Stuffed Dijon Chicken Sheet Pan Supper

Another season, another sheet pan supper. That’s right, these one-pan meals aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Let’s revisit why we love them so much, shall we? You’re cooking everything on one pan, so there’s minimal cleanup (no complaints here). They’re also easily customizable. Switch out your protein and vegetables to cater to the picky eater in the family or change your recipes with the seasons – like we did for this autumnal, apple-licious sheet pan supper.

Stuffed Dijon Chicken Sheet Pan Supper

To make this seasonal supper, first heat your toaster oven (or standard oven) to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray then arrange sweet potatoes on the pan. You’ll want to give them about a 10 minute head start before the chicken goes in.

While the sweet potatoes roast, cut a long pocket into each of the chicken breasts. Spread dijon mustard into the pockets, then stuff with smoked provolone, spinach, and tangy granny smith apple slices (or whichever variety you picked during your annual trip to the apple orchard). Top with a simple mixture of panko breadcrumbs, oil, salt, and pepper.

Remove the baking pan after 10 minutes and place the chicken breasts on top of the potatoes. Bake for an additional 25 to 30 minutes until the potatoes are fork tender and the panko topping is golden brown.

The apples hidden inside the chicken and the sweet potatoes served alongside paint a portrait of autumn on the plate. The smoky provolone adds a salty surprise that’s a perfect match for the sweet apples. All this dish is missing is a cool fall night to enjoy it on.
