30 minutes easy sheet pan pineapple BBQ chicken with peppers and onions is the perfect weeknight family friendly dinner!

I love a sheet pan dinner! It’s made for a busy weeknight. This meal is super easy to throw together and it’s healthy. Just a few simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand, like chicken, bell peppers, onion, pineapple (fresh or canned) and BBQ sauce. Serve this quick dish over rice and you are all set!

  • Large sheet pan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Chicken- breast or thighs, cut into pieces 
  • Pineapple chunks- fresh or canned plus the juice
  • Bell peppers- any color you like
  • Red onion 
  • BBQ sauce- your favorite 
  • Seasonings-salt, pepper, garlic
  • Rice for serving

  1. Make sure to chop all of the ingredients first. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces, along with the pineapple, peppers, and onion. I like to leave the onion in larger chunks but you can dice them smaller, if you prefer.
  2. Add the chicken to a large bowl and generously season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients to the bowl with the chicken and give it a good stir.
  4. Line your sheet pan with foil for easy clean up, or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place the chicken and veggies on the sheet pan in a single layer.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  6. We love to serve this over rice, but it would be great over pasta or mashed potatoes as well. Easy and tasty!

Definitely! Add all the raw ingredients to a freezer safe bag. Freeze up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge for 24 hours, place ingredients on a sheet pan and cook as usual. You may need extra cooking time if the chicken is still a little frozen. The perfect make ahead freezer meal!

This would be a great meal to put together for someone with a new baby or someone who needs their freezer stocked up on easy meals.

Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container up to 4 days.

  1. I made this last night and it was ok. A little dry and bland.
