Sheet Pan Honey Dijon Chicken

Ahh, the sheet pan dinner. It’s the one that constantly saves me time after time when I’ve got a busy schedule, but the problem is that I get sick and tired of the same old combos. I mean, I’ve got this yummy sriracha ranch chicken dinner in rotation from time to time, and of course there’s always my absolute favourite coconut-crusted chicken, but other than that I have a hard time getting creative when it comes to one pan meals.

And that’s a shame because they are the ultimate time saver if you’re looking to whip together a meal in no time. You don’t even really need to go shopping: just look at what veggies you’ve got lying around in your fridge, then whatever protein you’ve got on hand in the freezer.

I don’t know about you but a well-stocked freezer full of meat is key for me surviving the work week. If there’s ever a time where I just don’t have the time to fill out a weekly meal planner or strategically make my grocery list, at least I know I can always count on a chicken breast or two being in the freezer.

So of course, this Sheet Pan Honey Dijon Chicken meal really is full of flavour and will let you kind of put together a last minute dinner on the fly if you’re all over the place during the work week like I am sometimes.

And the secret sauce? SUPER SIMPLE. Olive oil, honey, dijon mustard, some garlic and a little bit of salt and pepper. Mix it all together, coat your chicken in it, add your veggies to a parchment-covered baking sheet then pop it all in the oven for about 15 minutes.

Seriously, there’s just 15 minutes of cook time between you and this dinner. What a badass way to win back some more of your time after work so you can spend it, well, relaxing or going to the gym, or meeting up with friends…or whatever your after work routine is!

With a work trip that’s just passed and going back and forth from my parents’ place in Hamilton to do my photoshoots as I navigate this new schedule I have, I am honestly always looking for quick and easy weeknight wins. Heck, even weekend wins.

I don’t wanna sit here and pretend that I eat every single meal in though because moving back to Toronto has really tempted me to grab food from all my favourite restaurants, seriously. It’s been hard moving back for that very reason: too much temptation!

The good thing is that more than ever there are so many healthy options to eat out on the go (especially near my gym!) so I’m loving just experimenting more than ever in the world of food and just eating non-stop.

Am I the only one who seriously just lives to eat by the way?

I feel like my whole day just surrounds around food, and not because I’m a full-time food blogger LOL.

Honestly, I feel like as soon as I finish eating one meal, I’m already thinking about the next, and how it can be turned into a super gourmet, delicious, healthy option.

Maybe I have a problem. Or maybe I just enjoy the simple things in like like eating and cooking, okay?
