Roasted Ginger Turmeric Chicken and Vegetables {Paleo & Whole30}

This one pan roasted ginger turmeric chicken meal is an easy weeknight dinner that is packed with flavor.  It uses one of my all-time favorite marinades (ginger turmeric marinade) and is loaded with delicious roasted vegetables.


Delicious Ginger Turmeric Chicken and Veggies

While just about any vegetable would be delicious in this sheet pan meal, crispy roasted cauliflower pairs especially well with the turmeric and ginger flavors of the chicken marinade. 

I also add sliced zucchini, red onion and red bell pepper because they take on a sweet flavor that is a nice balance to the ginger turmeric chicken.

Healthy and Easy Roasted Ginger Turmeric Chicken and Vegetables

Roasted sheet pan meals are my go-to for busy weeknight dinners.  They are easy to assemble and roast quickly while you get on with everything else during the busy pre-dinner hour.

Vegetables are the base of this ginger turmeric chicken sheet pan meal

Lay the marinaded chicken on top of the veggies before roasting the whole meal in the oven.

Ginger turmeric marinated chicken and veggies

Roast sheet pan meal for 20 to 25 minutes at 425 degrees F until everything is cooked through and tips of cauliflower are crispy.

I typically serve this roasted ginger turmeric chicken on a bed of quinoa and baby spinach leaves.


The recipe serves our small family of 4 for dinner.  

I sometimes double the recipe (two roasting pans worth) for nights when the boys are particularly hungry or when we want leftovers for lunch later in the week.

  • Did you know that 80% of the antibiotics sold in the United States are for livestock?  That is why I choose to purchase chicken raised without antibiotics.
  • Red and green bell peppers consistently test positive for pesticide residues, including organophosphate pesticides.  That is why I choose to buy organic or pesticide free bell peppers.  Read more about pesticides and produce.

Tested and delicious substitutions:

  • Low sodium soy sauce can be used in place of tamari (recipe will not be gluten-free)
  • Coconut aminos can be used in place of tamari if you want a soy-free and gluten-free option (for paleo & Whole30 compatible meal)
