Sheet Pan Maple Chicken

Sheet Pan Maple Chicken is a deliciously simple yet satisfying meal that cooks is on the table in 30 minutes or less. You honesty can’t ask for more than that.

Sheet pan meals are my absolute favorite. Why? Being able to prep AND cook a meal quickly and with minimal mess is truly one of life’s great pleasures. So I try to find ways to make sheet pan meals happen in some form each week. (Looking for more great sheet pan meals? How about some sheet pan maple chicken + brussels sprouts or sheet pan eggs and brussels sprouts?)

You may notice that sweet potatoes make an appearance in this recipe, and if you read the ingredient list you’ll also see some apples. That would put this meal in the MODERATE camp for salicylates and low for everything else. I’ve been trying to liberalize our diet and see how we do with more foods from the moderate list. So far we seem to be doing fine and that makes everyone happy. 

If you can’t tolerate moderate foods, or if you’re still in the strict elimination phase, omit the sweet potatoes and double up on the white potatoes and sub pear for apple. Everything else can remain the same.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. Grease a 7 x 11 inch pan and set aside.

  2. Combine shortening or butter and brown sugar and mix with a hand mixer on medium speed until fully incorporated. Add flour and baking soda and mix well. Stir in the oats and the water by hand. Press half of batter into the greased pan and set aside the rest.

  3. In another bowl mix together the pears and 1/4 cup sugar. Spread the pears over the first layer of batter in pan. Top with remaining oat batter. Bake for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.

  4. Remove from oven and let cool. Cut into bars and serve.
