Keto Chicken & Chorizo Sheet Pan Meal

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

I have been loving making sheet pan meals lately. The concept of throwing a bunch of vegetables and some meat on a sheet pan and baking it in the oven almost sounds easier than a one-pan meal and we know how easy those are! Minimal cleanup after dinner is very nice during the week!

This sheet pan meal is loaded with fresh vegetables, chicken tenderloins, chorizo, and seasonings like paprika, cumin, and thyme. After making this meal, your taste buds will thank you!
