One Pot Wonders with an oven-baked, sheet pan twist. This Cashew Chicken takes about 15 minutes to bake and will become a favorite new weeknight dinner.
We all love a good One Pot Wonder, right? It’s a favorite category on many a Pinterest board, and we have quite a few variations on that theme ourselves. One of my latest cookbook acquisitions is a whole new spin on the concept: the ingenious Sheet Pan Suppers, which is the brainchild of Dunk & Crumble’s Molly Gilbert. I’ve already made several recipes, have enjoyed every one, and have at least 7 or 8 others dog-eared for the near future.
My favorite so far, not just for flavor but speed and simplicity, is the Quick Chicken and Baby Broccoli with Spicy Peanut Sauce. I adapted it here to be paleo, and I think the cashew butter works perfectly. If you omit the coconut palm sugar it’s also low-carb. See what you think! You might consider doubling the sauce to have extra on hand for an encore performance later in the week.

- ¼ cup cashew butter
- ¼ cup coconut aminos
- juice and zest of 1 large lime (about 2 tablespoons liquid)
- 1 tablespoon coconut vinegar
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon sriracha (plus more to taste and for serving, because yum, sriracha)
- 1½ lbs chicken breasts, thinly sliced
- 1 bunch broccoli, florets halved
- Whisk together the cashew butter, coconut aminos (or tamari), lime juice and zest, coconut vinegar (or rice vinegar), sesame oil, and sriracha.
- Preheat the oven to broil on high while you prep the chicken and broccoli. Slice the chicken thinly. Break the broccoli into florets with a bit of stem attached, and cut the larger florets in half.
- Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Toss the broccoli and chicken in the sauce and then spread out over the sheet pan in a single layer. It'll be tight, but it should fit just fine.
- Broil for 12-15 minutes, turning chicken once halfway through. The broccoli will be well done, with the chicken cooked through and the sauce hot and sticky.
- Serve with extra lime slices and sriracha.
