5 One-Pan Dinners To Make This Month

Cooking at home is going to pan out with these easy recipes

by Brittany Bennett

Dishes are the worst. Besides denting into your post-work TV binge schedule, a flowing faucet is not on conservation’s good side. Don’t piss Mother Nature off. Instead, invest in a sheet pan, your dinner’s newest secret weapon. Soon dinner can be served on a silver—er, aluminum—platter.

You know that frantic jig we all do around the kitchen as different components of dinner finish at separate times? One hand is opening the oven while the other is reaching for the toaster oven and a toe is attempting to turn off the timer. The sheet pan puts a stop to that like the sheriff put a stop to dancing in Footloose (before Kevin Bacon showed up, that is). Serve your protein and vegetables hot, and in a calm manner, together. 

Try the recipes below and dinner will be ready with enough time to get at least five episodes of that new Netflix series in.
