Sweet and Smokey Garlic Chicken with Green Beans and Tomatoes

I don’t know about you guys, but the last thing I want to do after a long day at work is cook an elaborate meal. Not only do I not want to put in that much effort, but I also don’t want to wait that long before I get to eat! Enter sheet pan meals!!! You can throw it all together and while it’s all cooking in the oven, you can get other stuff done (I’ve got shit to do if I want any relaxation time before bed!).

 

This one is super easy and your sides cook with it so it’s a whole meal wrapped up in one! We love spice in our house so we use a little more chipotle powder than norm,  so you can adjust that depending on your taste buds 🙂
