Another one pan meal! 🙂 Did you catch the 14 – One Pan Meals to Save You Time and Clean-up from last week?
And then the Sheet Pan Cajun Chicken that I posted this week?
I hate kitchen clean-up and these meals are so full of flavor, and are so easy to prepare and bake up, it would be silly to dirty up several pots and pans when all you need is a sheet pan!
This happens to be one of those meals in which I will eat the broccoli. Reserving some of the yummy honey garlic sauce to toss your broccoli in before roasting is a must!
Why season your broccoli with salt and pepper, when you can bump up the flavor like BAM! < —- Y’all remember Emeril Lagasse!? Love him! Anyway.
This meal took 40 minutes start to finish. I used frozen broccoli florets that I allowed to thaw out while the chicken and potatoes were cooking, and Kelsie mixed the sauce up.
So…hmm, all I did was slice potatoes and brush some of that sauce on the chicken, place in the oven and remove it.
Kayla washed the sheet pan, which was fairly clean because of the foil. 🙂 I didn’t do much for this dinner, and that’s why one pan meals rock!
Other potatoes to use:
This recipe calls for red potatoes, but I’ve used regular baking style potatoes before, but peeled them. Turned out just as yummy.
Don’t like broccoli?
No problem. You could use brussels sprouts or asparagus in this recipe. Both would be good with that sauce.
I need to feed more than 4 people…
You could totally double and triple these recipes, and as long as you have the sheet pans to accommodate, you can make all of our one pan meals to feed as many people as you’d want.
Talk about a super simple way to feed a crowd.
Lining the pan with foil:
Believe it or not, lining the pan with foil can make all the difference in one pan meals.
Use parchment paper, and it could result in sauce seeping around the edges, and onto the pan.
Using non stick foil is the best bet. And cover the entire pan, including sides. In the picture below, you can see where I left a side open. Don’t do that!
