Tips and Tricks to making Sheet Pan Cheesy Roasted Potatoes with "Chicken" and Vegetables
The potatoes must be slightly cooked ahead of time before going in the oven or else the other vegetables and mock meats will burn while the potatoes remain undercooked. This can be done in the microwave by nuking it covered for 5 minutes or steaming for 8 minutes.
Flip, mix and toss the potatoes, vegetables and chicken around the halfway mark so they roast evenly.
Change up the vegetables by using whatever you have left in the fridge! Carrots, broccoli and cauliflower work perfectly in this roast as well.
If meal prepping ahead of time, I recommending adding in the cheese sauce just before eating so the vegetables do not get soggy.
If you want to save washing time and prevent washing bowls, here’s a trick I almost always do with potatoes. I chop them up and then place them onto the baking tray and pop those into the oven then preheat the oven. The potatoes tend to cook slightly as the oven is preheating. I do this all the time and it saves me so much time.

Start by chopping up the potatoes and laying them on and nuking them into the microwave for 5 minutes. In the mean time, prep all your oter vegetables by cutting them all into approximately equal sizes.
Once the potatoes are done, preheat your oven to 425 F.
Toss everything together into a large bowl along with the spices and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes and vegetables are golden brown. Remember to turn your tray and toss/flip the ingredients half way.
Transfer back into a bowl (or do it on your sheet pan) and toss in cheese sauce! Adjust salt and pepper accordingly.
