There’s nothing that says that a thrown-together dinner can’t be impressive—you just need the right recipe. This simple meal is made up of easily accessible ingredients—chicken, potatoes, cauliflower and spinach—but with the right seasoning and the right method, the flavors go far beyond basic. Roasting on a sheet pan brings out deeper flavors and adds nice caramelization to chicken and veggies alike. As a bonus, it’s an easily adaptable meal that can flex to fit the ingredients you have on hand. And after all is said and done, you only have one pan to clean up—even better! MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Save prep time by purchasing bagged precut cauliflower florets.
  • Vegetables should be about the same size to cook evenly. Cut potatoes in sixths if large; halve or don’t cut at all if small.
