For the last 6-8 months, I have been mostly a vegetarian-eating little to no meat. It’s been quite an interesting journey, filled with a lot of weird ups and downs! The hardest thing has been finding recipes that I can eat and easily add some protein for the fam, without cooking two completely different meals. And, this sheet pan honey baked broccoli with chicken checks both of those boxes. It was a family hit.
This is actually an adaptation of an old recipe I had on my blog; honey baked broccoli. That recipe was a simple veggie recipe. But, I decided to take that recipe one step further and create a full meal out it. Honey baked broccoli was something my kids always loved so I thought I would amp it up a bit and add some chicken. I serve it with soy sauce rice (it’s just rice with soy sauce). So, it’s kind of a sweet and salty type situation.
It’s SO easy to make!
Let’s get to the important stuff. This honey baked broccoli and chicken is SO easy to make. I mean any recipe that you cook strictly on a sheet pan is winning to me! Haha. Anyways, it’s really a two-step process. You bake the chicken for a little while, then after that, you add in the broccoli and bake for a little while longer. Done! And, since you cooked it on a parchment paper covered sheet pan, so, you won’t be slaving over dishes for hours. You’re welcome for the extra hour of life. Haha!
