Meet your new favorite chicken dinner. And yes, it’s a winner. Because when it all comes together on two sheet pans in under 30 minutes, we are most definitely winning at dinner. 🙌

I don’t know about you guys, but I just had one heck of a Labor Day weekend. I’m one of those lucky kids that has a birthday on the most glorious long weekend of the year. Thanks, ma. ;) We kicked things off at a brewery on Friday, played pool at a line dancing country bar, and wound up at an impromptu Latin dance party to end the night. On Saturday, we grabbed pizza at my new favorite spot and found ourselves at a whiskey distillery drinking cocktails mixed by one of the coolest bartenders EVER. And on Sunday, I thought I was going to get brunch but instead I wound up at a surprise birthday grill out.

Needless to say, after all of that birthday fun, I’m ready to restore some balance to my body with a normal meal. And by normal I mean a meal that doesn’t include pizza, wine, hot dogs, or chocolate. 😂  It’s time for my responsible, newly 27-year-old self to show up on the scene with this healthy, balanced chicken dinner recipe. TANDOORI chicken dinner. With chickpeas, potatoes, and my new favorite sauce. 😍

Are you ready to meet your new favorite dinner? All we have to do is turn on the oven, prep two baking sheets, season the chicken, chickpeas, and potatoes, and bake everything. Meanwhile, we can let the rice (or quinoa!) cook and mix up the most bomb peanut sauce EVER to drizzle over top. Don’t skip the peanut sauce, trust me. You’re going to be pouring it on everything.

That’s it! Just like that, you have dinner on the table. Or you just meal prepped your lunches for the next 3-5 days. Either way, you are winning at life.

A quick note on the versatility of this recipe. It’s COMPLETELY customizable. Meaning that if you don’t eat chicken, you can substitute tofu, or fish, or even a mixture of veggies!
