Sheet-Pan Scallion Chicken With Bok Choy

Sheet-Pan Scallion Chicken With Bok Choy

This weeknight sheet-pan chicken dinner makes exciting use of refrigerator staples. A fun mash-up of mustard, miso, scallions, garlic and ginger creates a zesty coating for skinless chicken thighs. The flavors soak into the chicken as it roasts, and the thighs are left on the bone to keep the meat juicy. The chicken cooks atop a bed of fresh bok choy, which picks up the rich aromatics of the pan juices, but broccoli florets also work well here. Turn leftovers into chicken salad sandwiches for lunch the next day: Simply pick the meat off the bones, chop the bok choy and mix it with some olive oil, lemon juice and chopped celery or fresh herbs.

    On a rimmed baking sheet, toss bok choy with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and season with salt and pepper, then spread in an even layer. Season chicken with salt and pepper, arrange on top of bok choy and rub chicken all over with the scallion-mustard marinade.
