One Pan Sweet Garlic Chicken with Vegetables (Slow Cooker version also included)
Who doesn’t love a quick, one pan dinner? Less mess to clean up and so easy to assemble and throw in the oven! And even better? You cook your veggies alongside that savory garlic chicken sauce, letting the juices run loose as your vegetables get roasted to crisp-tender perfection. Yum!
Now you can use any type of veggies that you want, you just have to be be aware of cooking times for them. I used red skinned potatoes because I had some that I needed to use up. Sweet potatoes or butternut squash would work just as nicely. Green beans, carrots or cauliflower could be used instead of broccoli.
My kids love this dish!
Don’t have time when you get home to throw this in the oven? That’s okay! This dish can also be made in the slow cooker! Just mix up the sauce, put everything in the slow cooker, pour the sauce over and 7-8 hours later, your dinner is ready when you walk in the door! It can’t get any easier then that!
