This Hawaiian Chicken with Sweet Potatoes, Peppers, and Pineapple is an easy dinner that cooks entirely on one tray! It’s a healthy Sheet Pan Supper that the whole family will love — with only a few dishes to wash at the end!

Hawaiian Chicken is a healthy and easy dinner recipe that bakes on one pan!

With cooler fall weather on the horizon and an air conditioning system that has been repaired, I’m slowly turning on my oven more and more to make dinners that I can actually BAKE, rather than the salads and grilled meats that we have lived on for the past 3 months.

Isn’t it amazing how a change of season can completely alter our cooking? It’s a breath of fresh air…in more ways than one!

A Sheet Pan Supper is one of my favorite ways to make mealtimes easy. And now that we’re all getting back into the school routine (ahem…another drastic change with the seasons!), EASY meals are KEY!

With these one-tray dinners, I can cook an entire meal on…you guessed it…ONE TRAY. That means that everything is done at the same time and I have very few dishes to wash when the meal is over. WINS all around!

One tip is to make sure that you cut the meat and the potatoes into bite-sized pieces that will cook in a short amount of time. And if you don’t want to wrestle with cutting up a whole pineapple, just buy the pre-cut container of fresh pineapple in the produce section. Works like a charm!

Once all of your ingredients are chopped and spread onto the rimmed sheet pan, just drizzle with oil (DO NOT skip the sesame oil…that stuff is SO good and gives the dish so much rich flavor. If you omit it, your dinner will be bo-ring)!?

Hawaiian Chicken Sheet Pan Supper is a healthy dinner recipe idea!

Sprinkle with brown sugar or coconut palm sugar, and season with salt and pepper.

Give it all a good toss to make sure that everything is coated (hands work well for this too!), and then spread it all out in a single layer again.

After about 25 minutes in the oven, you will have super-sweet and juicy pineapple, soft sweet potatoes, and tender chunks of chicken and peppers. It’s a sweet-and-savory Hawaiian Chicken combo that kids love too!

Garnish with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and some shredded coconut for a truly tropical vibe!

Now I would tell you to serve this over rice (with some of the pan sauce poured on top), but my family actually loves it stuffed inside tortillas (or lettuce wraps) as Hawaiian Chicken Tacos. Hey, do whatever works for YOU. Keep dinnertime easy with a one dish recipe that everyone can enjoy!

This Hawaiian Chicken is an easy and healthy dinner that bakes entirely on one tray!


  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces (I used breast tenderloins because they’re easiest to cut into small cubes, but any boneless skinless breasts or thighs will work)
  • 2 cups cubed fresh pineapple
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 small sweet potatoes (8 ounces each), peeled and diced into small 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Place chicken, pineapple, peppers, and potatoes onto prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with sesame oil and canola oil; sprinkle with sugar and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat all ingredients.
  • Roast in oven for 15 minutes; stir, and return to oven to an additional 10 minutes or until lightly browned and chicken is cooked through.
  • Sprinkle with coconut and drizzle with lime juice just before serving.

    I just made my first sheet pan dinner a few weeks ago and am hooked! I’ve got to try this Hawaiian version…love the flavors and how easy it is! Gorgeous pictures, too!

    1. Blair says:

      Aren’t they the best, Gayle? I just love the fact that I don’t have to wash many dishes at the end! 🙂

  2. lynn @ the actor's diet says:

    I love me a simple sheet pan supper – also CUTE NAILS!

    1. Blair says:

      Hah! Thanks, Lynn! Blue goes with everything, right?! 🙂

  3. Kristy from Southern In Law says:

    This is such a delicious combination! Sheet pan dinners are one of my favourites when I’ve had a super busy day and still have things to do before dinner as I can just pop it in the oven and do what I’ve got to do while it cooks!

  4. Cheryl says:

    This looks delicious! I’m planning on making this for dinner tonight but am wondering if it would work in the slow cooker? It’s hot today and I’d rather not heat up the kitchen. Thanks!!

    1. Blair says:

      Hey, Cheryl! That’s a great idea! I think it would definitely work in the slow cooker. I would try about 3-4 hours on low. You don’t want to cook chicken breast too long or they’ll dry out. Let me know how it works!

  5. Amy W. says:

    This looks really yummy! Would it work as a freezer meal?

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Amy! I have never tried it, but yes — I think it would probably work well as a freezer meal!

  6. Sara says:

    Would this work with canned pineapple chunks?

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Sara! Yes, the canned pineapple chunks should be fine!

    I rarely leave reviews but this was so good and such a simple recipe! I didn’t change a thing and it was delicious. It is fodmap friendly also! Thanks for a great meal 🙂

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Moira! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a note! It makes me really happy to hear that you enjoyed the meal and that it worked for your dietary needs, too. Have a great week!

  8. aiguebelle says:

    Hi Blair, is it possible to substitute pineapple with oranges? Someone in the family is allergic to pineapple but I really want to try this yummy recipe!

    1. Blair says:

      Hi! I think the orange would probably work! 🙂

      1. Aiguebelle says:

        Hi Blair, thanks for this amazing fuss free recipe. i replaced the pineapples with oranges and it was super yummy. Can’t wait to try out your other recipes too 🙂

        1. Blair says:

          So glad that you enjoyed it! Thanks for taking the time to come back here and let me know!

    2. Blair says:

      Or watermelon might be another fruit that holds up well in this recipe. 🙂

      1. Aiguebelle says:

        Thanks Blair 🙂 will try and let you know how it goes

    i’ve literally never reviewed a recipe before, but I just had too! We’ve made this every week since someone shared the recipe with me about a month ago. We don’t have sesame oil so I just put sesame seeds on top when I add the coconut and lime. We also love coconut so I double that and it makes it taste much more tropical. We serve over jasmine rice made with the pineapple juice from the can.

    1. Blair says:

      YUM! Sounds perfect! Thanks for taking the time to come back here and leave a note. 🙂

    My husband and I love this recipe and the only change I made is adding the peppers after the 15-minute stir…cooking for just the last ten minutes leaves them a little more firm. Thanks so much for this delicious recipe.

      Great tip, Lynn! Thanks for your note!
