Fall Feast

This recipe completes about 6 reasonable sized servings. It is probably about the perfect size for 2 to 4 people with a few left overs. You can easily double the recipe by making a second sheet pan and cooking them side by side in the oven.

Serve with a green salad and dinner rolls or your other favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. Oh, and don’t forget the pie!

Preheat your oven to 400°. Trim the fat off the turkey or chicken breast and place in the middle of your sheet pan. 

Melt your butter and add 1/2 tsp dried sage, 1/2 tsp chopped rosemary, 1/2 tsp thyme. Brush the butter mixture over your poultry. Then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Turkey or Chicken

Place your chicken or turkey in the oven and cook for 30 minutes. While it is cooking prepare your vegetables, which you will add to the sheet pan then cook for about 30 additional minutes.

Easy clean up

I like to use the same bowl to mix the potatoes, green beans/peppers and sweet potatoes. Mix them in that order to avoid mixing the brown sugar and cinnamon flavor with the potatoes and green beans. This really cuts down on dishes.

All the fixings

Quarter the red potatoes and then drizzle with 1 Tb olive oil. Add 2 tsp. fresh chopped rosemary or 1 tsp. dried rosemary and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Mix it all together until potatoes are coated with oil.

Healthy Veggies

Remove the stems from your green beans and wash. Cut the red pepper, remove seeds and slice into strips. Drizzle the green beans and red peppers with 1 Tb. olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper then mix well.

Peel the sweet potatoes and chop into medium sized chunks. Drizzle with 1 Tb. olive oil, sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and then mix well.

After turkey or chicken has cooked for about 30 minutes remove and place potatoes, sweet potatoes, and green beans with peppers in separate sections on your sheet pan next to your poultry. Return to the oven and cook for an additional 30 minutes.

Make sure that your turkey or chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165° and that your veggies and potatoes are soft when pricked with a fork.
