One Tray Cooking

For those of you that hate doing the dishes as much as I're welcome!

One tray meals are a major go-to in my house. They can be nutritious, delicious and time saving! I've often cooked two trays at the same time to help batch cook some meals for the coming days. So here are two of my favourite recipes...

Chicken Thighs and Veggies

  • 2 pounds chicken thighs

  • a mix of onions, garlic cloves, carrots, potatoes, broccoli, Brussel sprouts.

  • olive oil

  • 1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • Crushed garlic

  • fresh parsley, chopped

  • mixed dried herbs; thyme, rosemary and oregano. Or your favourite mix!

Heat the oven to 425°F.

Wash and prep cut carrots, potatoes, broccoli and sprouts into bite-sized chunks. Crush garlic cloves and roughly dice onion.

Make a bed for the chicken pieces by arranging the vegetables on the bottom of a baking dish. Scatter the onion and garlic cloves across the vegetables. 

Sprinkle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and 1/2 the herbs.


Rub the chicken drumsticks with olive oil, salt pepper and 1/2 the herbs, and place on top of vegetables.

Bake for 35 mins until chicken is done.

Toss the tray half way through. 


Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.


Salmon and Veggies

  • 4 cups shredded red cabbage (from half a small head)

  • 2 - 3 Cups of halved new potatoes

  • Extra-virgin olive oil

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1 pound wild caught salmon fillet

  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard

  • 2 tablespoons horseradish

  • Zest of 1 lemon plus lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Toss cabbage and potatoes with olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

Roast for 25 minutes.

Smear salmon with a mixture of mustard, horseradish and lemon zest.

Nestle in pan, and roast 15 minutes.

Squeeze lemon juice over all.
