Sheet Pan Suppers

Daily dinner dilemmas--who doesn't have them? Sheet Pan Suppers by Molly Gilbert has answers.
 
Sheet Pan Suppers is a new entry into the one pot meals genre. The idea is simple--assemble ingredients on a sheet pan, close the oven door and wait for the magic to happen.
 
The first recipe I tried was Fajita Flank Steak with Peppers & Onions.  When my husband came home from work the first thing he said was "Mmm, it smell like a restaurant in here!" The meal was delicious (we've made it 3 times and counting) and we've subsequently tried--

  • Crispy Za'atar Chickpeas
  • Quick Chicken & Baby Broccolini with Spicy Peanut Sauce
  • Soy Mustard Salmon and Broccoli
  • Thick Cut Pork Chops with Warm Apple Cabbage Slaw
  • Roasted Crisp-Topped Eggplant with Chickpeas
  • Eggs in a Hole in a Bread

 All were pretty successful, the pork chops with apple cabbage slaw were a standout and the eggs in a hole (all baked at the same time!) are going on my next brunch for a crowd menu. One tweak to the recipes as written is that I routinely brine chicken breasts before roasting them to help preserve moisture.  
 
Is this a masterpiece destined to claim a spot next to Julia's Mastering the Art of French Cooking? No, but it is one I reach for over and over when planning a simple weeknight meal.  
 
Bon appetit,
