Steam-Roasted Sheet Pan Black Pepper Chicken

October 5, 2021
This is an easy sheet pan rendition of take-out black pepper chicken. The Anova Precision Oven’s steam function makes it easy to cook tender and moist chicken and vegetables for this dish. Notes: While I prefer to use flavorful chicken thighs in this recipe, you can use chicken breast if you prefer. For crispier vegetables, wait to add them to the sheet pan until the last five minutes of cooking. You can double the sauce if you’d like extra to serve over rice.
