Sheet-Pan Garlic-Soy Chicken & Vegetables


This easy dish comes together quickly and is cooked all on one baking sheet. Putting the pan in the oven while it preheats makes it hot enough to lightly sear the chicken and vegetables, adding texture and flavor and also reducing the cook time. Chicken thighs emerge from the oven succulent and coated in the savory sauce (with less salt because of the low-sodium soy sauce) and fragrant from the garlic, ginger and scallions. We recommend serving this with brown rice or whole-wheat noodles.

  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

  • 3 cloves garlic, grated

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil

  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into 1-inch strips

  • 2 cups sugar snap peas, trimmed

  • 1 medium red or orange bell pepper, cut into 1-inch strips

  • 1 bunch scallions, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil


  1. Place a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven; preheat to 400°F.

  2. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, canola oil, ginger and crushed red pepper in a small skillet; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved.

  3. Place chicken, snap peas, bell pepper and scallions in a large bowl. Add the soy mixture and stir to coat. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and coat with cooking spray. Spread the chicken and vegetable mixture in an even layer on the hot baking sheet. Bake, stirring once, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Drizzle with sesame oil and stir to coat.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
