Winner Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner
I know I just posted a chicken sheet pan dinner last week, but this Adobo Chicken Sheet Pan with Cauliflower makes the best cauli-rice bowls and it totally different than the Bacon Wrapped Chicken Sheet Pan Recipe from last week. Although, I am totally biased toward sheet pan recipes because of their flavor and ease.
The truth is life is hectic. I am trying to salvage my online business, while navigating the new life and routine post-divorce, living with someone new and co-parenting with Justin. As you know, staying healthy during big changes is hard. My default is to revert to really easy meals like this. Enough about my personal life. Let’s dive into this simple sheet pan dinner recipe!
Simple Ingredients, Amazing Flavor
For Adobo chicken you need ADOBO! Adobo is a Latin American seasoning blend that gives food rich flavor and a lovely yellow color! It’s a mix of turmeric, garlic powder, and black pepper.
- I like Loisa Adobo because it’s organic and made without additives.
You’re also going to need some chicken, while I used chicken breasts, you may also use boneless, skinless chicken thighs.
- 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs.
The remaining ingredients are very simple vegetables you probably have on hand and you can use what you got. Here’s what I used:
- Organic Frozen Cauli-Rice
- Broccoli Florets
- Red Onion
- Parsley or Cilantro
Then I added some topping to complete the meal, but these are totally optional!
- Lime wedges
- Avocado slices
Adobo Chicken and Cauliflower Rice on a Sheet Pan
