Everything bagel chicken tenders are roasted with crispy veggies until you have perfectly seasoned, tender chicken and fork-tender veggies. This easy dinner will become a new favorite meal the entire family will love.
It's no secret around here that we LOVE sheet pan meals. I'm really not exaggerating, we usually have 2-3 of them every week. They're easy, healthy and the best of all, a cinch to clean up. Some of our favorites are, maple dijon sausage and veggies, one pan sausage butternut squash and apples, sheet pan sausage and veggies, sheet pan steak fajitas.
I've got an everything bagel chicken salad in my new cookbook, and everyone who's had it loves it so much I thought I'd share another fun way to combine everything bagel seasoning and chicken together in this simple everything bagel chicken recipe.
6 Simple Ingredients
- Petite potatoes: we got the petite gold potatoes from the store, but any variety of small potatoes will work. You will cut them in half, but may need to quarter some of the big ones to make sure each piece is the same size for even cooking.
- Garlic: use fresh garlic to toss with the potatoes. You won't regret it when you start to smell the olive oil and garlic wafting through the oven.
- Broccoli: This adds massive amounts of vitamins and nutrients to this dish like fiber, Vitamin C and potassium.
- Chicken tenders: I opted for chicken tenders because they cook quicker and I like them smaller sometimes compared to a very large chicken breast.
- Everything bagel seasoning blend: I used a store bought version (like the one from Trader Joe's), but you could also make your own seasoning which includes poppy seeds, white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, garlic flakes, onion flakes, and kosher salt.
How to Make Everything Bagel Chicken
- Line a large sheet pan. Slice the potatoes then spread them evenly on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh garlic and salt. Toss gently to coat then roast for 15-18 minutes, until the potatoes start to get slightly brown and crispy.
- Remove the potatoes from the oven and add the broccoli to the sheet pan. Toss the potatoes and broccoli well, then push the veggies to 2/3 of the pan, leaving one side open for the chicken.
- Pat the chicken tenders dry with paper towels then place the chicken tenders in a row on the sheet pan (it's okay if they're touching). Brush them with olive oil on both sides then sprinkle them generously with the everything bagel seasoning.
- Bake for another 15-18 minutes, until the potatoes are crispy and the chicken is cooked through (the internal temperature of the chicken should read 165°F on in instant read thermometer). Garnish with fresh chopped parsley or green onions..
Substitutions and variations
Chicken tenders: you can use boneless skinless chicken breasts or boneless chicken thighs instead of chicken strips. Just be sure they're about 4 ounces each (you may need to cut them in half lengthwise if they're really large). Reduce the potato cooking time to 8-10 minutes and cook everything, with the chicken, for 20-25 minutes.
Broccoli: instead of broccoli you can use your favorite green veggies like brussels sprouts or asparagus.
Potatoes: opt for a low carb veggie like cauliflower or omit the veggies all together and make this recipe with another favorite low carb side.. You can also use a sweet potato (cut into 1-2 inch pieces).
Tips and FAQs
- Can you use a sheet pan for chicken? Cooking chicken on a sheet pan is one of my favorite ways to prepare it! It roasts perfectly so it's juicy and tender and it's minimal clean up. You can get creative with seasonings and sauces if you use a rimmed baking sheet.
- Use an instant read thermometer: This is the best way to know when you're chicken (and any protein) is done. Place the thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken and when it just reaches 165°F, you know it's done!
- Storage tips: Leftovers (or meal prep) can be stored in an air tight container for up to 4 days. Warm it back up in the microwave or bake at 350°F until warmed through. You can also freeze it for up to 3 months! Just thaw overnight in the fridge and reheat.
