Hoisin Chicken With Broccoli


This is the kind of dinner that makes you wonder why you ever order takeout. Not only does it come together on just one baking sheet, the ingredient list is short for such a flavorful combination. You’ll make a simple hoisin-tamari sauce to glaze the chicken, and roast some garlicky broccoli alongside. Chop up any leftovers to make fried rice. If you need this meal to be gluten-free, double check the ingredients on the hoisin, which sometimes includes wheat as a sauce-thickener.
