How to make One Pan Chicken and Vegetables:
First thing you’ll want to do is melt that butter in your favorite sauté pan. Add the seasonings and garlic and let them simmer for about a minute. While that’s happening, salt and pepper both sides of your chicken.
Add the chicken to the pan and allow it to cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side.
While the chicken is cooking I usually get the lemon-honey sauce ready. It’s so easy to make. Just mix the lemon juice, honey and soy sauce in a small bowl and set it aside for a minute.
Make room for your vegetables in the pan and add them right in with your chicken. Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper if you prefer. Now add your lemon honey sauce.
Cover your pan and let everything cook for another 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender. I like to serve this meal with a little side of rice.
