This Asian chicken sheet pan meal is so flavorful and perfect for busy weeknights. It bakes up in 20 minutes and tastes delicious served over rice!

It’s been a minute since I’ve shared a sheet pan dinner but they’ve become a staple in our kitchen lately so I’m super excited to share this new recipe! I kept it simple with chicken, vegetables and a super easy Asian sauce. Just mix, put it in the oven, set the timer and you’ve got a healthy dinner in no time.

Why I Love Sheet Pan Meals

  1. Time. I don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands so I need quick and easy meals that are also healthy. Prep this meal in 15 minutes, bake for 20 minutes and just like that, dinner is served!
  2. Dishes. Maybe you love doing the dishes but I know the last thing I want to do after cooking a full meal is a million dishes. This entire recipe can be made with one bowl and one baking sheet. This means minimal clean up and less dishes. You’re welcome.
  3. So easy your husband can make it. I love easy meals that I can put my husband in charge of and Isaac feels completely comfortable making this meal because it doesn’t have a lot of steps and isn’t very intense when it comes to prep work or clean up.

Ingredients Needed for this Asian Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

  • chicken – I used chicken breasts but chicken thighs would work great too.
  • vegetables – I used yellow bell pepper, carrots, snap peas and red onion. Want to take a shortcut? Use a packaged stir fry mix from the grocery store so you can skip the chopping. I recommend fresh veggies over frozen if you go this route.
  • rice – for serving (white, brown rice or cauliflower rice all work great)
  • sauce – this meal has a simple sauce made from tamari, honey, garlic, ginger and chili paste.

The recipe for this Asian chicken sheet pan dinner is really straight forward, but I thought I would leave you with some “pro tips” to cut some corners:

  • Use pre-prepped veggies. I mentioned this above but there is no shame in making this simple dinner even easier. Grab a bag of fresh stir fry veggies and call it a day. If you’re running short on time or don’t feel like chopping any veggies… this can be a game-changer, trust me!
  • Mix the sauce in a large bowl. Want to cut back on one more dish? Mix your sauce in the large bowl and then add the rest of the ingredients to the large bowl and toss to coat!
  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up. No one likes scraping baked sauce and leftover tidbits from a pan, right? This tip is key if you want clean up to be a breeze.
  • After your sheet pan meal is in the oven, don’t forget to prep your rice for serving!

    Well this was just so easy and so delicious. I didn’t expect the sauce to be as strong as it was and we loved it! The ginger and the honey especially. This one is going in the rotation!

    THANK YOU FOR THIS RECIPE! My bf loves Asian food and I try to stay Paleo and we adore this meal! This is a staple dinner in our house. We probably eat it 2-3 times a month. It is so quick and easy and still tastes good as leftovers.
    *We use coconut aminos instead of tamari, and chili powder instead of chili paste. Also, we usually almost double the sauce so our cauliflower rice is coated. THANK YOU!

    Soooo tasty! My son is home from college for the holiday and we cooked this recipe together. It came together quickly, super healthy and so delicious. We like spice so double the garlic chili sauce and also the ginger and garlic. He said he can’t wait to cook it for his roommates when he is back at school. Thanks so much Brittany!
