These crispy chicken tacos are filled and baked on a sheet pan for a super-crunchy exterior and warm, melty middle. The creamy avocado crema combined with fresh cilantro is the perfect accompaniment. Don’t be tempted to squeeze the tacos onto one baking sheet—they crisp up best with plenty of space. Be sure to rotate the pans halfway through baking so they cook evenly.

Sheet-Pan Ratatouille

Think of this sheet-pan teriyaki salmon as a stir-fry without the stirring! Instead, rice and veggies are baked on a hot sheet pan alongside green beans and salmon coated in a sweet teriyaki glaze. Microwaveable precooked rice or leftover brown rice works well here. Just be sure to break up any clumps of rice that are stuck together so it cooks evenly.

Sheet-Pan Balsamic-Parmesan Chicken & Vegetables

This flavorful dish--with the combination of balsamic vinegar and Parmesan cheese--makes a great weeknight meal since it requires little legwork (and only one pan!). The marjoram adds a distinct earthy aroma. If you don't have marjoram in your spice arsenal, you can use dried oregano instead. Both have a woodsy flavor that complements the dish beautifully.
