Any dinner that can be made using just one sheet pan is a winner in my house and this One Pan Spicy Peanut Chicken and Broccoli is seriously amazing.
The minute I saw this Spicy Chicken and Broccoli Sheet Pan Supper from Molly Gilbert, I couldn't wait to try it. It basically has everything I love all in one recipe. And minimal clean up makes it something I can get really excited about. Her recipe is basically perfect, I just made a few small changes to make it a bit lighter by swapping in reduced fat peanut butter and using a little bit less than she calls for. I also added garlic to the sauce because I pretty much want garlic in everything. If you like this recipe, I recommend checking out her amazing cookbook - Sheet Pan Suppers. It's fill of more delicious recipes like this one.

- 1/4 cup reduced fat peanut butter
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce (GF if needed)
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 1 tbsp. sesame oil
- 1 tbsp. honey (leave out for low carb)
- 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
- 2 tsp. Sriracha
- 2 U garlic cloves, minced
- 1 U lime, juice
- 1 lb. broccoli florets
- 1.33 lbs boneless skinless chicken, sliced into cutlets
Preheat the oven to broil with a rack about 4 inches from the broiler. Line a sheet pan with foil.
Whisk together the peanut butter, soy sauce, water, sesame oil, honey, rice vinegar, Sriracha, garlic, and lime juice. Save about 1/4 of the sauce to serve as a dipping sauce on the side.
Rub the chicken and broccoli with the remaining sauce to thickly coat. Arrange in a single layer on the pan. Cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping chicken halfway through. Watch the recipe carefully since it can burn quickly. You want the sauce to get thick and bubbly with the chicken just cooked through and broccoli beginning to char. One note: If you want your broccoli to be more tender crisp, add it to the sheet pan halfway through cooking.
