Weight Watchers One Pan Meals
One pan meals are a great option when you need to get dinner to the table in a hurry and you want a complete meal done right.
If you have an Instant Pot, be sure to check out our healthy dump dinners where all the ingredients can be dumped into the pressure cooker and you just press start.
This recipe is great because it’s all cooked together, it’s low calorie, low Weightwatchers points, and just takes 20 minutes to cook.
Sheet Pan Dinner Recipes
Sheet pan meals are wonderful for busy cooks because everything goes into the oven together. These are perfect for busy weeknights or for prepping ahead of time. A quick tip for sheet pan meals is to chop your veggies and meats into even pieces so they all get done at the same time.
Sheet pan dinners are usually cheap and frugal because you use simple ingredients and can use the potatoes and vegetables you have on hand.

Weight Watchers Meal Prep
Meal prep is simply cooking food ahead of time so that you’re prepared and have it on hand for when you want to eat it.
To meal prep this recipe, bake according to directions. Allow to cool and store in individual containers for the week ahead. This chicken recipe keeps in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. This can be frozen, but the potatoes and veggies might get a bit mushy.
I typically make ahead meals on the weekends. Sometimes I cook several recipes (check out our 3 day diet that includes step by step meal prep instructions) or simply prepare one ingredient such as making the meat for tacos (like with our Salsa Chicken recipe.) or roast vegetables to make your meals healthier and enjoy them for zero points.

As someone who is maintaining a 100 pound weight loss, I’m a huge fan of being prepared. When you plan ahead, you have to use less willpower.
Tips for Easy Sheet Pan Dinner Recipes
- For weight loss food prep, use meal prep containers such as these.
- Enjoy this recipe as prepared or serve with a side of a healthy whole grain like wild rice, brown rice, or quinoa.
- Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days.
- You can swap vegetables for your favorites. Sweet potatoes may be swapped for cubed white, red or fingerling potatoes. Vegetables could include broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, carrots, or onions. This recipe is a great way to use up extra veggies you may have on hand.
- This recipe is naturally gluten and dairy free. (Check ingredients on sausage to confirm when purchasing.)
- To make this vegetarian or vegan, use a plant-based sausage such as Beyond Sausage. Adjust points as needed.
- To make this WFPB (Whole Food, Plant-Based), eliminate the sausage and serve with a side of beans or a bean soup recipe such as this 15 bean soup. (The reason why you wouldn’t want to use a plant-based sausage for WFPB is that these are processed and contain oil, which is not part of a WFPB diet.) Instead of oil in the sauce, use vegetable broth.
- Garnish with fresh parsley, a sprinkle of parmesan cheese or crushed red pepper if desired.
