This easy Sheet Pan Chicken and Gnocchi Pesto is a weeknight favorite in our house. All you have to do is chop up some chicken, throw it on a sheet pan with some vegetables and gnocchi, and bake it for 20 minutes!


  • 1 lb chicken breast, chopped into 1" pieces
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 4-5 whole garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 lb gnocchi
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons pine nuts, optional
  • 3 Tablespoons pesto, homemade or store bought
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice (1-2 slices squeezed)
  • grated Parmesan, for serving


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 375
  2. Throw the chicken, tomatoes, garlic, gnocchi, on a sheet pan
  3. Drizzle the olive oil, salt and pepper, and pine nuts onto the pan and toss everything around
  4. Bake for 20 minutes
  5. After baking, toss everything with Homemade Pesto in a Blender (or some store bought pesto!)
  6. Top it with some fresh lemon juice (so it doesn't brown!) and serve with grated Parmesan


*Make sure your chicken's internal temperature is at least 165 degrees before serving.
