An easy one pan chicken dinner recipe, boneless, skinless chicken breasts are brushed with dijon mustard and roasted with broccoli.
Chicken breasts are one of my go-to ingredients for a healthy, protein-packed weeknight dinner but they can get a little boring if you don’t know what to do with them, am I right?
Sheet pan dinners (also known as one pan dinners) are one of my favorite ways to create a lean meal that is full of flavor and requires minimal cleanup.
Ideal for using whatever meat, fish and/or vegetables you have on hand, I love how simple yet satisfying they are to make.
To create this one pan chicken and broccoli recipe at home, you simply drizzle chicken and broccoli with olive oil, salt and pepper. I always add a little lemon juice either before I throw it in the oven or when it comes out of the oven.
Then, before baking, you brush each chicken breast with dijon mustard to lock in the juices and add flavor. As the broccoli roasts, it caramelizes and becomes slightly sweet.
To serve, simply slice up the chicken breasts and divide the broccoli between four plates. I like to sprinkle with fresh parsley before serving but that’s optional.
