3 Easy One-Pan Meals

Simplify your life with these three one-pan meals that are ready in just 30 minutes, plus easy clean-up! Simple seasonings and minimal prep work make these easy to prepare with just a few ingredients. We tested three satisfying combinations for easy family meals that go the extra mile. 
 
1. Pork Tenderloin with Apples & Carrots
Cozy up to a satisfying 30-minute dinner with fall flavors of roasted apples and carrots! Before baking, marinate the pork tenderloin for up to an hour (if you have time) in a mixture of mustard, honey, garlic, olive oil and fresh rosemary. Toss the carrots and apples in olive oil, salt and pepper before adding to the sheet pan. We like to use a mix of Golden Delicious and Granny Smith, but feel free to use your favorite apples. Rainbow baby carrots add a lot of color to the dish, but regular peeled carrots will taste just as delicious. Bake everything at 400°F for 20-25 minutes, or until the pork reaches 145°F. Tip: Allow pork to rest 10 minutes before slicing to allow juices to redistribute.
 
 
2. One Pan Chicken Thighs with Cauliflower & Eggplant

Local Chicken Bone-In Thighs H-E-B Cauliflower Florets Fresh Eggplant
These one-pan dinners (and clean up) couldn't be easier! This easy recipe features bone-in chicken thighs, but if you're looking to save a few calories, chicken breast works great too. Simply season everything with a generous squeeze of lemon juice, salt, pepper and olive oil. Bake at 400°F for 20-30 minutes or until chicken reaches 165°F. For a Mediterranean feel, serve with a homemade tzatziki sauce and pita bread. Use leftovers to make Chicken Shawarma for lunch the next day!

For a 30-minute meal that tastes like Sunday dinner, try this recipe for one-pan tri-tip beef! Tri-tip is the flavorful, triangle-shaped roast that comes from the rump of the cow. Simply season everything liberally with salt, pepper, minced garlic and olive oil. Since we're using a two-pound roast, bake the roast for 10 minutes before adding the sweet potato fries and asparagus. See more cook times and temperatures for meat. Bake an additional 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F. Chef Tip: Bake on a rack to prevent juices from getting the fries soggy. Allow tri-tip to rest 10 minutes before slicing. See more tri-tip recipes from H-E-B Chefs.
