I make a lot of chicken dinner recipes for my family and this easy One-Pan Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies is one of our favorites.

Honey garlic sauce coats the veggies and chicken and as it bakes the sauce caramelizes into this sticky, sweet, glaze that is absolutely amazing.

Personally, my favorite part is that chicken and vegetables for this One-Pan Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies are baked together on a sheet pan.

That means less dishes for me to wash at the end of the night!

Hi, I’m Melinda from Home. Made. Interest. and I’m back to share with you an easy chicken dinner recipe that will make getting dinner on the table easy, and delicious!

How To Make Honey Garlic Chicken

Let’s talk about the veggie part of this one-pan recipe. Carrots and broccoli are perfect both firm vegetables that can stand up to roasting in a hot oven.

I used baby carrots to go with my honey garlic chicken because they are just a little sweeter.

I sliced them in half lengthwise so they would cook through within the 15 minutes it takes the chicken to bake.

The honey garlic sauce has soy sauce and ginger root in it giving it a bit of Asian flavor so I also added snow peas to the mix.

One-pan chicken dinner recipes should be easy and quick so I like to use chicken tenders rather than chicken breasts or thighs.

Chicken tenders are thin so they cook quickly in the oven and this One-Pan Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies only takes 15 minutes in the oven!

Helpful Tips to make One-Pan Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies:

  • Make your honey garlic sauce ahead of time. The sauce has to be cooked in a saucepan until it thickens up a bit. If you make it ahead of time you can keep it in your refrigerator and just warm it up slightly before adding it to your chicken and veggies. 
  • Line your baking sheet! You can simple grease it if you like but if you line the baking sheet with parchment paper it makes clean-up so much faster!
  • If you don’t want to use chicken tenders you can substitute chicken breasts, just cut your chicken breast into 1-inch thick strips, or cubes, so it cooks more quickly.
  • I used some of my favorite veggies but you can use anything you like. Just remember the firmer the vegetable the longer it takes to cook in the oven so you will want to cut those veggies into thinner pieces so they will cook through in 15 minutes.

What you will need to make One-Pan Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies:

  • Sheet Pan Behind every one-pan meal is a good sheet pan. This the one I use!
  • Parchment paper Line your sheet pan with parchment paper and save yourself some time on clean-up!
  • Zester – This is my favorite tool for grating ginger root.


With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Honey Garlic Sauce

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 4 teaspoons garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cups water, set aside 1/2 cup for cornstarch mixture
  • 3 tablespoon cornstarch


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Place the chicken tenders on a lined baking sheet and place the vegetables around them. Make sure to crowd the vegetables on the pan as they will shrink as they cook.
  • Pour 3/4 – 1 cup of the honey garlic sauce over the sheet pan using tongs to lightly toss the ingredients in the sauce until they are coated.
  • Place the pan in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Once it has finished baking remove the pan from the oven and add a bit more honey garlic sauce to the chicken and vegetables.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds. (optional)
  • Serve immediately.
  • Honey Garlic Sauce
  • In a medium saucepan combine brown sugar, garlic, ginger, onion powder, soy sauce, honey, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Cook over medium high heat until it comes to a boil, whisking constantly.
  • In a small bowl combine cornstarch and the remaining 1/2 cup of water. Whisk them together and then slowly pour the cornstarch mixture into the sauce whisking constantly.
  • Continue to cook for about 10 minutes or until sauce thickens to a point where it will coat the back of a spoon.
  • Remove from heat and use immediately or let cool and then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Donna’s Notes

The amount of vegetables needed will vary depending on the size of your baking sheet. Vegetables shrink as they bake so make sure to pack your veggies onto the sheet pan (in a single layer) to make sure you have enough.

    This is really good. I change it up as you can any recipe, i dont use carrots, just more broccoli and sometimes i dont use meat at all, just broccoli, sugar snap peas, and corn and peppers. So good.

    1. So glad you enjoyed the recipe, David, and thank you for rating the recipe! I love your veggie swaps, especially the sugar snap peas. Yum! 🙂

    1. Hi Jessica,
      We used light soy sauce but you can use dark if you prefer, enjoy and let us know how it goes!
      TSRI Team Member,

    1. Hi Carolyn,
      Sure you can leave out the ginger, it won’t take away from the amazing flavor. Enjoy and let us know how it goes!
      TSRI Team Member,

    1. We aren’t a low carb recipe site Sandy, so I’m unsure of how you would convert this to a low carb recipe. You will certainly need a sugar-free substitute for the honey. I wish I could be more helpful.

    My new hobby is learning to do more of the cooking around here now that I’m retired, and this recipe was a hit – the 3rd “hit” in a row from Slow Roasted Italian! We mixed up a box of rice and served this over that. Fantastic! Thanks for this delicious and relatively easy (even for a beginner) dish!

    1. Hi Ryan,
      We are so happy to hear that, cooking is so much fun! Thank you so much for the star rating!
      TSRI Team Member,

  3. I don’t eat broccoli can I substitute the broccoli with red and green bellpeppers and add diced potatoes?

    1. Hi Carla,
      You can use 1/8 of a teaspoon of ginger powder instead of fresh ginger. Hope this helps!

    Used boneless skinless thighs ilo tenders. Used 1/8 tsp of ginger powder ilo fresh grated. Husband thought it was too sweet and needed some heat next time. Play with it next time. There was plenty of sauce to top off brown rice and extra to top veggies & chicken, too!

  5. This looks and sounds very delicious. I can’t wait to try it tonight. Can frozen chicken or vegetables be used?
    Which shelf in the oven do you put the pan on?
