You know how one pot meals are basically the best things EVER?
This is exactly like a one pot meal, but it’s a one sheet meal instead! You throw everything onto one baking sheet, bake for thirty to forty minutes, and dig in! SO easy.
The best part about this recipe, however, isn’t the simplicity. The best part is the flavor that comes from the brown sugar and Dijon mustard.
Oh….my goodness. It is seriously heaven.
The deep, complex flavor from the marinade, the crispy baked chicken skin, the juicy meat….there are no words.
You just need to make it so you can taste it ?.
Here are the reasons why this dish is so BOSS:
- Everything is thrown together and baked on one sheet pan. Aka – simplicity. Aka – easy cleanup. Aka – awesome.
- You have a complete meal when you are finished. Meat. Vegetables. Starch. And no extra dishes or preparations are necessary! Score.
- The flavor. Brown sugar + Dijon mustard + a few dashes of Worcestershire = ???.
- It’s healthy, but also super satisfying.
- It’s all baked on one sheet pan. I know I already said that…BUT IT DESERVES TWO REASONS!
So remember on Wednesday when I told you about Boone ripping apart a carton of chicken stock on our new(ish) couch, effectively soaking all the cushions in MEAT BROTH?!?
There has been a new development.
I came home yesterday to a decimated cushion. He ate the cushion!!! Ripped it apart! There was stuffing all over our living room!
This dog is about to kill me.
I don’t understand how I still love him so dang much even after all his INSANE destruction. Sigh…
I was on the phone with Ashley Furniture for the next hour trying to explain to them that my dog spilled chicken stock all over our couch, ate the marinated cushion, and that I need to replace it.
Just one cushion…not all of them…not the entire couch…just the one cushion. It was a very complicated conversation that included conference calls with multiple stores.
I love that dog, but goodness gracious he causes some serious household destruction.
He did approve of this chicken, though. He made that abundantly clear by pulling the baking sheet off the stove and licking it 100% clean.
Thanks for the help, Boonie. You made the clean up easier than it already was ?.Print
