The pioneer woman star Ree Drummond loves a good supper on a plate. This type of meal usually consists of protein, carbohydrates and vegetables cooked together in a large baking dish. On his Food Network TV series, Drummond showcased several of these easy and convenient meals. The great thing about supper on a baking sheet is that cleanup is a snap. Drummond took a basic recipe for chicken and potatoes and spiced it up with lemon and thyme to create a taste sensation.
