This Sheet Pan Sesame Chicken and Veggies makes the perfect weeknight dinner that’s healthy, delicious and easily made all on one pan in under 30 minutes!  Perfect recipe for your Sunday meal prep too!  
A special thanks to PAM Spray Pumps for partnering with me on this post!  As always, all opinions are my own.

Yes I’m back at it again with sheet pan meals because they are literally my go-to weeknight meal and are total lifesavers when things get hectic and busy during the week!  I know that most of you can relate, especially those that have kids, so having the convenience of throwing a complete dinner all on one pan definitely makes life much more bearable.  Easy clean up, delicious flavor and so many leftovers that you won’t even need to worry about what to eat for lunch the next day!

This Sheet Pan Sesame Chicken and Veggies is one of my favorites because it’s a much healthier version of “take-out” that has half the calories, but ALL the flavor!  You can easily prep this the day before too by chopping up all your veggies and marinating the chicken, but if this is a last minute recipe you decided to throw together in a pinch then that’s okay too.  Prep time takes just a few minutes and the sauce only requires 5 simple ingredients so it really is that easy!  Then just toss everything together on the pan and you are good to go.

Not only do sheet pan meals make cleaning up a breeze, but they are also perfect for meal prep!  You can customize this dinner however you’d like to too!  Try using green beans or asparagus in place of the broccoli or throw in some chopped onions or even sweet potatoes.  Trust me this sauce tastes great on EVERYTHING so go crazy and make this to your liking!  Serve this over brown rice or some quinoa for a complete meal that is delicious and much healthier than ordering take-out in the middle of the week.

I can’t stress to you how convenient PAM Spray Pumps are for meal-prepping.  I mean they are seriously a MUST in the kitchen especially when you are cooking a lot of different things all at once.  They really help you cut down on the amount of oil you’re using and because PAM has superior non-stick performance, you don’t have to worry about scraping those veggies, potatoes, chicken or even fish off of the pan because they stuck right to it!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large head of broccoli, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional toppings: sesame seeds and green onions

For the sauce:
  • ¼ cup lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp. fresh ginger

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. To make the sauce: In a small saucepan, heat soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, honey, garlic and ginger on medium heat and bring to a boil. Turn down heat and allow sauce to simmer, whisking occasionally, until sauce is thick and bubbly. Remove from heat.
  3. Spread chicken and chopped veggies on a baking sheet sprayed with PAM cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle half the sauce over the chicken and veggies (reserving the other half for later) and toss to combine. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, tossing halfway through, and continue cooking until veggies are tender and chicken is cooked through.
  4. Drizzle remaining sauce over top and sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions. Serve over brown rice or quinoa and enjoy!
