Hoisin Sriracha Sheet-Pan Chicken

The convenience and simplicity of this chicken dinner make it extra awesome. Change up the veggies throughout the year—the sticky-spicy-sweet sauce is good on all of them! —Julie Peterson, Crofton, Maryland

      This dish was fantastic. The sauce is tangy and packs a punch. I didn't have sweet potatoes so I used regular potatoes and I didn't have cauliflower so I used Brussel Sprouts. Fantastic!

      This dish was our family's introduction to hoisin sauce. We approached it with caution, but found we loved the flavors of this dish. It is so nice to have the whole meal done at one time so easily! We substituted cubes of regular potatoes for the sweet potatoes, and it came out fine. Will definitely make again!

      This is delicious! I accidentally mixed it all together instead of baking in stages, so I kept it covered in foil the whole time and it came out perfectly. Next time, I'll have some sweet Hawaiian rolls to sop up the sauce. Yummy.

      I love the ease of this dish, and the fact that you can use whatever veggies you have on hand, but my DH and I did not care for the sauce. I used chicken breasts, like some other reviewers, and I thought the recipe was enough sauce for the first night, but the leftovers were dry, so if you're making enough for leftovers I do recommend making 1.5 (or 2) times the amount of sauce. After flipping the chicken I cooked it only 15 extra minutes before checking the temp, and they were already a bit overcooked - and the carrots were not yet done. I will do this again with a different sauce, and I will put the carrots in before the chicken, and check the chicken much earlier (or use an in-oven thermometer.)

      This was a great recipe. Everyone loved the sauce. I doubled it like the other reviewers said.

      Loved this recipe! We used chicken breasts as well and doubled the amount of veggies, and the flavors were amazing. The sweet potatoes we not cooked enough, so next time I would either cut them into smaller pieces or add more cooking time.

      Delicious! DH even ate the cauliflower, which he normally does not like. The only changes I made were to prepare the meal for two and to halve the Sriracha, and we both pronounced it GOOD. In fact, DH suggested that next time I fix a full recipe, so that leftovers will be available. High praise, indeed.If we ever tire of this version I might try cooking the vegetables as directed, then adding fish or seafood for the last few minutes. Can you imagine this dish with the wonderful sauce drizzled over salmon or shrimp? I can!

      This was so yummy! Especially the sweet potatoes. Ended up making a double batch, glad I did. Only thing I'd change is marinating the chicken before hand.
