A Healthy Dinner Recipe

One of the easiest ways to get my kids to eat vegetables is to roast them. Roasting brings out all the sweetness a vegetable has to offer and thankfully, it also seems like the easiest way to make them.

We love making sheet pan dinners like this Sheet Pan Garlic Chicken and Asparagus because they are so easy to make and everyone loves them!

You can swap out the vegetables in this sheet pan dinner if you don’t like asparagus. Maybe try broccoli or cauliflower, even a combination of a few different kinds. The key to this easy chicken dinner is marinating the chicken ahead of time, that’s what gives it all the flavor!

Ingredients For This Chicken Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons garlic
  • 2 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh black pepper

Just a few ingredients, but this chicken marinade is so flavorful you’re going to be using it on everything!

We like to marinate this chicken overnight but at least 4 hours will give you some flavor. After the chicken has marinated, dry off most of the marinade with paper towels so that the chicken gets a nice sear on the sheet pan.

For this recipe we’re using fresh asparagus, which also gets tossed into the marinade at the last minute, right before roasting. The asparagus doesn’t have to marinate, just a quick toss in the marinade will work.

Now it’s time to get this sheet pan dinner into the oven!
