You know how I feel about one pan meals. It’s quick and easy without compromising flavor, and it gets even better when you roast your veggies right alongside your main entree.

Now you can use other veggies here but you may have to extend cooking time as you see fit. For example, asparagus spears will not require all 20-25 minutes of cooking time but baby red potatoes may need all minutes, if not more. Either way, there’s plenty of room to adapt here.

But the lemon herb crust is the true star here – crusted with dill, oregano, rosemary and thyme with freshly squeezed lemon juice and Dijon mustard for that extra kick of flavor. And yes, this all really comes together on one single sheet pan for those busy weeknights.
