Take-out Tuesday, BBQ Chicken & Pineapple Sheet Pan Dinner

Last week HHjr had to go back to the “city” for a few days

DD, her family, and I were at the beach house without our chef!

He always spoils us with delicious dinners


what could I make for us that would be easy

and that CC and Charlie Brown would like…

Got a sheet pan?

Good, I’ve got a great dinner for you

BBQ Chicken & Pineapple!

I actually used 3 sheet pans, one for the chicken,

1 for Roasted Zucchini and Asparagus Parmesan

And one for Roasted Red Potatoes with Gorgonzola & Rosemary

All of these recipes are very simple to prep,

just a little chopping and they are ready to go in the oven

I recommend using boneless and skinless chicken thighs

Trim any fatty parts and cut the chicken into 1- 2 inch chunks

Drain pineapple, reserving juice

Mix 1/4 cup of pineapple juice into 1 cup of BBQ sauce

Pour enough sauce over chicken chunks to coat well

and reserve the rest of the sauce for serving

Line your sheet pan with parchment paper

and place chicken on the paper in an even layer

with pineapple chunks on one end

Put the pan in a preheated 375 degree oven

and cook for 25 minutes or until done

Serve it with the reserved BBQ/pineapple sauce on the side


I baked all 3 sheet pans in one oven, I put the potatoes in the oven on the top rack 20 minutes before placing the chicken in the oven on the middle rack and the zucchini and asparagus on the lowest rack, and everything was done at the same time.

    I love sheet pan meals, Jenna, and thank you for all these ideas. I grilled some fresh pineapple spears last week after mixing some melted butter and brown sugar and coating them. I’ll bet you darling daughter and your grands gobbled down your tasty meal. I hope you have a happy rest of the week enjoying your beach life.

    • Thanks Kitty, this was such an easy dinner and the chicken was so tender! Your grilled pineapple sounds amazing I will have to try that! We had such a fun month at the beach, my daughter was able to be there for 2 weeks and my son was there for almost 3 weeks. We all came back to Bham last Sunday, school starts next week!
