This sheet pan roasted chicken and rainbow veggies is a great dish to make if your just starting to meal prep or if you just want easy toss in the oven kind of dinner.

The chicken and veggies are loaded with spices and drizzled with olive oil, then roasted in the oven for 20 minutes or until charred and tender. Since the chicken breasts are cut into small cubes, they cook at the same rate as the veggies making it that much easier to cook everything at the same rate.

    Are the calculated calories including the rice or without?

      Layla

      The calories are without the rice. Adding 1/2 cooked brown rice to each container would add an additional 100 calories.

    Paige

    4oz chicken is usually 36 g protein.. so how are these only 20 g each? Thanks!

      Layla

      The recipe is 2 chicken breasts and it makes about 4 servings so each chicken breast is split into two servings.

        Christa

        Quick question – why is the fat content so high? Is it the olive oil? Because chicken and veggies don’t contain 15 grams of fat.

          Layla

          Yes, most of the fat is from the olive oil. It’s really good for you so I wouldn’t be worried!

    Morgan

    Hi! Just made this last night and loved the flavor! Quick question though, the nutritional value you have added, I assume this does not include a 1/2 c. of rice or quinoa. Correct?

      Layla

      Yes, the nutritional veggies do not include the rice or quinoa but adding 1/2 cup of cooked brown rice or quinoa would only add just over 100 calories to each container.

    Shannon Presley

    How do you make sure the chicken still has good flavor when reheated in the microwave?

      Layla

      The flavor should still be the same when re-heated.

    Nicole barrows

    How do you normally heat these up?

      Layla

      Microwave for about 2 minutes or until hot.

    Dorothy

    Delicious..whole family gobbled it right up!

    Lara

    My first time cooking this recipe, and looking forward to it. However, i forgot to put in tomatoes, and now it will probably be a bit dry.

    Aoife

    How long does each container last in the fridge?

    Kari

    Can you cook and then freeze? I am trying to start meal planning and that would be ideal as I don’t want something to go to waste

      Layla

      Yes, you can cook everything then freeze in freezer containers.

    Moe

    Hi i wanted to ask if i wanted to freeze it for some weeks do i still bake it or do i just prep it and put it in the freezer? and when the time has come i bake it and divide into containers. So prep then freeze or prep bake then freeze?

    Michael

    How long would this stay fresh if frozen

    Wayne

    Hi can you eat these meals cold?

      Layla

      Yes, you can but we prefer hot because all the ingredients can be heated.

    Ed

    I’ve made this several times and it’s very good! I bought the same containers online through amazon and I started freezing them. It only takes hours to thaw. The only changes I made were that I added a red bell pepper, and instead of garlic i used 1 teaspoon of granulated garlic. Be sure to add juicy tomatoes because that is what make the sauce so good! THANK YOU!

    Leah

    Any idea the calorie count on 1 meal for this recipe??

    Janet

    Not all of these ingredients need the same cooking time–I started the chicken and onions, plus some large diced yellow bell pepper, then 5 minutes later added the zucchini and broccoli, 5 minutes later, the cherry tomatoes. This was a delicious lunch combo, and since I don’t mind eating cold food, I found perfect right from the fridge in my office lounge. I also like to spray the baking pan with some sort of nonstick spray and although seasoning the ingredients separately gets a little fiddly, it isn’t much extra work and I prefer to have all of the elements cooked perfectly–no rice for me

      david

      Thanks Janet — I followed your instructions exactly. I am using just 1/4 cup of rice to minimize carbs… I do need some for running. I also added carrots and mushrooms to the roasted veggies but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It is SO STUNNING and even better was my butcher cubed the chicken breast so it saved so much time!

    Can the rainbow chicken be reheated?

    Layla

    Yes, it can be reheated in the oven or microwave!
