I am really starting to get into the sheet pan meals. It is just so easy to put together and clean up. This meal has 5 ingredients and an incredible amount of flavor. You can have dinner ready in 30 minutes with most of that time being hands-off. This allows for multitasking at its best.
Tip: Assemble the night before or in the morning before work. This gives the chicken more time to marinate.
- 6 chicken breasts or thighs (I used bone-in thighs)
- Smokey Southwestern Seasoning (see website)
- 1 jar of your favorite salsa (We like Newman’s Peach or Mango)
- 1 c Monterey jack cheese, shredded
- 1 head of broccoli, remove stems
Generously season chicken with smokey southwestern seasoning.
In a large ziplock bag pour in half of the salsa and add the chicken. Massage chicken to work in the seasoning and marinade into the chicken. Marinade as long as you want, or you can just go straight to assembling on a aluminum foil lined sheet pan.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Arrange chicken and broccoli onto sheet pan. Pour remaining salsa onto chicken. Bake in oven for 25 minutes. Sprinkle cheese onto chicken. Bake for 5 more minutes, until cheese is melted. Remove from oven Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
