Broccoli Cheese & Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

Jump to Recipe

A quick and hearty sheet pan dinner full of chicken, ham, potatoes, broccoli and covered in cheese – Broccoli Cheese & Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner belongs on your next menu plan! The flavor combination of this dish is going to knock your socks off. You get all the goodness of a classic baked chicken with a cheesy broccoli and potato veg side and why not through in some ham for smokiness. That is the great thing about sheet pan meals, you can add in different things to create new dishes.

Broccoli Cheese & Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

This one is a two stage cook because the potatoes and chicken take a little longer to cook than the broccoli and ham. So I like to give the potatoes that extra bit of time to get tender. Since it is bone-in chicken, I always want to make sure it gets cooked through. When I add the broccoli and ham, I try to just fill in the spaces around the pieces of chicken, but put it right on top of the potatoes. And then be really even with cheese. You don’t want it to clump because for this dish we are going to a golden crispy cheese to add texture.

Broccoli Cheese & Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

As with most sheet pan meals, there is room for adjustments. You could swap the ham for cooked bacon pieces. Or use cauliflower in place of the broccoli, or even green beans. You could also do carrots, but I would add those at the beginning. But I will say that the combination I used in this recipe is a very good one, and you might want to give it a go as is before switching it up. Another tip – definitely use the parchment paper and clean-up will be a breeze!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
