If you’ve been following us closely, you may have noticed that we use a LOT of of chicken in our recipes. This recipe is no different. If you’re a chicken master now, this meal is gonna be a piece of cake.
We’re spicing this chicken up with some oven roasted vegetables this go ’round. Don’t listen to your childhood self. Brussel sprouts and broccoli are incredible. We’re also adding yams to the mix (just kidding… we’re calling them sweet potatoes. Yams sound disgusting).
Try it out and tell your friends!
- 1 head of broccoli, washed
- 1 bag of Brussel sprouts, washed
- 1 sweet potato, also washed
- 1 chicken breast, pounded thin
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Garlic powder
- Optional: Cayenne
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees (Fahrenheit – this is America)
- Cut sweet potato into bite-sized cubes
- Break up head of broccoli into bite-sized florets
- Rinse your brussel sprouts throughly (they usually have a decent amount of dirt still on them). Then cut the ends of the Brussel sprouts off and cut them in half (hotdog or hamburger style, it doesn’t matter!)
- Lay out vegetables on a sheet pan (we had to use 2 pans because we had an abundance of vegetables to roast up)
- Drizzle a light amount of olive oil on the veggies and toss them with your hands until all the veggies are fully coated. Next, season generously with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.
- Toss the veggies with your hands again so that all the veggies are coated evenly with olive oil and seasoning.
- Roast veggies for 15 minutes. Set a timer on your phone!!!
- Cook your chicken how we always do! (According to these instructions)
- Remove veggies from oven and mix them up/ flip them. Roast veggies for an additional 15-20 minutes. Set a timer again!!! (Check on the brussels early as they sometimes cook faster)
- Plate the veggies and chicken strips however you want.
- Top with Cayenne if you’re a fan of a little heat and enjoy!
There seems like there are lots of steps, but there is very little actual work. Using the oven is such a relaxing way to cook. You just pop it all in the oven, set an alarm, and chill out. Pour yourself a glass of red wine, and watch a little Frasier! Let the oven do the work for you. 🙂
