You’ll love the ease of this simple sheet pan dinner! Chicken with a honey garlic sesame glaze baked with broccoli for a complete meal!
I’ve been cranking out some more one pan dinners that make life
a little ALOT easier for you!! For me too. I spent every night of last week at the baseball fields, and the one night we had off, the hubs and I went to a Chris Stapleton concert. And in case you were wondering, he was absolutely AMAZING!!!! You know what else was amazing?!?! This Sheet Pan Dinner…..
I made this super awesomesauce with honey, coconut aminos (or soy sauce), garlic, a splash of vinegar for tang, and then marinated the chicken for about 20 minutes. This would actually be easy to do early in the morning, and then let the chicken marinate all day. But, I do like to test faster marinades for those who might not have the time. I spread out the chicken with some broccoli and carrots (my kids favorite), and drizzled some extra oil and garlic on the veggies.
This will bake for about 20 minutes, maybe a few minutes longer depending on the oven. I also reserved the leftover marinade, and boiled it for a few minutes for extra sauce on top of the chicken and veggies. Serve over rice or cauliflower rice for a super easy dinner!
