Sheet Pan Cashew Chicken

Winner, Winner! Sheet Pan Dinner! Under 30 minutes. Easy cleanup. Rave Reviews from both sides of the table! The recipe is from the Recipe Critic.

For the Sauce
6 tablespoons low sodium-soy sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
3/4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water plus more as needed to thin out sauce

For the chicken and vegetables
2 medium skinless boneless chicken thighs or breasts cut into 1" inch cubes
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups chopped z
1 red bell pepper cut into chunks
1/2 green bell pepper cut into chunks (optional - for extra color)
2/3 cup roasted unsalted cashews

Optional garnishes
Chopped green onions

For the sauce:
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together soy sauce, hoisin sauce, vinegar, honey, sesame oil, ginger, cornstarch and water until combined. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens and bubbles. Remove from heat and set aside.

For the chicken and vegetables
Preheat oven to 400°Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or foil coated with cooking spray and set aside.
Season chicken with salt and black pepper. then drizzle spoonfuls of sauce over the chicken coating well on both sides. Reserve at least half of the sauce for later.
Cook in preheated oven for 8 minutes, then remove the pan.
Arrange the broccoli florets, bell peppers and cashews in a single layer around the chicken. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper and drizzle spoonfuls of the sauce and toss everything to coat. Return to the oven and cook for another 8-12 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.**
Remove pan from oven and drizzle with remaining sauce. I served this over rice and garnish with green onions.
