How to Make Gluten-Free Sheet Pan Chicken

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°. Prepare a large baking sheet by covering it with parchment paper or spraying with non-stick cooking spray.

In a zip-top bag, add chicken breasts and Icelandic yogurt. Close bag, and massage yogurt to coat chicken. Set aside.

Add O Organics® almonds and Open Nature® Parmesan Crisps to a small food processor. Process for 10 seconds, until the mixture, is in fine crumbles. Pour crumbles onto a plate. Remove each chicken breast, and coat well with the almond mixture on all sides. Place each chicken breast in the center of the baking sheet. Place in the oven for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss vegetables, olive oil, and salt in a medium bowl until well-coated.

Remove chicken, sprinkle vegetables all around so they are in a single layer. Place back into the oven for another 30 minutes.

To make the sauce, add all ingredients into a small food processor and blend. Add water a tablespoon at a time to thin out to desired consistency.

Serve Almond Crusted Chicken with Vegetables and sauce. Enjoy!

Use whatever combination of 3 vegetables you have on hand. Sweet onions, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, diced red potatoes, etc.

For a faster sauce that doesn’t involve a processor, use 1 cup pre-made pesto sauce with 1 cup Open Nature® Icelandic Yogurt and whisk.
