Chicken sausage recipes
I love chicken sausage recipes and I also love how easy it makes getting dinner on the table. Like everyone else, I’ve been cooking all of our meals for months and it’s nice to have an easy one in the rotation.
The best part of dinners like this one is they are fuss-free. Choose whatever vegetables you like or go with the ones I’ve used. A few minutes of chopping is all the effort needed to get dinner on the table.
Do a bit of chopping the night before or in the morning and this sheet pan dinner just got even easier.
How to cook chicken sausage sheet pan dinner
I always line my sheet pans with parchment paper. It helps to keep the food from sticking to the pan, especially starchy vegetables. Another helpful tip before we get started is to use a heavy duty sheet pan – one that won’t warp at high temps.
The first step is to give the vegetables a head start in the oven. Because the chicken sausage is already cooked, it’s just a matter of browning it and making sure it is warmed through.
When the vegetables are almost done, the chicken sausage is added to the sheet pan. I like to place them cut side down so they get nice and brown.
After 10 – 15 minutes in the oven, everything will finish cooking at the same time and dinner is done.
One of the nice things about a dinner like this is having leftovers. I almost always make double the amount needed just to have extra.
A bit of veggies and chicken sausage make an excellent lunch, so bake an extra tray if prepping lunches for the week is helpful for you too.
That being said, I don’t always want to eat the exact same thing over and over, so I’ll divide my veggies and make 2 slightly different versions for a little variety.

What can I serve with this sheet pan dinner?
This is a complete meal, but I’m never one to turn away a good salad or a scrumptious dessert, so here are a few suggestions:
- Butternut squash arugula salad – topped with white beans and toasted pecans, then drizzled with maple vinaigrette.
- Blueberry pound cake – a simple loaf cake that is tender, moist and bursting with fresh blueberries.
- Lemonade iced tea – combine classic sun tea with lemonade to make a delicious anytime drink.
