Cook/ Easy Weeknight

Stuffed Chicken One Sheet Meal

So it’s been a pretty good week!…I made my first recipe video…all by myself! I’m super chuffed with it and it’s been something I’ve been wanting to do for ages.  Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t winning no Oscar (maybe a Golden Globe though….), but it feels great to do something new and it’s a bit of a personal win.  Check out the video below for my Stuffed Chicken One Sheet Meal and you will find the full recipe at the end of this post!

 

This Stuffed Chicken One Sheet Meal is perfect for weeknight dinners and will help cut down on the washing up at the same time! For prep and cooking, you can whizz this up in less than an hour and costs around £6 per person, based on making this recipe for two.  Winner winner, chicken dinner!

I went for some strong, classic flavours for the chicken; blue cheese, bacon and maple syrup.  I mean, you cant go wrong!  One note, buy THE BEST chicken you can, at the very least buy free range, it really does make a difference to the taste and texture of the finished dish.  The veg and potatoes are lightly coated in oil and seasoned with herbs, salt and pepper to give them an extra depth of flavour and they will come out of the oven nice and browned.

Guys, you can not go wrong with this Stuffed Chicken One Sheet Meal, super simple, super quick and super tasty!

    Oh my gosh. An alternate title for this one could be “Heaven On A Sheet Pan,” because that’s literally what it is. I cannot wait to try!

    What is a “courgette”? And what would the amounts (and temperature) be in United States measurements?

      Hi Gail, thanks for visiting! A courgette is the English word for a zucchini and you can convert measurements using this http://www.convert-me.com/en/convert/cooking/ . Let me know if you make it, I hope you enjoy!
