In preparation for nights when I don’t want to cook yet crave a satisfying supper, I always keep a pack of smoked chicken sausages on hand. Specifically, I like Italian-style sausage links packed with herbs and garlic, because they give me maximum flavor for minimal effort. When paired with a mix of colorful chopped veggies from the crisper, dinner is ready in a flash.

A 5-Ingredient Sheet Pan Dinner in 30 Minutes

This one-pan meal is ideal for busy weeknights when you don’t have the time (or energy) to spend in the kitchen. It hits the table in about 30 minutes, and asks no more of you than chopping a couple of veggies and cutting the sausage links into bite-sized pieces.

The beauty of smoked chicken sausage is that it’s already cooked, so it just needs enough time in the oven to reheat and lightly crisp around the outside. This recipe calls for potatoes, bell pepper, and broccoli, although any vegetables you have on hand can be swapped in.

Nutritional Info

Ingredients

  • 1 pound

    small red potatoes (8 to 10), halved

  • 1/2 teaspoon

    kosher salt

  • 2 tablespoons

    olive oil, divided

  • 1 (12-ounce) package

    smoked Italian-style chicken sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1

    medium red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped

  • 1

    small head broccoli, cut into bite-size florets

Instructions

  1. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 400ºF. Place a rimmed baking sheet in the oven while it is heating.

  2. Place the potatoes, salt, and 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium bowl and toss to combine. Transfer to the baking sheet, add the sausages, and spread into an even layer.

  3. Roast for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, place the pepper, broccoli, and remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in the now-empty bowl and toss to coat.

  4. Stir the sausage and potatoes and push to one side of the baking sheet. Add the pepper and broccoli on the other side and spread into an even layer. Roast until the sausage is browned and the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes more.
