Sheet Pan Chicken & Green Beans

Sheet pan chicken and green beans tossed in garlic butter and roasted to perfection in the oven! This is one of those easy weeknight meals that we make again and again. The whole family devours this one!

My family used to tease me that the only thing I ever cooked was chicken.

It’s true. I was once a chicken fanatic.

And okay, who am I kidding, I’m still a chicken fanatic!

I just think chicken is so easy and you can put so many different spins on chicken that it’s nearly impossible to get bored with it!

This time around I made a low carb chicken recipe on a sheet pan (hello, easy) with a pile of fresh green beans (hello, tasty) and topped it off with garlic butter (hello, low carb, this is why I love you).

It doesn’t get easier than sheet pan dinners like this!

How to make sheet pan dinners your whole family will love:

Add garlic butter to any sheet pan meal and I feel like you have a winner! 😉

Garlic butter for chicken and green beans

First, we’re going to whip up the simple garlic butter by melting some butter and stirring in some freshly minced garlic, a little onion powder, freshly parsley, and some salt.

Set that aside and grab your green beans.

I’m using fresh green beans here. Just trim the ends off as needed and scatter them over a large, rimmed sheet pan.

Add a pound to a pound and a half of boneless skinless chicken breasts (or thighs) right over the green beans. My chicken breasts were huge, so I cut them in half lengthwise. I wanted to keep the thickness so that the green beans and chicken would cook in the same amount of time, but I didn’t just want two humongous pieces of chicken.

Season the chicken with a little paprika and salt and then pour the garlic butter over the chicken and green beans.

Pop this in a 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until your chicken is cooked through. I always use a meat thermometer to test my chicken. Highly recommend this one (affiliate link) if you’re in the market for an easy one to use!

What comes out of your oven is juicy, tender, super flavorful sheet pan chicken and green beans that are perfectly roasted and seasoned.

You seriously can’t mess this recipe up!

    THIS WAS DELICIOUS, Karly! My husband doesn’t love green beans, but I do, and when I saw your recipe I had the feeling that this one might just appeal to him because of the butter/garlic sauce. Not only did he clean his plate but asked if I’d make it again– yeah!!!

      Oh yay! Always nice to convert someone over to liking a veggie they previously didn’t! So glad you gave it a try!

      There will be some juice released from the chicken as it cooks. Same amount as in any other baked chicken recipe. 🙂

  2. Recipe was very easy to make. It was delicious! So simple yet flavorful. I didn’t use fresh garlic because I didn’t have any so I subbed powder, but I will try it the next time I make it. I also did not sprinkle the chicken with paprika and salt but rather I placed the paprika and salt in a bowl and tossed the chicken to evenly coat. My husband loved it! Thank you for sharing!

  3. I made this with frozen green beans and it came out great. I pulled the beans out of the freezer at the same time as the chicken that I defrosted in the microwave. I also added some strips of fresh red bell pepper. Next time I would use a smaller pan as some of the garlic butter in the corners burned on. I would also not add the parsley in the butter, but would use it as garnish.

      I’ve never tried roasting canned green beans. Not sure how they’d turn out, honestly.
