One Sheet Pan Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Chicken Tenders and Green Beans with Fresh Grape Tomatoes


One Pan Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Chicken Tenders and Green Beans with Fresh Grape Tomatoes | Cooking Classy

Here’s yet another one pan dinner you are simply going to love! This is the third one pan dinner I’ve posted in a row, I’m becoming slightly obsessed. If you can, why not just bake it all together on one pan and save yourself one less dish to clean?

This chicken is packed with flavor and it goes perfectly with the roasted green beans and fresh tomatoes. It’s simple enough for a weeknight meal yet elegant enough to serve to friends over the weekend. Plus it’s a meal the whole family can agree on. Even the kids will love it!

If you like your green beans to be deeply roasted, you can definitely use 4 whole chicken breast halves (about 6 oz each) in this recipe, that way you’ll be adding a little more cooking time and allowing more time for the green beans to roast. And if you happen to have Italian bread crumbs on hand and not the plain you can omit the herbs (I may add in a little more basil though) and reduce the garlic to one clove. I usually like to make recipes with plain bread crumbs so I can season them as I like, and in case you happen to have homemade bread crumbs you can make your own Italian style crumbs.

One Sheet Pan Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Chicken Tenders and Green Beans with Fresh Grape Tomatoes

Yield: About 4 servings

One Sheet Pan Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Chicken Tenders and Green Beans with Fresh Grape Tomatoes


  • 1 1/4 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into 1 1/4-inch thick strips
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp slightly packed, finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp each dried oregano, thyme and crushed rosemary
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb fresh green beans, tops trimmed
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced into halves


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a shallow dish whisk together bread crumbs, parmesan, basil, oregano, thyme, and rosemary and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add 4 Tbsp olive oil to a separate shallow dish and stir in garlic.
  • Working with one chicken tender at a time, dredge both sides in olive oil then immediately transfer to bread crumb mixture and coat both sides, while pressing to adhere. Transfer to one side of the baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining chicken tenders and placing them in a row along one side of baking sheet. Spread remaining bread crumbs over tops of chicken and gently press.
  • On opposite side of baking dish, toss green beans with 1 Tbsp olive oil. Spread beans to edges of baking dish, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Roast in preheated oven 23 - 25 minutes, tossing green beans once halfway through cooking, until chicken is golden brown and green beans are crisp-tender (if you want the tomatoes roasted too add them during the last 10 minutes of cooking). Remove from oven, sprinkle tomatoes over green beans. Serve warm, garnish chicken with fresh parsley if desired.

  • Deb @ What’s Cooking at Dinner Thyme: I’m with Leslie. I love each of these but never thought to make it a one-dish meal. Genius! (My chicken tender recipe is similar — bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, fresh parsley and a touch of lemon zest = YUM!). There’s nothing like roasted tomatoes. Sooo good. Great pics — as always!

  • Bunny: Why so much olive oil? Why not use a beaten egg to moisten the chicken? May 1, 2015 at 7:55pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: You could probably try that too. The olive oil just helps the coating stick. May 2, 2015 at 10:26am Reply

  • Courtney: Didn’t have the green beans and tomatoes, so just did the chicken! And by the way it smells in the over at the moment.. I’m excited! Thank you! May 13, 2015 at 4:38pm Reply

  • Ciara: Can I use foil instead of parchment paper? June 9, 2015 at 3:30pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: That would be fine but I would spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray first. June 9, 2015 at 5:16pm Reply

  • Michelle: I just saw this on Pinterest. I had all the ingredients on hand so I attempted to make it. It has a lot of flavor but it’s definitely a chicken finger recipe. I ate it by dipping it in ketchup. I had made rice to pair but it ended up too dry for rice,(might have over baked them not sure) next time I’ll pair it with spaghetti. Very healthy recipe though, I enjoyed it! June 22, 2015 at 3:41pm Reply

  • Shari Kelley: I made this chicken for dinner tonight and absolutely loved it! The chicken is so flavorful. I liked that you used olive oil to dip the chicken in as it made it very moist. The addition of fresh garlic to the oil added even more flavor. Thank you for a great, easy recipe! I plan on making it again and again. August 5, 2015 at 7:22pm Reply

  • Kristen: This was incredible! Don’t skip the step of adding the minced garlic into the olive oil before you roll the chicken in it, it amps up the flavor big-time! The beans and tomatoes go perfectly with the chicken. I love that I have found something so easy and delicious, thank you! May 30, 2016 at 9:32pm Reply

  • Blu: Has anyone tried using canned green beans? I dont have fresh ones and the grocery stores green beans looked pretty bad..Thanks! July 12, 2016 at 12:25pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: If using those I’d only recommend warming them through, as in adding them during the last few minutes. They obviously won’t taste as good – if you can get frozen I’d definitely use those instead :). July 12, 2016 at 12:28pm Reply

  • Vanessa: Could these chicken tenders be frozen after cooking?
    Looking for something to pull out of freezer, zap in microwave and eat at work for lunch. July 16, 2016 at 9:30pm Reply

  • Lo: Has anyone used pre-grated Parmesan from the bottle or are people grating fresh Parmesan by hand. Just wondering if there’s a major difference. Thanks! July 19, 2016 at 3:32pm Reply

  • Julie: I rarely comment on recipe posts, but I really needed to comment to let you know how amazing this recipe is! I made it for my fiance and me last night, and we both gobbled it up, super impressed with the moistness & flavor of the chicken, and the lightness of the roasted green beans & tomatoes. I am NOT a good cook at all, and this recipe made me so impressed with myself haha. Can’t wait for leftovers at lunch! August 8, 2016 at 11:21am Reply

  • Kristen: Jaclyn –
    I love this recipe but I’ve found that sometimes the breading on my chicken is a bit mushy. I quickly submerge the chicken in the olive oil/garlic mixture.

    So I tried to dip the chicken in egg last night. The chicken was crispier but less flavorful. I like the olive oil better but wish it was less mushy.

    Maybe I’ll just try brushing the olive oil directly on the chicken.

    Any suggestions? Thanks Jaclyn! It is a great meal.

    • Jaclyn: You can try using a wire rack, that way the bottoms stay nice and crisp. Hope that helps! September 19, 2016 at 10:55am Reply
