I am all about sheet pan meals lately guys! Life has been pretty hectic around here, so when dinner rolls around I’ve been really into easy. And delicious.
This Jerk Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts is all that and more.
If you missed my Sheet Pan Gnocchi with Italian Sausage, Broccoli Rabe, Onions and Peppers from a few weeks back, it’s time to break out the old sheet pan. You’ve been missing out. Countless followers of the blog have made it and LOVED it! And I have to say, today’s recipe may be even better.
I’ve always been a huge Jamaican jerk seasoning fan. I shared it way back here at the BHK and so many of you love it too. I use it on chicken, shrimp, veggies…the possibilites are endless.
The combination of the spicy chicken, the smoky flavor of the sausage, the sweetness of the sweet potatoes and the nutty flavor of the Brussels sprouts in this sheet pan dinner is like a party for your taste buds.
Jerk Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts Ingredients
• boneless, skinless chicken thighs
• jerk seasoning
• beef smoked sausage
• sweet potatoes
• Brussels sprouts

First, you’ll marinate your chunked, boneless, skinless chicken thighs in some olive oil and jerk seasoning. While that’s marinating, you’ll cut you sausage and veggies and toss them with some olive oil and kosher salt. Then you’ll pour everything onto your sheet pan and bake.
Simple, am I right? About 35 minutes from start to finish and dinner is served. Grab that sheet pan and get baking folks. Enjoy!
A Few Cook’s Notes for Jerk Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts Recipe:
I used a yellow onion for this recipe, but you could also use a red onion.
If you’re not a fan of dark chicken meat you could also use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. They will just take a little less time to cook.
I cut each of my chicken thighs into large chunks. Mine were on the smaller side, so I cut each one into about four equal sized pieces.
I use my homemade Jamaican jerk seasoning which I have linked above. It will make more than you need for this recipe, but you can store it in an airtight container in your spice cabinet for future recipes.
