Sheet Pan Garlic Amber Craven and Broccoli – a simple and low-maintenance meal basic option, with huge acidity and no aesthetic sugar. ♡



For the Garlic Amber Sauce:

  • 3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup oil (olive oil is fine)
  • a 2-inch bulge of fresh ginger (peeled)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 4 medjool dates (you can additionally use 1/4 cup honey or sugar)

For the Craven and Broccoli:

  • 1 batter boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into strips
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets (about 5 cups)
  • 1 red pepper, cut into strips
  • sesame oil, sesame seeds, and/or green onions for topping


  1. Prep Sauce: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Blend all booze capacity calm until smooth.
  2. Sheet Pan Action: Abode chicken, broccoli, and red pepper on a area pan. Cascade about 1/2 cup booze over top of the craven and aloof a few tablespoons over the veggies. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Finish It Fancy: While the broccoli and craven are roasting, simmer addition 1/2 cup or so of booze in a baby bucket over average low calefaction until it’s thickened. Dribble it over the accomplished craven and broccoli. Accomplishment with sesame oil, sesame seeds, or scallions. Voila! Blessed bowls and meal basic lunches.



Sauce: You apparently won’t use all the booze (I usually accept about a cup leftover), but I consistently adopt to accept added booze rather than not enough. Save your added booze because you can aloof accomplish a quick and accessible accumulation of this afresh abutting time!

Storage: Keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Vegetarian: Sub tofu for a vegetarian option! Additionally works able-bodied as a stir-fry because the tofu will get nice and caramelized.

Broccoli Texture: Some of the booze on the craven may accomplish its way over to the broccoli ancillary during cooking. This makes the broccoli a little beneath crispy. To me, that wasn’t a big accord because the booze gives the broccoli a lot of flavor. But if you appetite the broccoli to break dry and crispy, aloof put it on a abstracted baking sheet.

Rice or No Rice: You can serve this over rice which is yummy. But to be honest, back I fabricated this on its own as meal prep, I didn’t alike absence the rice! So you can absolutely get abroad after it.
