This is one of the go-to weeknight meals in our house because it checks off all our boxes: quick, easy, and healthy. If you have a little more time and despise washing dishes, this can all be cooked in one skillet (I use GreenPan) by sautéing in steps and returning everything back to the pan in the end. It can be even quicker if you are willing to wash one more dish and utilize a sheet pan (my favorite way!).
Additionally, you can change out the sauce you prefer to use based on whatever you have on hand or what you’re in the mood for. I used a pre-made Korean BBQ sauce I found at target (here), but you can also use the asian sauce featured in THIS recipe, or any pre-made sauce you fancy. Note: If you use the premade sauce I used, it is very salty. Cut it 50/50 with rice wine or any other vinegar you have on hand to control the sodium while keeping its delicious flavor.
Homemade Takeout Chicken and Veggies
- 1 package of ground chicken (about 16 oz)
- One head of broccoli, cut into bite size pieces -3 medium sweet potatoes, cut into 1/3 inch pieces (the smaller, the faster they cook) -salt, pepper, olive oil (to taste) -1/2 tsp coriander -1 tsp cumin -1/2 tsp chili powder -1 tsp ground ginger -1/2 tsp turmeric -3/4 of a cup of asian style sauce of choice
- If using sheet pan, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread sweet potatoes and broccoli in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast until fork tender, stirring once. About 30 min. Set aside.
- If only using skillet, saute sweet potatoes over medium heat in olive oil, salt, and pepper until fork tender. About 15 min. Set the potatoes aside and saute broccoli next in the same manner, with olive oil, salt, and pepper. About 7 min. Set aside.
- Regardless of if you used the sheet pan or the skillet, using a medium to large skillet, brown the chicken in olive oil, stirring often until it is no longer pink. About 5 minutes.
- Season the chicken with coriander, cumin, chili powder, grinder, and turmeric. Return all the vegetables back to the pan with the chicken, stirring to incorporate. Pour the sauce of choice over the mixture and allow it to cook about five minutes. Dinner is served!
