Sheet Pan Korean Chicken and Vegetables are a delicious and easy weeknight meal that cooks in one pan and makes crispy tender vegetables and moist sweet and garlicky chicken.
Sheet Pan Korean Chicken and Vegetables make dinnertime a breeze with the best of all worlds… one dish to wash, lots of surface area where you can have a lot of delicious caramelization going on for both the chicken and the veggies and since it all cooks in the oven it is basically totally hands off.
The directions for the Sheet Pan Korean Chicken and Vegetables call for everything to be tossed together in a bowl before adding it to the sheet pan, but truth be told I usually just mix it all up on the sheet pan and spread it out without worrying about how pretty or not it is on the sheet pan.
I like to make photos pretty for you all, but as long as you have space between the pieces of food you’ll get a great result out of the oven.
Over the last few months we’ve been making a lot of sheet pan meals around the house because they’re so easy and it forces us to have vegetables with out meals. Sometimes when I would be cooking in a skillet I would just toss some rice onto the plate and pile on the chicken. Vegetables were becoming an afterthought. We even got to the point we would just microwave some frozen veggies and toss it into the skillet before serving (which is fine, don’t get me wrong, veggies being eaten are the point here!). With these sheet pan meals I find that we’re making use of (and not trashing!) all our fresh vegetables again and they taste so much better than microwaved frozen vegetables!
Tools used in the making of this Sheet Pan Korean Chicken and Vegetables recipe:
Sheet Pan: A classic, inexpensive sheet pan that is high quality and can hold up to high temperatures in the oven.
Sesame Oil: The flavor of sesame oil in this dish is unmistakeable and not really able to be substituted. Some Asian grocery stores will try and sell less expensive options that aren’t actually sesame oil, so just be sure the one you’re buying is authentic sesame oil.
Sriracha: You need this in your kitchen, it is the perfect way to add a nice even heat to dishes without a unique chili (like jalapeno or another chili that imparts flavor in addition to heat) or smoky flavor.
