This Healthy Maple Mustard Chicken is a delicious, healthy sheet pan dinner! Paleo, gluten free & ready in under 30 minutes – your family will love it!
I’m seriously about to grace you with the easiest, tastiest dinner ever made – Healthy Maple Mustard Chicken. It’s one of my absolute favorite quick, simple dinners to make. I love this chicken because it’s made on one sheet pan, which means ONE dish to wash.. yes, you read that right. It also has the most delicious maple/mustard marinade that I legit want to put on pretty much everything – I think you’l love it!
I came up with this recipe last year during what was probably the busiest month of my life. I was working full time, training to become a fitness instructor, doing tons of freelance work, AND trying to build my website to a point where I could quit my job to pursue this as a full time gig. During that busy season of my life… I needed EASY recipes to fall back on, and this Healthy Maple Mustard Chicken quickly became a weekly staple
Now, I certainly am not one to eat the same thing every week (unless it’s of course tacos which we usually do have 1x a week) I used to make the same thing over and over again every week in college and it pretty much burnt me out. Tyler is even pickier than I am and will usually say ‘Really… xyz meal?? Again!?’ He definitely doesn’t like to eat the same things repeatedly, so to keep both of us happy I try to keep a little variety with our weekly dinners. However, even though we like to switch it up… we always find ourselves coming back to this Healthy Maple Mustard Chicken as a staple.
Meals that are easy to make and taste amazing deserve to be on repeat, in my opinion – and this recipe is just that! The key to this recipe is that everything cooks at the same time, so you can just toss it in the oven + not have to think about it. Chicken get’s marinated in a yummy maple mustard sauce, and the extra marinade gets tossed right on the brussels sprouts!
I’ve had a few people ask if this is safe to do because you’re technically cross contaminating the brussels with raw chicken marinade. If you were cooking the vegetables at a different temperature than the chicken, this would be a BIG no. Since everything is going in the oven at once and cooking for the same time – you’re in the clear! However, if this idea still bothers you, simply divide the marinade up before adding it to the chicken!
I know you’re going to love this easy + delicious paleo sheet pan dinner as much as we do. Once you taste that sweet/salty maple mustard combo, you’re totally going to fall in love!
