Hawaiian Chicken Sheet Pan Meal
1.5 lbs. chicken breast or boneless skinless chicken thighs, cubed
Salt and pepper (to taste)
1 Tbsp. canola oil (or your favorite oil)
1 large red bell pepper, diced
1 large orange bell pepper, diced
½ red onion, cut into chunks
½ c. barbecue sauce (plus more for drizzling)
1 c. pineapple chunks, canned (drained) or fresh
Juice of 1 lime
Cilantro and white sesame seeds for garnish
6 c. cooked brown or white rice (as an accompaniment)
Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper and spraying with oil. In a large mixing bowl, season chicken breast with salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil.
Next, add bell peppers, red onion and barbecue sauce to chicken. Use your hands to coat thoroughly. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, then remove sheet pan and add pineapple chunks. Return to the oven for 15 to 20 more minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 F. Remove sheet pan from oven and squeeze lime juice over all. Add cilantro and sesame seeds to garnish. Serve with a side of rice.
