Make it Easy on Yourself After Thanksgiving (November 29 – December 5)

The week after Thanksgiving is always transition week. Sheet pan suppers are most appropriate. This means that the meal is cooked and served from a sheet pan. First, you need a large sheet pan with an edge of at least 1. Cover the base of the sheet pan with parchment paper. Overnight marinate the chicken pieces in my suggested choice of fig jam mixed with balsamic vinegar; lemon vinaigrette dressing; or Italian vinaigrette dressing. When ready to cook, spray the parchment paper with cooking spray. Place the chicken pieces at least 3” apart. Then, I cover the chicken with a top layer of parchment paper. Bake the chicken at 350⁰F for about 45 minutes until thoroughly cooked. Remove the top cover of parchment. Just prior to serving briefly broil the chicken to brown the crust. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and place for serving. Decorate the chicken pan with sprigs of rosemary and tiny cherry tomatoes. It’s so easy and a family pleaser. © Kelly McBride Loft
