How to Make Honey Garlic Baked Chicken and Veggies

Step 1

Preheat the oven 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

In a small microwave safe bowl, add the coconut aminos, avocado oil, honey, minced garlic, rice wine vinegar, and ground ginger. Microwave for 10 to 20 seconds, just enough to melt the honey so it combines into the sauce. Alternatively, you could do this in a small pot over the stovetop too.

Step 3

In a large bowl, add the chicken thighs, broccoli florets, mushrooms, carrots, and cashews.

Add the bottom half of the sliced green onions (the lighter green to white parts). Reserve the tops (the darker green parts) for garnish, into the bowl with the chicken.

Add the sauce into the bowl with the chicken and veggies and toss to coat it completely. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and spread evenly. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional).

Step 4

Bake for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165°F.

Step 5

Add more sesame seeds on top for serving and the reserved green onions. Serve with rice, cabbage, or seaweed.

How to Serve

We usually serve this with white rice, purple cabbage, and seaweed. Delaney being from Maui, well, rice is like a second language to him. So, rice is always a must! Usually, all three of these additions accompany this dish. But sometimes if I don’t want rice, I’ll just have this over a bed of purple cabbage. Green cabbage is also delicious too and you can use either one you have on hand!

I like serving this with sweet chili sauce. You can also add more coconut aminos (or soy sauce) onto your rice. If you like spicy then feel free to add siracha to this as well, Delaney always does! You can also serve this with brown rice, quinoa, or just on its own!

Tips for Honey Garlic Baked Chicken and Veggies

• If you want an even leaner meal, then swap out the chicken thighs for chicken breasts. Just be sure to check to make sure chicken is done and don’t over bake. Breasts can try out easier than thighs, so you want to bake them just until cooked thoroughly.

• You can use soy sauce in place of coconut aminos if you want. They have a very similar flavor. I prefer coconut aminos as soy is a hormone disrupter, something I didn’t know for a long time! I love soy sauce, but I’ve had to eliminate it from my diet recently as I’ve had some hormone issues (way too many years on birth control!). Coconut aminos is an amazing alternative to soy sauce, and I actually like it even more as I’m a huge fan of coconut! I used the Big Tree Farm Gingery Lime Coconut Aminos Marinade in this recipe that I listed above, but I also have made this with plain Coconut Aminos too, either one will work, they just have a little different flavor (I prefer the lime one!).

• You can replace the veggies with any you like. Other options that would be great in this dish are bell peppers, zucchini, celery, red onion, white onion – whatever you like or have on hand will work!

• I actually used mini carrots in this dish, which is why they are sliced like that as I cut them into quarters. You can use whole carrots and just slice them into rounds too, either way will work!

• I use cashews in this dish as I love the flavor of the cashews with the honey and garlic. But almonds are also a great option and I’ve used them before too! You can also omit the nuts completely if you don’t have them or can’t eat nuts.

• You can swap out the avocado oil for extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil. If you want to add in sesame oil, then replace half the oil with sesame oil as you just want a small amount as sesame oil packs a lot of flavor!

• If you are planning to serve with rice, be sure to start the rice before you start the chicken that way it’s ready at the same time.

FAQ's

What can I serve with this dish?

I love serving this with white rice as that's my favorite! You could also serve it with brown rice, quinoa, or over a bed of cabbage.

Can I use different veggies?

Yes, absolutely! This recipe is super flexible, so feel free to use veggies that you have in your fridge. Other veggies that would be good in this recipe are cauliflower, zucchini, onion, or bell peppers!

Can I use chicken breasts?

Yes, if you prefer chicken breasts you can use those instead. I like to use thighs when baking as thighs don't dry out as easily, but both will work!

Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. Organic ingredients are free of GMOs, additives, chemicals, and pesticides. And because of that, their flavor shines through more. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, choose organic ingredients for more flavorful strawberries, betting tasting bell peppers, and meats that are pasture-raised and free of GMOs.

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! I linked all the exact ingredients I used when making this recipe in the Ingredients section. You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here.
