Sheet Pan Dinner

Whipping together a quick and easy weeknight can be challenging. Getting a meal that the whole family loves, sometimes feels impossible. I really feel that this sheet pan chicken shawarma meal is one of those meals that will creep into your weekly meal rotation.

Seasoning your chicken

The process of cooking this meal is very simple. Simply grab a bowl and toss in some sliced chicken breast and sweet potato. I then proceeding to season with garlic, lemon juice, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, cinnamon, oregano, olive oil, and salt. Mix all together. For even more flavour let the chicken marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours!

I love making sheet pan dinners as they are easy, delicious, and clean up is always super easy. Having a quality baking pan makes the cooking and end result that much better. Here are the pans that I use for best results.

Chicken & Sweet Potatoes

Shawarma Toppings

I suggest making this meal interactive. Have your family or guests build their own shawarmas at the table. Drop the sheet tray in the centre of the table and surround it will toppings for people to build their own! Lettuce, pickles, hummus, garlic sauce, pickled turnips, tomatoes. Sky is the limit!
