I partnered with Canadian Turkey to bring you this delicious turkey sheet pan dinner recipe!  I was compensated for my time, but the recipe, all thoughts and opinions are my own as always.  We really love turkey.

Sheet Pan Lemon Honey Garlic Turkey

I love that sheet pan dinner recipes are so popular right now, because they are big time savers for those of us making dinner!  With everything assembled in one pan, they’re easy to prepare, serve and clean up. And the ingredient combinations are endless, so no sheet pan dinner needs to ever be the same!

This weekend I made this Lemon Honey Garlic Turkey sheet pan dinner which is packed with vegetables, and nutritious and lean marinated turkey.

The star of this sheet pan dinner is the lemon honey garlic turkey.  I marinated chunks of turkey in a honey, lemon garlic marinade while I chopped up a bunch of vegetables, but if you want to maximize flavour, you can marinade the turkey for a few hours or even overnight.

The great thing about choosing turkey for a sheet pan dinner, is that it pairs so well with all flavours and vegetables…and it’s an affordable meat as well.  I can feed my family of 5 with 1 turkey breast, for less than $15!

You can use any vegetables that you like for this sheet pan dinner…clean out your vegetable drawer!  Right now my pantry and veggie drawers are full of winter vegetables like yams, potatoes, onions and brussels sprouts, which are perfect for a sheet pan dinner.  And they pair perfectly with turkey.

Ingredients

Turkey:

  • 1.5 - 2 lb turkey breast cut into 2 inch chunks

Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice approx juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp hot sauce (I used Sriracha)
  • 2 tsp soy sauce

Vegetables:

  • 1 yam cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 2 large potatoes cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 large onion cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 10 brussels sprouts cut in half
  • 2 lemons sliced
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Glaze:

  1. Whisk together the lemon juice, honey, brown sugar, garlic, hot sauce and soy sauce.

  2. In a bowl mix together the turkey pieces with the glaze and let marinate while you prepare the vegetables.  See notes.

Vegetables:

  1. Prepare your vegetables and lay them out on a sheet pan.

Putting it all together:

  1. Add the chunks of turkey to the sheet pan.

  2. Then drizzle 3/4 of glaze on the turkey pieces.

  3. Then drizzle some olive oil and the remaining glaze over the vegetables. Gently mix the vegetables until they're coated in oil and the glaze.
  4. Salt & pepper generously.

  5. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until the turkey is cooked through, and the yams are soft.

Recipe Notes

If you have time, the turkey can marinate in the glaze overnight.  This will give the best flavour!

5 “back to basics” tips to eat healthy all year long with turkey:

  1. Choose nutrient-rich foods first.
    Foods such as whole grains, veggies and fruit, nuts, seeds, yogurt and lean meats (ahem… turkey!). Turkey is packed with nutrients like vitamin B12 (important in keeping your nervous system – the body’s electrical wiring – working well), selenium (an antioxidant mineral) and zinc (for a strong immune system).
  2. Cook more meals at home.
    When you make more of your meals at home, you can control the ingredients that you’re serving your family. By cooking more whole foods “from scratch”, you’ll be more likely to get more good-for-you nutrients and save money at the same time – it’s win-win!  Here’s a turkey time-saver tip: Cook once, eat twice with planned leftovers. On the weekend, roast a whole turkey, a large turkey breast or extra thighs to enjoy for Sunday dinner and then use the leftovers to make quick meals during the week.
  3. Create a balanced plate:
    To build a healthy plate, combine protein-rich foods, such as turkey, with plant-based foods, such as veggies.
  4. Practice smart snacking.
    When you’re hungry in between meals, a small snack made with nutritious foods can help keep your energy levels up and keep you from overeating at your next meal.  Leftover turkey is ideal for when you need a snack to keep you nourished between meals.
  5. Bump up the protein.
    Turkey is an excellent source of high quality protein. Each 100-gram serving is lean and packs in about 30 grams protein.
