I am so excited to share this easy One Pan Chicken and Veggies recipe with you! It is the perfect recipe for low carb meal prep because it’s filled with tons of healthy veggies and makes enough for lunch all week long!
All of these veggies are full of flavor, but low in carbs so you can eat them without any worries.
A common ingredient in one pan meals like this is potatoes, but potatoes are higher in carbs and have a very large glycemic load on our bodies. This means we may not see the sugar in the food, but our bodies do! Atkins calls this the ‘Hidden Sugar Effect’ – foods that you think are healthy that actually turn into sugar when digested. You can read more about that here!
The first thing I do for this one pan chicken and veggies is to get all of my veggies prepped. If I do the veggies first, then I only have to use 1 cutting board. I’m all about less dishes!
I cut up 2 broccoli crowns into smaller florets, quarter 8 ounces of baby bella mushrooms, cut 2 large zucchini into large chunks, cut 3 bell peppers (red, orange, and green) into 1 inch pieces, and slice a whole red onion.
I then cut 3 pounds of chicken breasts into large chunks. You want the chicken breast pieces to be about 2 inches square so they do not dry out in the oven before the veggies have time to cook.
For the seasonings I use avocado oil (better for high heat cooking), oregano, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
I place all of my veggies and chicken on an 18 x 26″ sheet pan and pour the seasoned oil on top. I then get my hands dirty and mix everything together!
This one pan chicken and veggies is now ready for the oven. I place the pan in a 475 degree oven and let everything roast for 18 minutes. This gave me perfectly cooked and juicy chicken and perfectly cooked veggies!
This makes 5 very generous servings. I love the Atkins motto, and the title of their new lifestyle book, “Atkins: Eat Right, Not Less.” It is the perfect plan to keep your blood sugar stable so you have less cravings. Check out Atkins new book for other great low carb recipes here!
