One of my fave cooking + all around life hacks is one pan cooking! It is the ultimate tip for anyone looking to cut down on time in the kitchen when they are living a busy life - and you know us Skinny Soupers are all about ease + convenience. This how-to will not only cut down your time in the kitchen, but also help you plan your meals for the week. One pan cooking for the win!



  • An oven

  • A large sheet pan with lips/rims or high edges

  • Veggies

  • Protein

  • Your fave cooking oil

  • Your fave seasonings



I believe simplicity is key when it comes to my one pan wonders, so I usually choose a variety of veggies (and even some fruit sometimes), paired with either chicken or shrimp. If you are plant-based, choose tempeh or tofu!

  • Broccoli or Brussels Sprouts

  • Potatoes (yukon gold, red, or sweet potatoes, small chunks)

  • Bell Peppers

  • Zucchini or Butternut Squash

  • Pineapple (optional)

  • Chicken Breasts (small chunks)

  • Shrimp (tail-off)

  • EVOO

  • Sliced Lemon or Lemon Juice

  • Pressed Garlic

  • Finely Chopped Onion

  • Salt + Pepper


Cut all the contents of your one pan wonder into pieces that are relatively the same size for even cooking! Yes, even the meat. Put your one pan wonder in the oven at 350-400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes (you might need more or less time depending on the contents of your pan). Take out, let cool, + enjoy! You can even pair your one pan dishes with a side of rice or place on top of a bed of your favorite greens.
