The sheet-pan meal is often billed as the be-all, end-all convenient dinner, but the reality is a little trickier. (Since when do chicken thighs and broccoli florets cook at the same time?) Jessica Merchant, How Sweet Eats food blogger and author of the new cookbook, Everyday Dinners, has nailed the method with her recipe for sheet-pan cashew chicken.
“There aren’t many sheet-pan meals that I’m a fan of,” Merchant writes, “mostly because meat and vegetables have different cooking times. It’s often impossible to throw everything on a sheet pan at once and have each ingredient come out perfect. But—I’ve remedied that situation for this cashew chicken.”
“I like to roast the vegetables first,” she continues, “so they get caramelized and soft. Then I add in the chicken and let it cook, tossing everything together once it’s done. The result is a saucy pan of chicken and vegetables.” Add a pot of steamed rice and dinner is complete.
