We dedicated this entire week to sheet pan dinners—meals that require no more than a sheet pan and an oven, so you don’t have to spend extra hours laboring over the stove.
We love this style of one-pan dinners, because they’re easy, efficient and low-maintenance, requiring just one baking sheet, zero active time while cooking and crazy easy cleanup. That means once you slide ’em into the oven, you have more time to hang out with family or catch prime-time TV. Bookmark any of these seven recipes for dinner this week, serve alongside a nice bottle of wine, and smile as you cross dinner off your to-do list.
|Fish Puttanesca en Papillote with Zucchini
Cooking fish en papillote, or wrapped in parchment paper, results in moist, tender fillets and is also very healthy because it requires a minimal quantity of butter or oil.
|Baked Tofu with Peanut Sauce
This simple ‘‘stir-fry’’ that bakes in the oven, making cleanup a snap, and the peanut sauce is easy to pull together without a blender.
Here, flank steak slices, bell peppers and onion are roasted together, then tucked inside warm tortillas and topped with mashed avocado and a squeeze of lime juice.
|Roasted Chicken Legs with Broccolini
Lemon slices, a fresh chile and garlic cloves boost the flavor of this fancied chicken-and-broccoli dish.
|Pork Chops with Grapes
Our test kitchen developed this one-dish wonder, which features bone-in pork chops baked with red grapes until the fruit is just start starting to burst. This dish is simple enough for a weeknight meal with the family yet impressive enough for guests.
|Yogurt-Spiced Chicken and Preserved Lemon Skewers
This recipe calls for wooden skewers and preserved lemon,a North African condiment, but it comes together in a snap: Skewered chicken cubes and asparagus are cooked on the same baking sheet, making prep and cleanup a breeze.
|Lemony Shrimp and Broccoli Rabe
Both shrimp and leafy broccoli rabe cook rather quickly, which means you’ll barely have time to set the table before this dinner’s ready to devour! Trust us: That’s a good thing.
