Sheet pan balsamic chicken is a one pan meal with everything you need for a complete dinner.
Does everything go on one sheet? Sounds like two sheets?
This cooking method worked out really well. I normally use a George Foreman grill for fajitas, but not anymore! I used a fajita marinade recipe rather than fajita spice. Added the garlic and substituted parsley for cilantro. Chicken turned out moist and delicious. I used 2 sheet pans.
Woohoo! I’m so glad you enjoyed them!
Made this tonight , very easy and we love it! I made the seasoning too. Thank you
