THIS sheet pan meal, you guys! It was one of those that as I put it in the oven I was thinking, well darn, I really hope this isn’t a fail…but, boy was I wrong! It is a total winner winner chicken dinner! Like, really freaking good. My husband ooh-ed and ahh-ed over it the entire time he ate it. I have a feeling its going to be a new go-to!
The best part about it? It’s so easy my 4 year old could make it. Well, maybe not the chopping the veggies with a sharp knife part…but other than that, it’s as easy as can be. I love the warm flavors of curry and cumin, along with the oh-so tasty kick from the harissa.
Speaking of Harissa, you all have probably seen me use Mina Harissa in many of my dishes before. It is definitely a condiment that is always in my fridge, ready to elevate any dish I please. I keep it simple and add it on top of grilled protein or fish OR I sometimes get a little festive with it and add it to sauces like my Bang Bang Sauce that I made in my Bang Bang Shrimp Lettuce Wraps. And, like I did here with fantastic sheet pan meal. It adds so much flavor and I especially love that it only has 6 simple, clean ingredients. No added junk. Just like I like my food!
So go, get yourself some Mina Harissa and make this sheet pan meal asap. Trust me on this one.
