Sheet Pan Dinner: Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Chicken and Potatoes with Kalamata Olives

If you love earthy comfort in a bowl, this dish is for you.

The key to the simplicity of this meal baked on a sheet pan is cutting the ingredients into the right size, which ensures the correct doneness. Then you just pop it in the oven, go on with your business, and minutes later you have juicy chicken, crispy Brussels sprouts and fork tender potatoes. A complete meal to warm you on a cold autumn night.

And if you’ve been avoiding potatoes due to the latest fad diet, here this: A recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition and commissioned by the United States Potato Board showed how overweight individuals randomly assigned to a reduced calorie diet—either high glycemic index or low—or a control group all lost a couple of pounds of body weight while eating 5-7 servings of potatoes per week. This study helps dispel the myth that potatoes make you gain weight. I enjoy potatoes at least once per week—boiled, roasted, baked, and on occasion, even deep-fried. Plus, potatoes provide 45% of the daily value of vitamin C and have more potassium than a banana. Disclosure: I attended a media luncheon hosted by USPB where I enjoyed a free scrumptious lunch.
