Chicken, broccoli, zucchini, and bell pepper coated with pesto and baked in under 20 minutes. This quick and healthy dish is healthy, low-carb, flavorsome and makes a delicious lunch or dinner.
If it weren’t for these sheet pan dishes, I don’t know how I can possibly get through the week. They’re quick and easy to put together and cook in 15-20 minutes. Dinner is done and done.
You can serve this delicious pesto chicken and veggies with pasta or rice or eat it with a fork like I do. It’s great if you’re on a low-carb, paleo or keto diet because it’s packed full of nutrition and very low in carbs and fats.
For the pesto:
you can make your own homemade pesto from scratch or use your favorite jarred pesto. Either way, these pesto coated chicken, and veggies are DELICIOUS. If you’d like, top them with mozzarella cheese and bake for another 5 minutes just to get the cheese melted.
For the veggies:
I used zucchini, broccoli and bell pepper but asparagus, brussels sprouts, and green beans will also work great!
- 1 pound chicken breasts boneless and skinless chopped into bite-size pieces
- 1-2 cup broccoli florets
- 1 bell pepper chopped
- 1 large zucchini chopped
- 1/4 cup basil pesto
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese optional
- Pre-heat oven to 425F.
- In a large bowl, combine the chicken, veggies, and pesto until the chicken and veggies are coated well with pesto.
- Transfer mixture to a large sheet pan and bake for 15-20 minutes. If desired drizzle with mozzarella cheese during the last 5 minutes of baking. Enjoy with pasta, rice or toasted bread!
Made this for dinner last night. Super easy and very tasty! Easily adapts to whatever veggies you have on hand. I used broccoli and yellow bell pepper, added some red pepper flakes and topped it with fresh parm vs mozzarella. Delish!!

Sounds delish and easy – will try it this week. Might be good for our RV group. Have you served it cold or re-heated in micro?
Can you use frozen veg eg broccoli, green beans etc?
Hi Danielle, Yes frozen veggies will work but you would need to back at least 5-10 minutes longer or until cooked through.
Thank you for this delicious, nutritious and super easy recipe!

ESt-ce que tout les prep meal peuvent se congeler ? Merci
Tried it for my meal prep rOutine and it was delicious!! Will cook again Very soon.
I was wondering if this Meal Prep is for one person or Two? Because I am new to Meal prepping and will be doing it for Two people. I want to make sure I have enough of everything to do the meal prep for Two people for the week and not just one.
This recipe makes enough chicken for 4 meal prep containers. I suggest trying it out with 4 containers and making more as needed!
Hi! Delicious just made it. Hiw many calories per serving? Thanks!
I just added the nutritional info. There are about 250 calories per serving (recipe makes 4 servings).
Where do get the basil pesto at?
I made my own pesto as you can see in the photos above. When I do buy it, I like to purchase the fresh variety found near the deli counter or fridge but any pesto should work. Enjoy! 🙂
Tried this recipe and loved it! So easy and quick and healthy! Added extra veggies, so used more pesto. Topped with parmasean cheese. Yery tasty. Thanks for sharing.
