Simple Honey Garlic Marinade
The easy marinade is just olive oil, honey, minced garlic, soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Whisk it all together and you’re good to go! It really adds a nice flavor! The chicken doesn’t taste plain or dry at all, but the marinade isn’t overpowering either.
(By the way, this is the best whisk I’ve ever used! It’s the simple things.)
Preparing the Chicken
If the chicken pieces you are using are thicker than 1 inch, I recommend pounding them down to be thinner or slicing them. Since this is a one-pan recipe, this will help the chicken to cook at a similar rate as the potatoes and broccoli and it will cook more evenly.
Other options are to use chicken tenderloins or to cube the chicken into 1- or 2-inch pieces and scatter over the top of the potatoes and broccoli.
By the way, you can get away with adding more than 1 pound of chicken to the honey garlic marinade if you need to feed a few more people. I think it might work with up to 2 pounds of chicken. If you need more than that, I would go ahead and double the recipe.
Making It a One-Pan Wonder
I often use a 15-inch jelly roll pan for this one-pan chicken and veggies recipe, but any good-size rimmed baking sheet will do. To prepare the sheet, I either just oil it or line it with foil and lightly mist it with a cooking spray.
By the way, doesn’t this dish look amazing for something so simple? With the chicken atop the potatoes and broccoli, covered in the honey garlic marinade, it’s almost like a little homemade buffet. Love it!
I love simple, healthy, and family-friendly recipes, like this one pan honey garlic chicken and veggies recipe! I especially love how easy the clean up is! You can simply set the pan out for dinner, have your family load up their plates, and there’s barely anything to clean up afterward.
I hope you give this recipe a try and love it too. Be sure to come back and let us know how it goes for you!

One Pan Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies
- 4 tablespoons + 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 pound chicken breast or tenderloins
- 4 medium red potatoes
- 2 cups chopped fresh broccoli florets
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or line it with foil and mist with cooking spray.
- In a small bowl, whisk together 4 tablespoons olive oil, honey, garlic, soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Combine the olive oil mixture and chicken in a resealable bag or other container or dish. Coat the chicken well, then let marinate while you prepare the potatoes and broccoli.
- Rinse the potatoes and cut them into 1-inch cubes or pieces. Cut the broccoli florets into bite-size pieces. Place potatoes and broccoli in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Stir around to coat, then return potatoes and broccoli to a single layer.
- Place the chicken in a single layer over the potatoes and broccoli and pour the marinade mixture over all.
- Cook in the preheated oven until the chicken is completely cooked through (internal temperature of 165 degrees F) and potatoes are fork-tender, about 25-30 minutes. Then broil on high for 2-3 minutes, or until chicken is caramelized and veggies are slightly charred, if desired.
