Imitation Jamie Oliver Sheet Pan Recipe Servings: 6-9

Ingredients: 6 chicken breasts

Olive oil



1 pound Brussels sprouts, halved

1 pound broccoli florets

10 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved

1 pound carrots, sliced (optional)

2 pounds potatoes, chopped

2 shallots, sliced into rings

1 Bake at Home baguette

1 ½ pounds bacon

1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed


Black garlic (or roasted garlic)

Fresh thyme*


1. Preheat oven to 375°. Put chicken breasts on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Put in the oven to cook while you quickly prep the rest, about 5 minutes. (You can make the chicken ahead of time to save time).

2. On a large sheet pan (or 2 small ones), place Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, carrots (optional), potatoes, and shallots. Tear the baguette into large crouton size chunks and add to baking sheet. Drizzle it all lightly with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Lay strips of bacon across the sheet; they should be touching but not quite overlapping.

3. Put the pan in the oven for an additional 25 minutes while your chicken continues cooking, and bacon is crisp on top.

4. On the stove top, add green beans to a frying pan with butter and sauté on medium-high heat for 25 minutes or until desired tenderness is reached. Add salt after 10 minutes. (These could be added to your baking sheet if you want but cooked in butter is best!)

5. Once the bacon is almost fully cooked, pull sheet pan out and break up the bacon. Mix bacon in with the other ingredients. Sprinkle liberally with black garlic and thyme; mix it in and put it back in the oven for approximately 15 more minutes.

6. Once everything is fully cooked, shred chicken, and add everything to a large serving bowl. Add more salt and pepper as needed.

*Podcast said rosemary, but she meant thyme. 😊

We made this last night and it was so much food! It could easily have fed 12 people I think. It was yummy and I love the idea of turning the leftovers into a veg filled breakfast from the previous comment. Thank you Bess for this podcast, it is so fun!

This recipe is delicious! I made one pan with bacon and another vegetarian and adding pesto and feta. Yum! The croutons are definitely my favourite part. I used the leftovers as a base for easy breakfasts. Re-heat veggies in a pan with a bit of butter, then crack a few eggs in and top with cheese. This is going on my weekly rotation as a healthy, veg filled, breakfast base. Thanks so much for sharing!
