For almost a year now, you guys have been LOVING my recipe for Chicken Sausage and Vegetable Skillet! I took that recipe and changed it up just a little bit to work perfectly for a sheet pan dinner. You are going to really enjoy this different version. I love this Sheet Pan Chicken Sausage and Vegetables because after chopping everything the oven does the rest of the work!
Ingredients Needed & Tips:
Chicken Sausage– Any flavor you think would taste good works!
Red & Sweet Potatoes– I like to have both for the variety of texture and taste but you can just use 1 type of potato if you prefer. Another type like Yukon or Russet would work too.
Bell Pepper- You can use just 1 color of a variety of colors.
Italian or Cajun seasoning
Salt & Pepper
You can adjust the spices as per your taste.
Optional: Parmesan. I like to add it when the food is ready and then put it back in the oven just for about 30 seconds so it melts.
Follow the recipe instructions on how to cut your vegetables. You will want to cut the potatoes smaller than all the other vegetables because it takes the longest to cook. And cut the broccoli into bigger florets because it cooks faster. If you want, you could also just cook the potatoes for 10-15 minutes first and then add the rest of the ingredients for another 10-15 minutes. If I do this I like to increase the temperature just when cooking the potatoes to 425 F.

- Brussel Sprouts
