When it comes to my own health, I like to keep an eye on my cholesterol levels. If you didn’t know, high cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in the United States. It can be deceiving because you can’t see or feel it like some other conditions, but it can have serious consequences.

Luckily, it’s super simple to make small lifestyle changes that may help maintain your heart health and keep cholesterol in check. Looking for some tips for heart-healthy meal planning?

Because heart issues run in my family, I focus on incorporating a good balance of healthy recipes that I make for my family.

This is a great low cholesterol chicken dinner idea that is full of flavor and easy to make!

Chicken, broccoli and potatoes are always a win in our home.

Today, I’m sharing one of the easiest ways to put those ingredients together – and stay heart-healthy at the same time! All you need is a sheet pan to roast the ingredients with garlic, rosemary and finish it off with fresh parmesan. It’s easy, healthy and bursting with flavor.

How to make a heart healthy meal

One simple way to reduce cholesterol in every day meals is simple – reduce the amount of fried foods in your diet.

Fried foods contain higher levels of trans fats and are high calorie. Both of these factors can increase risk in heart disease. Moderations is always key of course, but when you can here’s some ways

Alternate cooking methods to frying

A great cooking tip that may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels:

  • Boil
  • Grill
  • Roast
  • Poach
  • Air Fry

Foods to help reduce cholesterol

Another tip that may help to keep your cholesterol down is to add fiber to your diet.

Examples of high fiber foods that are heart healthy:

  • peas
  • legumes
  • apples
  • oranges
  • pears
  • berries
  • broccoli
  • oatmeal

Personally, broccoli is one of my favorite veggies. Especially with a little garlic and butter.

I could eat it every day and it’s a staple in our house. When I have no clue what to make for a side for the kids come dinner time, I just roast up a quick pan of broccoli and everyone is happy.

How to make sheet pan garlic chicken and vegetables

This heart healthy garlic chicken and vegetable sheet pan recipe is so easy to prepare. Simple, clean ingredients and everything is fresh. To top it all off, I drizzled a little extra virgin olive oil and seasoned with shallots, garlic, fresh rosemary, and salt and pepper.

Heres how to make it:

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚ Place chicken breast, potatoes, shallots, and garlic over sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and mix together.
  2. Season with salt, pepper, fresh rosemary. Bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Mix broccoli and tomatoes with a light coating of olive oil salt and pepper; set aside.
  4. After 15 minutes, remove sheet pan, and add broccoli and tomatoes. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes, or until internal temperature of chicken is 165 F.

Then I’ll top with fresh parmesan. Just enough seasoning to bring out the flavors of all the ingredients. It hits the spot and feels like you’ve done your body a favor.

The tomatoes also add a nice, bright acidic touch to this sheet pan recipe that takes it to another level. My wife is a fan of adding a little teriyaki sauce on top combined with a healthy serving of rice, so this recipe has a lot of potential to make it your own!

And, don’t be afraid to get a little char on this dish. You can follow the same directions, and instead of getting your kitchen hot during the summer, try this on the grill using a vegetable rack.

I highly doubt anyone will complain with that variation on the recipe!
