With the healthy living season in full force, I couldn’t be more excited to share some of the easy, healthy and delicious recipes I make for my family all year round. As you can probably imagine, when you’ve been maintaining a 65 pound weight loss for more than 12 years, you have to keep your diet in check all year round.

Sheet pan chicken dinners are naturally gluten free, low carb and high protein but beyond that, they are so easy and always result in tender, juicy chicken and caramelized veggies.

Liz Scattering Onions

For this Italian sheet pan chicken dinner recipe I start by thinly slicing peppers, onions and fennel and scattering them in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Additionally, since any good Italian (and Lebanese girl for that matter!) knows that everything tastes better with garlic, I toss in 10 whole cloves of garlic, skin on.
