I'm sure you know that a sheet pan, sometimes called a baking tray or baking sheet is a flat, rectangular metal pan used in an oven! They are excellent for using in many recipes, but especially so the one pan type, because it saves washing up! LOL!A paleo-friendly, dairy-free tandoori marinade: this creamy, mildly spicy, Indian-inspired sauce coats the chicken and veggies and keeps them from drying out. If you have a bottle of Nom Nom Paleo Tandoori, use one cup of it in place of making your own marinade!
Take for example this recipe suggestion from Michelle Tam at Nom Nom Paleo site, she writes "this gluten free, keto, (low carb) recipe features:
Boneless, skinless chicken thighs: this thrifty poultry cut is readily available and will taste good even if the oven timer went off 5 minutes ago and you completely forget to take your chicken out. And yes, I SAID THIGHS! Back away from those boneless skinless chicken breastsunless youre willing to monitor them vigilantly while theyre cooking.
Hearty cruciferous vegetables: Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli all work well in this recipe. Just cut them so theyre the same shape and will finish cooking in about 30 minutes. Dont cut them up too small or your veggie pieces will shrivel up and burn before the chicken is finished cooking!
