One of the best go-to weeknight dinners is hands down a sheet pan meal. They’re easy to prep, everything cooks on one pan, and dinner is ready in hardly any time! This Sheet Pan Chicken Sausage Dinner includes a variety of vegetables and can be customized to your liking. Simply toss your vegetables and chicken sausage with a little bit of olive oil and spices and roast in the oven until the veggies are tender and the sausage has nice browned edges. Dinner simply doesn’t get much easier than this!

Ingredients You’ll Need

This Chicken Sausage Sheet Pan Meal is made with simple, basic ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Chicken Sausage – Fully-cooked chicken sausage usually comes in 4-5 individual sausage links. I like using a chicken & apple flavored sausage, but choose one that your family will enjoy.
  • Vegetables – For the vegetables we used a combination of red bell pepper, red onion, broccoli, and sweet potatoes. But you can easily substitute some of the veggies based on what you have in your pantry or fridge. I’ll share a few suggestions below.
  • Oil and Spices – Extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried oregano add a simple, but flavorful seasoning to this sausage and veggies sheet pan meal.

Can I Use A Different Type Of Sausage?

Sure! You can use any type of smoked sausage for this recipe. I just so happen to love chicken sausage, but beef, pork, turkey, or even kielbasa sausage would work just fine. Just make sure you are getting fully-cooked sausage links.

Can I use Different Vegetables?

Absolutely! As I mentioned above, this recipe is very flexible and easy to customize. Feel free to switch out the sweet potatoes for Yukon gold or russet potatoes, you can use Brussels sprouts or zucchini instead of broccoli, and you can use different color bell peppers. Just make sure the vegetables are cut roughly the same size so they cook at the same pace as everything else.

Storing & Reheating

This sheet pan chicken sausage dinner is great for meal prep! Just store any leftover sausage and veggies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave or in the oven at 350°F until warmed through.

  1. So easy and delicious. Served over a bowl of white rice. I do believe this will become a go to!!

  2. Made vegan with Field Roast apple sage sausages. Also used red onion, broccoli and yellow squash. Simple yet delicious and exactly what I needed after a long hike on a chilly day.

  3. Amazing recipe. We did garlic sausage and white potatoes instead but it was sooooo good. 10/10 would recommend.

  4. This was amazing. My boyfriend said it was one of his top favorite meals and that we should definitely keep this recipe.

  5. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it was fantastic! So simple and easy to make but the flavors are delicious. We’ll definitely be making this again.

  6. I made this last night. I used sweet Italian style chicken sausage from Walmart and it was SO GOOD. Also used yellow onion and russet potatoes instead red onion and sweet potatoes because that’s what I had on hand – love that this recipe works with whatever you have.

  8. LOVE sheet pan meals — and never quite know what to do with those sausages which are often on sale at my supermarket other than cook them with cabbage and/or potatoes. Thanks for a great flexible idea.

  9. My wife and I do these types of dinners all the time. Very versatile. The other night I made one with some diced apples added in as well. Some nice sweetness mixed in.

    This is a good recipe (really more of a technique) to keep in your back pocket when you just don’t feel like making a big production out of cooking.

    1. Oh, I like the idea of adding apples! Will have to try that now that apple season is coming.
