Want to mix things up for dinner? When you go looking for a new recipe, sometimes it seems like everything calls for a million ingredients and takes two hours to make. Who’s got time for that?

Thankfully, sheet pan recipes make dinner simple. With these one-pan recipes, you just pop everything into the oven, set a timer, and get back to all of the other things you have to do. And when you save all that time cooking, it leaves you more time to pick out the right bottle of wine to make your evening feel a little extra special.

So, how do you pair wine with your new favorite recipe? This guide will show you. Whether you’re a vegetarian, pescatarian, or carnivore, and whether you’re looking for some cold-weather comfort food or a healthier option, these 15 sheet pan recipes and wine pairings have got you covered.

Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

With these sheet pan fajitas, you’ll mix chicken and bell peppers in a tasty spice blend, plus any toppings you like – cheese, gauc, the works. Enjoy these chicken fajitas with a crisp white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or a medium-bodied Chardonnay with tropical fruit notes. You could also go with a light- to medium-bodied red wine like Pinot Noir or Tempranillo.

Rosemary Garlic Pork Chops with Chickpeas

Who knew that pork chops and chickpeas could be a winning combination? Food Network Chefs, apparently. Check out this sheet pan pork chop recipe with chickpeas and roasted red peppers. These pork chops pair well with an aromatic white wine like Riesling or Chenin Blanc.

Glazed Salmon with Green Veggies

Hoisin sauce takes this simple sheet pan salmon recipe to the next level. Salmon is a versatile cut of fish, so you could choose either a red or white wine. Because the glaze is slightly sweet, your best bet is a slightly sweet wine, like off-dry Riesling or Lambrusco, if you prefer red. If you’d rather go with a dry style of wine, pick a fruit-forward varietal like Pinot Gris or a California Pinot Noir.

Sheet Pan Mac and Cheese

Craving comfort food? Look no further than this extra crunchy sheet pan mac and cheese, featuring a three cheese blend, panko breadcrumbs, and a dash of hot sauce. This gooey pan of goodness pairs well with a crisp sparkling wine like Cava or an aromatic white wine like Chenin Blanc, with notes of apple and honey. Red wine lovers can try Grenache, a red wine with enough acidity to cut through the creaminess of the cheese.

Roasted Vegetarian Chili with Cornbread Biscuits

When you’re in the mood for chili but don’t have time to make a pot of it, check out this easy recipe for sheet pan chili topped with cornbread biscuits. This flavorful vegetarian dish pairs well with a bold red wine like Zinfandel or Syrah.

Sheet Pan Hawaiian Shrimp

For something a little lighter, try this sheet pan recipe for Hawaiian shrimp. Featuring bell peppers and pineapple, this tropical dinner pairs well with an off-dry Riesling. You could also go with a dry white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or an unoaked Chardonnay.

Garlic Chicken with Carrots and Potatoes

This colorful sheet pan recipe calls for chicken thighs, drumsticks, and root veggies seasoned with fresh thyme, garlic, and paprika. Pair this easy weeknight meal with a medium-bodied white wine like Chardonnay or Viognier. You could also go with a light red wine like Pinot Noir, or even a rosé.

Sheet Pan Curried Tofu and Vegetables

This sheet pan curried tofu is super easy to make. With tofu (or your favorite meat substitute!), cauliflower, and sweet potatoes, you can make this dish as spicy as you want. Stick with a low-ABV white wine like Riesling or a crisp Pinot Grigio.

Beef-and-Bacon Meatloaf

We’ll be honest – you haven’t really had meatloaf until you’ve tried this meatloaf recipe. Rich, flavorful, and wrapped in bacon, this winter warmer pairs well with a bold red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, or an Italian red wine like Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.

Sheet Pan Paella

You don’t have to travel to Spain to enjoy some seriously delicious paella, and this sheet pan paella does most of the work by itself. Featuring chorizo, mussels, and shrimp, this traditional Spanish dish pairs best with a Spanish wine. You could go with a light-bodied white wine like Albariño, a dry rosé (or rosado), or sparkling Cava.

No-Fry Sheet Pan Eggplant Parmesan

If you’re looking to cut out fried food but you don’t want to sacrifice any of the flavor, check out this baked eggplant parmesan. Seasoned with breadcrumbs, fresh mozzarella, and basil, eggplant parmesan pairs well with a medium-bodied red wine like Chianti or Barbera. These reds have enough acidity to balance out the richness of the eggplant, plus they pair nicely with tomato sauce.

Spicy Roasted Sausage with Potatoes and Peppers

Fair warning: this sheet pan recipe for spicy sausage and peppers will have you coming back for seconds. Featuring andouille chicken sausage (or your favorite kind of sausage!), yukon gold potatoes, sweet red bell pepper, and homemade creole seasoning, this spicy dish pairs well with an off-dry Riesling or a low-ABV red wine like Dolcetto.

Flank Steak with Salsa Verde

This easy recipe for flank steak with salsa verde will make you feel like you're dining at an Argentinian steak house. Red meat pairs best with a full-bodied red wine, and Malbec makes a great pairing for both steak and chimichurri.

Broiled Cod with Fennel and Orange

If you don’t feel confident cooking seafood, this easy sheet pan broiled cod recipe is a great place to start. Packed with flavor from fresh herbs and fruit, this broiled cod features a creamy homemade sauce and toasted almonds, along with fennel and broccolini. Enjoy this restaurant-quality dish with a crisp light-bodied white wine like Pinot Gris or Sauvignon Blanc.

Roast Chicken with Potatoes and Olives

Whether you’re on a Mediterranean diet or you just love the flavors of Greek chicken, this easy sheet pan recipe for roast chicken with fingerling potatoes and kalamata olives should definitely be on your radar. Pair this delicious recipe with a light-bodied white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or Assyrtiko, or try a red wine with dark fruit notes and a hint of spice like Syrah.
