An Easy Clean-Up Chicken Dinner to Add to Your Rotation
This one-pan meal could not be any easier. There are essentially two main steps to preparing it. Begin by cutting up your chicken breast, broccoli florets, red onion, and sweet potatoes. Once they’re cut, toss all the ingredients onto a baking sheet, including the olive oil, salt, crushed red pepper, and dried thyme. Then, mix everything until it’s evenly combined.
Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked all the way through and the sweet potatoes are tender. Be sure to mix the ingredients every 15 minutes or so to ensure that it all gets cooked to perfection. And just like that, a delicious and simple, healthy dinner is ready to enjoy. Plus, because you only used one pan, clean-up is simpler than ever!
