10 Keto One-Pan Recipes with Easy Cleanup

Keto one-pan meals are the perfect thing to whip up after a long day at work or just when you don't have much energy left in the day. With very little cleanup and a fast, delicious meal in under 30 minutes, one-pan meals will be your new go-to recipes that will become a staple in your household.

Feel free to add more vegetables (like sauteed cabbage, roasted broccoli, roasted cauliflower, roasted brussels sprouts) to your dishes if you're looking for something a bit bulkier. You can usually toss those in the oven and have the rest of the meal ready by the time they're done.

If you want to add your own spin, sub out different meats and vegetables to your liking and tastes!

    I just started looking into keto and wanted to try it out. Thanks for this! I made the sun-dried chicken, it was very rich but good. The Beef stroganoff was amazing!! Making the Philly cheese-steak now. Tomorrow will be the red pepper sauce one, can’t wait.

    • RuledMe on June 29, 2021 at 1:56 pm

      @Jin Astronaut Yes, they were roasted red bell peppers

    • Rosie J. on June 29, 2021 at 2:45 pm

      @Jin Astronaut That is what I used. It was really good.

    • Jin Astronaut on June 30, 2021 at 1:57 pm

    • Jin Astronaut on June 30, 2021 at 1:59 pm

    • Rosie J. on July 1, 2021 at 3:52 pm

      @Jin Astronaut Oh goodness, I don’t know I just used bake mode no convection and I don’t have a microwave mode on my oven. I don’t even know the difference between convection bake or regular bake. Sorry I could not help on this one.

  6. WryLife on June 2, 2021 at 2:11 pm

    This cabbage and bacon is one of my favorite go-to meals, quick, simple and so satisfying. Sometimes I add a fried egg on top of each serving–heaven!

      My mom used to make us fried cabbage and bacon all the time, it was wonderful!

    • leavesofchange on August 20, 2022 at 9:27 pm

      Irish grandad cabbage! Can’t be beaten

    • leavesofchange on August 20, 2022 at 9:29 pm

      I make mine with lard as I’m allergic to dairy.

    • Henderwho on November 16, 2022 at 5:36 pm

      @Paul Davis utter nonsense

  7. KH on July 14, 2021 at 2:06 am

    Our family tried the Philly Cheesesteak Skillet Meal. Excellent taste, but we all agreed, the recipe tells you to get a masher out and mash the meat and cauliflower. This gave it a bit of a grainy texture under the cheese which was not pleasing. Don’t mash it, make it small pieces, but don’t mash…it would have been perfect had we left the food more chunky.

  8. The Orignal J T on July 28, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    My daughter has lost 30 lbs in the past 6-8 weeks and she so inspired me to get moving! Thanks for the ideas 🥰🥰

    • RuledMe on July 30, 2021 at 2:41 pm

      I hope you see the same results as her!

    • Antoinette Novella on November 8, 2022 at 10:42 am

      I would introduce herbs, lettuce, grated celery and carrots. I would be concerned that this diet ignores the benefits of vitamins and minerals also.

  9. Julie Byrne on August 26, 2021 at 2:15 am

    You made this look so easy. Someone did a great job filming and putting this together!

    • George North on October 29, 2021 at 12:06 am

      Keto is easy, it’s basically just meat and veggies. And chaffles.

    • Jessica Iwaskow on November 8, 2021 at 6:27 pm

      It looks easy because it is. Measure everything out before hand and it helps it seem that way

    This is what I love about keto recipes, easy to make without much fuss. Thanks for a great video

  11. Convair on November 25, 2021 at 8:06 pm

    I’ve been wanting to start Keto and found most recipes were laborious and over the top with too many ingredients. You’re a genius! One Pan meals in 30 minutes or less, it’s healthy! So glad I found your channel. I have shopped all the ingredients for the 10 recipes and will make each and every one of them for the next 10 days. Stay blessed 🙏

    • dana102083 on May 28, 2022 at 4:04 am

      ​@Richard Baumgart hey! hope youre doing well and progressing on a ketogenic diet. I just wanted to add on a few comments from the ramblings here. Im guessi g your doctor said somethong like “some oils arent very ketogenic”.. but not referring to being kicked out of ketosis, but outside the alignment of what causes inflammation. the omega3 to 6 ratio is important and certainly some ppl feel high omega6s can cause disease, including diabetes eben without insulin resistance. its best to reduce the toxic load in our body. the other tjing i wanted to mention is protein on the plate. remember if you’re trying to be in a calorie deficit, you take away the energy (fat for keto) and keep protein hitting your target at the same weight. so it looks like high protein but your body is burning body fat for its needs as well. i dont like looking at keto 75-20-5 because thats at maintenance!! its more like 35%ingested fat/40% body fat-20-5. so it sure looks atkins on your plate. remember atkins is a ketosis diet until maintenance then is low carb. Most people dont eat enough protein which is a disaster. eating protein with fat is the best way to avoid larger sugar raises but does take a lot to kick you out. lastly..you dont actually know if something kicks you put of ketosis unless you measure it. acfter a while you know how it feels. I really hope youre fat adapted and feeling trim. these notes are for everyone. I only use a tbsp or less sun dried tomatoes. you can partially rehydrate and use less as well. I always change recipes to my.liking. when i stared keto 3 yrs ago i had to stay below 20g carbs and now i can be looser and not feel a thing. I only eat animal fats, coconut oil avocado oil and sometimes olive..and cold sesame oil once a month. take care!!

