicken with Smashed Potatoes and Green Beans
1 tsp. honey
1 tbsp. coarse dijon mustard
Small red potatoes
Salt & pepper
In a small saucepan, boil whole potatoes until fork tender. Preheat oven to 400˚. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Spray with cooking spray. Mix honey and mustard and smear all over chicken. Place on the cookie sheet. Place potatoes on cookie sheet and use the flat surface of a spatula or the flat of a knife to smash. Spread out the green beans. Scatter a few mushrooms about. Sprinkle everything with salt & pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
