Home Dinner Easy Sheet Pan Cashew Chicken

Easy Sheet Pan Cashew Chicken


A takeout favorite made super easy at home in 30 minutes with only ONE PAN!  Tender, juicy chicken paired with broccoli and red peppers in an amazing flavor packed Asian style sauce.

Ok, I’m a little bit obsessed with this cashew chicken right now.

Mostly I’m obsessed with the sauce, I should say.

Next, I’m crazy about the fact that this meal literally produces the least dishes EVER.

One little bowl to mix up the sauce, and one sheet pan.

The easiness kind of blows my mind!


I love cashew chicken but I’m not a big fan of ordering out for Chinese food.

I always find it a little greasy/heavy.

This is much healthier without loads of breading, lighter, not greasy.

AAAANNND, it totally satisfies my cravings – even more so than takeout.

Can we talk about this sauce?  Give me a spoon, leave me alone with the sauce, that’s all I want.

It’s a tad spicy, but not like eyes watering/steam coming out of your ears spicy.

REALLY garlicy.

The sesame oil combined with the garlic is definitely what hits me – it’s addictive and I can’t help myself!

I honestly usually make double the sauce that the recipe calls for, because I like to add more at the end.  No shame.

As you’ve probably figured out from my sauce-raving, I can eat this as is, straight off the pan like I have no manners.

But, it’s equally tasty served over rice to soak the saucy goodness up!

Enjoy your new found fave best friend/30 minute/no fuss dinner!