    • billiejean baccus on July 18, 2022 at 1:23 pm

      Didnt like the cheese steak 1 tho. But I Liked the rest. Looked goo

    • **adembasou** on August 5, 2022 at 11:14 am

      @RuledMe great Recipes, very keto friendly.
      And nevermind negative folks who have a problem for every solution+are imho denatured and to feel sorry 4, do not waste Yer Energy 2 debate them 🙂 Oh and 1 Word of Caution: Allways cook Green Beans at least 10 Minutes not less, they can poison you otherwise, i allmost died one Time bc i tried them after 5 Minutes, only 3 small Peaces. Just saying.

    • **adembasou** on August 5, 2022 at 11:17 am

      @Richard Baumgart so u drink pure poison which will make u gain weight in addition (aspartame) and garbage (soda) but u worry about natural tomatoes? drink water or fruit infused water instead, or homemade icetea with lemon, then u won’t have to worry about nature. Everything Natural is fine in Balance and Moderation and low Carb is better then pure Keto anyhow. Organic Potatoes for Example are very healthy for the Body if steamed and eaten with Butter, Parsley and Seasalt, instead Fried to Death. Or make a nice Veggies with Cream Sauce to go allong with them. In any Case its up to u to take this Comment and find something helpfull in it. If not or find something wrong with it, then thats up to u as well. I said all there was to say. 🙂 Have nice Day, Life is a beautifull Gift and People who are greatfull for it can see find Beauty in simple Things.

    • RuledMe on August 5, 2022 at 7:50 pm

      @**adembasou** Thank you! I reply to comments because I know people read them and might also have the same viewpoint as the commenter so I like to make sure that the proper information is in the comments.

  12. Vic Buch on January 13, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    I made the creamy sundried tomato and chicken recipe and was very concerned at first when the cheese that I coated the chicken with stuck to the bottom of the pan and turned into a big clump of cheese. I proceeded with the recipe and in the end, everything worked out and it was absolutely fantastic! My husband, who hates leftovers, said he wanted it for lunch the next day, and again for dinner! Now that’s saying a lot!!! Woohoo!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    • RuledMe on January 13, 2022 at 6:57 pm

      That’s awesome to hear – I’m really happy that both of you enjoyed it! 😁

    • Dookie on July 15, 2022 at 8:47 am

      I really wanna make this one too! But aren’t sun dried tomatoes not keto friendly? Just curious

    • dkop on August 3, 2022 at 1:30 am

      @Dookie There are 23.5 net carbs per cup of sun-dried tomatoes. So, since one cup was used in this recipe, and there are six chicken thighs, it works out to be less than 4 carbs worth of sun-dried tomato per chicken thigh. Not bad!

    • Frances Ruiz on September 11, 2022 at 11:36 pm

      I was thinking about the cheese too, thanks for clarifying that.

  13. PandiieBear on January 13, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    I love that you showed different options for cooking fats! I have always used veg oil or butter for everything but since I’m cutting out all the vegtable oils, it’s nice to know what I can use instead! Can’t wait to try these!

  14. Les Leopold on January 20, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Just made the sliced cabbage and bacon. Put in a bowl and topped with sour cream. Delicious and easy to prepare!! Thanks for the recipe!!

    • Michael Watkins on May 3, 2022 at 8:28 pm

      I would add cherry tomatoes, But that looked amazing

  15. Ann Moore on February 14, 2022 at 2:14 am

    A perfect set of very simple ideas and basic ingredients to keep me going with a wonderful variety. I love one pan meal cooking. Thank you so much! These will be in my weekly rotation.

      Happy to help out. I’d love to know what you think when you do get around to making them!

    • The Middle Earth Collector on November 19, 2022 at 1:09 am

      Thanks for the comment, I wanted to see how someone did on lowering their blood sugars doing this. I found out about 2-3 weeks ago I am diabetic type 2. I have to lower my blood sugars big time too. Cheers

  17. Zosia Matias on March 12, 2022 at 2:28 am

    I started kito in November, lost 30 lbs, I’m 84 , I can’t believe how good I’m feeling, thanks for the different recipes!
