An easy one pan roasted chicken and broccoli dinner recipe made with boneless, skinless chicken breasts and brushed with Dijon mustard.
Sheet pan dinners are one of my favorite ways to create a lean meal that is full of flavor and requires minimal prep and cleanup. Ideal for using whatever meat, fish, and/or vegetables you have on hand, I love how simple yet satisfying they are to make. My One Pan Roasted Chicken and Broccoli uses just 5 ingredients, and gives you the great base for a well balanced meal!
- Chicken: Chicken breasts are a great lean source of protein, as well as being easily accessible and affordable wherever you are! You could also use chicken thighs.
- Broccoli: A great source of antioxidants and other vitamins, roasting the broccoli with the chicken caramelizes it and makes it a little sweet.
- Olive oil: Along with the Dijon
- Dijon mustard: Locks in the moisture so the chicken doesn’t dry out while cooking, while also adding great flavor!
- Salt & pepper: Classic seasoning to enhance the flavors of the dish.
How to Make One Pan Roasted Chicken and Broccoli
Start your roasted chicken and broccoli by taking your chicken breasts and laying them out on a sheet pan and scattering your broccoli florets around them. Drizzle everything with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper, tossing and flipping to get both sides.
Then take your Dijon mustard and brush each chicken breast with it. Toss in the oven at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes, flipping about halfway through.
Drizzle with lemon juice and garnish with fresh basil or parsley, serve, and enjoy your One Pan Roasted Chicken and Broccoli!
Shake It Up
- Add more veggies. Along with the broccoli or instead of, throw in some potatoes, green beans, Brussels sprouts, or whatever is in that bottom drawer of your fridge!
- Make it cheesy. Sprinkle on some parmesan cheese at the end to add another layer of flavor.
