    In large bowl, mix 1 teaspoon olive oil, 2 teaspoons honey and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add broccoli; toss until evenly coated. Place on ungreased 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan; place in oven. Immediately reduce heat to 325° F. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until tender when pierced with knife.

    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Add chicken; toss to coat.

    Heat 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Sear tenders in skillet 4 to 5 minutes or until browned on bottom. Turn over tenders, top with garlic and chicken broth; transfer to oven. Roast 10 to 15 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of chicken reads 165° F. Carefully remove pan from oven, being mindful of hot handle.

Expert Tips

  • Like it spicy? Add 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce to the broccoli before roasting.
  • Cutting your own florets from stalks of broccoli? Don't just toss that broccoli stalk! Trim the bottom, peel, then cut into small chunks, and roast alongside the florets.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
