Sheet Pan dinners are amazing! They are one of the easiest ways to make  quick meal I’ve found – throw everything onto a pan together and then let the oven do the work.

One pan – so no mess, no trying to make 3 dishes at the same time, and its fairly brainless because you really don’t have to expend that much mental energy when all you are doing is chopping thing into bite sized pieces. It’s a complete meal, all on one pan, and in about 30 minutes.

This particular sheet pan is dedicated to fall – what with its sweet potatoes, bacon, chicken and apples all blending together beautifully. But it would be perfect any time of the year. I have been loving Jamaican Jerk seasoning (affiliate link) lately, how its slightly sweet, slightly spiced, and can be as hot as you wish it. It pairs perfectly with sweet potatoes, apples and bacon here. Serve this as a stand alone meal, or with white or brown rice.

Having a solid Jamaican Jerk seasoning (affiliate link) is important here. It is one of those things where every brand does it a little bit differently, and you never know what level of spicy you are going to get. You want to make sure it has a good balance of flavor and heat – this blend is has the perfect combination of Jamaican allspice berries, black peppercorns and dried thyme, for a flavorful, spicy kick.

  1. Loving the flavour profiles here. The ease of this recipe is perfect for busy weeknights. Even the novice cook will have no problem making this for the family dinner.

  2. I love sheet pan meals and this lovely recipe has made it’s way to the top of my recipe box. The flavors are perfect and it’s such an easy meal to make. I’ll be making this one year-round for sure!

  3. This sheet pan dinner was so easy to make that I couldn’t believe how easy it was! Going into our regular dinner rotation for sure!!

  4. Delicious! I LOVE the apple/sweet potato combination, I never think to mix those two flavors. And talk about easy! 🙂

  5. What do you do with the Bacon ? Not in the cooking instructions.

    1. Add it to the pan with the rest of the ingredients.

  6. What do we do with the bacon?

    1. Cut it up and add it to the pan with the rest of the ingredients!

  7. I had an issue with the sweet potatoes not cooking all the way. I did use two medium because I couldn’t find a large one. Other than that the flavors were good. I’ll try less potatoes next time to see if that helps.

  8. Very good but WAY too spicy, and I only used one TBSP of the Jerk seasoning instead of two. Next time I’m going with 1/2 TBSP. The sweet potato pieces were not softened after the recommended 20 minute cook time. We had to bake 15 minutes longer which was as almost too long for the other ingredients. It might help to precook the sweet potato for a short time in the microwave first. Otherwise, it was a very tasty recipe. Thanks!

  9. Delicious! My hubby asked me to add it to the “frequent rotation” list. It’s very easy to put together, which is particularly appreciated if you have a limited kitchen like I do. (I don’t have an oven, so I cooked this on a pellet smoker/grill.)

    A few observations:
    – Like others, my sweet potatoes were still a little firm after 25 minutes. I didn’t want to dry out the chicken, so I pulled the food. They were done, but a little more cooked would have been better. I like the idea of par-cooking the sweet potatoes first.
    – I increased the amount of seasoning by about 50%, just for a bit more coverage.
    – It’s easy to adjust the amount heat. I made my own jerk seasoning and tweaked the flavor to my liking.
