Sheet Pan dinners make their way onto our table a couple of times per week because of their simplicity and ease of preparation. Toss some vegetables in a healthy fat like ghee, lard, duck fat or tallow, add some meat, season generously with sea salt and black pepper, throw it in the oven and about 30-45 minutes later you have a nutrient-dense meal!
I like to use carrots, potatoes, squash, bell peppers, green beans, asparagus, broccoli or cauliflower. For the protein, I usually stick with something simple like a butterflied chicken, bone-in chicken breasts or pork chops. It’s imperative we use a healthy saturated fat that can withstand the heat without oxidizing. We also benefit from those fats helping our bodies assimilate Vitamin A, D, E and K for optimum health.
For this sheet pan dinner, I wrapped thin slices of prosciutto around chicken breasts and laid them on a bed of green beans and baby bell peppers tossed in duck fat. I seasoned everything with sea salt and pepper, baked for about 30 minutes and then we all enjoyed!
