Children and adults alike enjoy this supereasy, sweet and tangy chicken that’s seasoned with agave, a natural low-glycemic sweetener. These ingredients are economical, but for even more savings, use bone-in chicken, remove the skin, and increase cooking time by 15-20 minutes. Brown rice makes a good side dish.

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚;. Spray or lightly oil a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Using a skillet or mallet, pound chicken breasts to 1/4 inch thick. (If using bone-in chicken, skip this step.) Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil and sauté chicken, turning until lightly brown (1–2 minutes per side). Place into baking dish. Deglaze pan with broth, scraping up any brown bits.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together mustard and agave. Add pan juices and mix well. Pour sauce over chicken. Arrange broccoli florets, onion, and bell pepper (if using) around and on top of chicken. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
