The chicken in this recipe needs to cook for 25-30 minutes alongside the other veggies on the sheet pan. It’s a great weeknight dinner idea and since there’s hardly any prep involved, it’ll be ready in a flash.
Making this dish low carb is as simple as leaving out the potatoes! You may want to check on your packet of ranch seasoning as well if you’re really trying to watch your carbs, as there may be some hidden in different ranch seasoning brands. In place of potatoes, you can sub in some cauliflower or just leave the potatoes out altogether – there's so much in this recipe, you likely won't miss 'em!
Storing and reheating
You can store any leftovers in the fridge in glass meal prep containers for 4 to 5 days. I prefer to store it all in individual serving sizes – that way, all I have to do is pull one out of the fridge, reheat it and enjoy.
To reheat, sprinkle a little bit of water over top of the chicken and then reheat it in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
Freezing this chicken
The chicken in this recipe will freeze just fine, but the veggies will definitely change texture and get all mushy, so I don't recommend freezing this dish. You can try, but it just won't be the most appealing thing to eat.
If you are concerned about too many leftovers, I suggest cutting the recipe in half and eating everything within a few days.
