Sheet Pan Honey Mustard Chicken & Vegetables a meal that’s healthy, easy, absolutely delicious, only 30 minutes and such an easy clean up!
I know that it’s Meatless Monday, but you know me. When am I ever one to stick to the rules?
So today is all about Sheet Pan Meals!
Have you ever made a sheet pan meal before?
Apparently it is suppose to be the new “fade”… or at least that’s what the Food Network is saying. Which we all know is the food “authority” … so I thought I’d give it a try. One pot meals were the rave last year, and they were pretty cool but I never tried it. So this year I was determined to do the sheet pan thing.
Ya’ll … it’s AWESOME!
I think I might just turn JHE into a sheet pan blog. It’s healthy, easy, freakin delicious and such an easy clean up! Plus anything that’s made in one pan where all the flavors get to cook together is sure to be a winner!
For this sheet pan meal I thought I would channel my inner autumn self. So I put on a pair of boots, wrapped a scarf around my neck and ….. NOOOO I didn’t do that. It’s 100 degrees outside here in Texas. I just bought a butternut squash and went to it!
The key to this dish is making sure all the vegetables are cut the same size. If you ensure they are the same size they will all cook evenly and everything will be done around the same time.
The best part about this dish is the Honey Mustard glaze that has two different kinds mustards. I slathered it all over the chicken but as it cooks in the oven it starts to spread its gooey deliciousness all over the vegetables. The vegetables will be caramelized on the outside and soft on the inside. To say it’s addicting is an understatement.
I made this dish early in the day … we still had about 2 hours before dinner but I couldn’t help myself. I just kept sneaking vegetables the entire two hours! They were like glorious candy .. but healthy for you!
You are going to love this dish! The flavors are incredible, it can be made ahead of time, but even if you choose not to it still only takes 30 minutes to make!
Bon Appetit my friends. I hope its a great start to your week!
