Skip the dinner stress (and mess!) with a family favorite recipe for Sheet Pan Pineapple Chicken and Broccoli.

A single sheet pan and five ingredients is all that separates you from the big ol’ bowl of deliciousness you see above. Seriously. Five simple ingredients.

Sheet pan suppers have been a longtime favorite around here, with Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas and Sheet Pan Chicken Teriyaki taking the stress, prep, and most importantly, the mess out of mealtime.

Foil-lined baking sheet with diced chicken thighs and broccoli florets

With two little ones ruling our house and home, it’s impossible to dedicate more than 30 seconds to clean-up. The solution? Line a big sheet pan with foil, toss a bunch of fresh ingredients on top and pop it into the oven. Done, done and done.

Serve this Sheet Pan Pineapple Chicken and Broccoli (or whatever other veggies you prefer) over rice or noodles for the ultimate takeout-fakeout that bakes up in 20 minutes or less!

Servings 4 servings

Ingredients 

  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup homemade or store-bought teriyaki sauce
  • 1 pound broccoli florets
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup cubed pineapple

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. 
  • Dice the chicken thighs into 1/2-inch cubes then add them to a large bowl. Add the teriyaki sauce and toss to combine. Arrange the chicken thighs in a single layer on one half of the baking sheet.
  • Add the broccoli florets to a bowl then drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to combine then arrange the broccoli florets on the other half of the baking sheet. Sprinkle the pineapple over the chicken. (See Kelly's Note.)
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, tossing as needed, then serve. 

Kelly's Note:

  • The pineapple can be added to the baking sheet along with the chicken and broccoli prior to cooking, or it can be tossed on at the end once the chicken is cooked through.

    1. Absolutely! Cook the recipe through fully then let it cool completely before packaging it in airtight containers in the fridge. Enjoy!

  1. Hi Kelly
    Is the pineapple canned or fresh?

    Is there a sweet and sour chicken from breasts something you have tried?

  2. I am just discovering your delicious looking and easy prep recipes. They sure do look yummy and I will be trying them, maybe one today.

  3. I just made the Chicken Teriyaki, Pineapple and Broccoli dish. It was easy fast and tasted really good. My husband loved it. Easy cleanup too.

    Thanks

  4. Do you use fresh broccoli in this recipe? I’d like to make it tomorrow & only have frozen at the moment.

    1. Hi Debbie! I’ve never tried this recipe using frozen broccoli so I can’t say with certainty what the results will be. Would love to hear your results if you give it a shot!

  5. Just noted this recipe. Great for something quickly, cleanly (no pots n pans) and probably something we all have in our cupboards. I think this will be great for my granddaughter to be able to fix like 1,2,3 and have dinner ready for me when I come home from work :) THANKS!!

  6. I am looking for recipes that are low carb but still delicious and I think this could be a winner! Wondering if I can use chicken breasts? My husband does not like chicken thighs. What would be the cooking time if using chicken breasts?

    1. Hi Lori – I’ve never made this recipe using chicken breasts so unfortunately, I’m not sure what the exact bake time would be. Let me know if you give it a shot!

  7. Wow!! Very unique combination of pineapple and chicken. I love pineapple and if combined with chicken it will surely make this dish more tasty and interesting.
    superb experiment.

  8. 5 stars
    My mother was a pretty lazy cook, so she learned this go-to dish decades ago.☺ Always sooo Delicious !
    Your prep techniques are better, though, so thank you! I’ll be back to your site for more recipes & ideas for sure!

  9. Sheet pan dinners is definitely my new best friend! And with only 5 ingredients? That’s definitely a win-win! And I can already guess from the picture how delicious it had turned out… yumm! I would serve mine on top of noodles!

  10. Bad bad bad idea to add the pineapple at the end — since it was tossed with raw chicken. It needs to be fully cooked.

  11. I’m not seeing the pineapple on the baking sheet…is that tossed in after the chicken/broccoli is cooked?
    Looks yummy :)

    1. Thanks, Linda! I just added a note to the recipe that the pineapple can be added at any time. It works all ways! Enjoy!

  12. Is the pineapple on the sheet pan with the chicken? I can’t tell in the picture and the directions just say to add the thighs to the pan. Can not wait to make this but want to get it right!
