Easy One Sheet Spicy Peanut Chicken with Broccoli

This recipe is new, tasty, fun, clean, easy and quick! What more can a person ask for?!

I’ve never broiled chicken but it turned out great and it cooked  soooo fast! The trick is to have the chicken all one thickness so I pounded it flat with a meat mallet and it was super fun...judge me if you want but it was cathartic. can make this spicier or less spicy depending on how much Sriracha you use. The amount in this dish is on the milder side.

What you need: 

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast pounded to 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 large head broccoli chopped into large florets
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup natural (no sugar added) creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 TBSP rice vinegar
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • 1 TBSP Sriracha
  • 1 TBSP sesame oil

  2. Line a sheet pan with foil (easy clean up) or spray with oil
  3. Whisk together coconut aminos, peanut butter, warm water, vinegar, honey, Sriracha, sesame oil and arrowroot powder together until smooth
  4. Dip chicken in the sauce and place around the sheet pan
  5. Toss the broccoli in the sauce and place in between the chicken pieces
  6. Drizzle the remaining sauce on the arranged chicken and broccoli
  7. Broil for 10-12 minutes (flipping the chicken once half way) until the chicken is cooked all the way through (check often to make sure it's not burning)
