Garden fresh vegetables and chicken bathed in honey garlic goodness and cooked simply on a sheet pan. Get your rice cooking, dinner will be ready soon!
When the garden starts producing, I love to come up with fun and simple dinners that are loaded with vegetables. This sheet pan honey garlic chicken dinner is a great way turn a lot of those in season veggies into a stir fry style dinner. The best part is you don’t even have to stand over the hot stove.
This is a super simple dinner to make. Cutting up the vegetables is probably the biggest chore, and it’s not like you need a fine dice so even that goes quickly.
I like to marinate both the meat and veggies. That way everything is soaked in flavor before you even start cooking.
After a nice bath in flavor, just arrange it all on a greased sheet pan and let the oven do the work for you. Easy peasy!
While the meal cooks, I cook some rice to serve with it. I’ve been loving using my instant pot for rice.
It just takes one touch of a button and it’s done. Plus it eliminates the little splatters of starchy water I always get when I do it on the stove.
While everything cooks, kick your feet up for a minute. Go ahead, you deserve it!
Long before you are ready for your break to be over, dinner will be done. It’s nutritious and delicious too!
I love how everything gets a light coating of flavor in this recipe but there’s not an overpowering and gloppy sauce. Just enough to make it good.
We like ours with a drizzle of sriracha. Little Dude of course prefers his without.
