Sheet pan meals have become one of my favorite things. Have you guys tried them? They make a healthy dinner so much easier, and way less mess. This one has a great mix of spices (turmeric, coriander, ginger, and cinnamon), roasted veggies and chicken. You can serve with cooked brown rice, chopped cilantro and lemon wedges for garnish and make it extra delicious.
Here’s the recipe. I hope you’ll try it this week!
~1 tsp each turmeric, cumin, ground coriander, salt,
~1/2 tsp each cinnamon, ginger, cayenne, black pepper
