Easy Sheet Pan Chicken and Vegetables

Boneless chicken medallions, breaded and baked with sausage, carrots, onions, potatoes and cauliflower.  This easy sheet pan dinner proves that gluten free does not have to be complicated!  From oven to table, you don’t even need a serving dish.

I didn’t take step by step pictures of the preparation as I normally do, because honestly I never thought this meal would make it to the blog.  But it came out really delicious, so here we are.

The simple, fresh ingredients speak for themselves in this perfectly seasoned, one dish meal.

  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet with 2 tbsp. olive oil.  Line a half sheet pan with foil and mist with cooking spray.  Preheat the oven to 400º.
  2. Cook the sausage coins in the skillet until lightly browned, then use a slotted spoon to transfer them to the baking sheet.  Leave the oil behind in the skillet.
  3. Place the breadcrumbs in a food safe plastic bag, add the chicken medallions and shake to coat.
  4. Brown the chicken on both sides in the same skillet, about 1 minute per side.  Do not cook through, it will finish cooking in the oven.  Arrange the browned chicken on the baking sheet.
  5. Add several more tbsp. of olive oil to the skillet, with all of the vegetables.  Sprinkle liberally with Creole seasoning.  Par cook the vegetables in the skillet for about 10 minutes to give them a good head start, then arrange them on the baking sheet with the chicken and sausage in a single layer.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400º and bring right to the table for a fun and casual meal.  If you like, serve with BBQ Sauce for dipping!

Notes ♪♫ While the chicken and sausage cooked very quickly, the veggies took quite a bit longer, especially the potatoes and carrots.  Giving the veggies a 10-minute head start in the skillet is the secret to having everything finish in the oven at the same time.

One Pan Drumstick Dinner

Keeping your weeknight meals interesting can be a challenge.  Here is a simple recipe using common ingredients to add to your rotation.  Use an oven proof covered skillet or Dutch oven for easy, one pan cleanup.  The preparation is mostly hands off, so with just a little effort you can have a nice meal on the table with time to spare.

2 Servings


  • 4 chicken drumsticks
  • 1/4 cup white rice flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 ears of sweet corn, cut into thirds


Place 1/4 cup of rice flour in a clean plastic bag.  Add the chicken drumsticks, close the bag and shake to coat.

Add olive oil to a heavy, oven proof skillet and begin browning the chicken on all sides along with the onions.

Add the carrots to the pan, season to taste with salt and pepper.  Next pour in 1/4 cup of white wine, cover the pan and place in a 375º oven for 45 minutes.  Turn the chicken half way through.

During the last 10 minutes of cooking add the sweet corn.

Finish it off under the broiler for 3 minutes on high.  The chicken will be falling off the bone tender, the pan juices slightly thickened to create a nice light sauce.

Notes: ♪♫ Use plain white rice flour to coat the chicken, save your pricey all purpose gluten free flour mix for another recipe.
