Honey dijon chicken one pan bake

How many of you have gotten sucked into watching the step by step recipe videos on social media? Don't they make everything look so easy and amazing. Well one caught my eye that looked do-able and like something my husband would like. It was a honey dijon chicken recipe that was a one pan wonder with veggies roasting alongside the chicken. Here's the video:

Unfortunately this was a bit of a fail but I thought it would still be fun to share! I also think it had potential and maybe with a few tweaks it could be a winner in the future. Some things that went wrong? The potatoes weren't cooked all the way through and the broccoli got a little crispy. So I'd recommend a small dice on the potatoes and then adding the broccoli half way through the cooking time. And maybe even putting it on a separate pan (I think it was also overcrowded for this preparation). I would also double the marinade so there's more of its deliciousness for all the vegetables. This was still a fun experiment!

Honey Dijon Chicken from Tip Hero
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
½ tsp salt plus more to taste
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper, to taste
16 oz baby red potatoes, halved
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 5-6 oz each
   pounded to even thickness if necessary so that they cook evenly
20 oz broccoli florets

   Whisk together 1 Tbsp of the olive oil with the honey, Dijon, garlic, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper.
   Reserve half of the sauce for later, then marinate the chicken in the rest of the sauce for an hour.
   Preheat the oven to 400F.
   Toss the potatoes with the second Tbsp of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Place them on a foil-lined half sheet pan and lay the chicken breasts on top. Add the broccoli to the pan, then drizzle the reserved sauce over top.
   Bake 35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are tender. If you prefer your broccoli to still have some crispness to it, don’t add the broccoli to the pan until 15 minutes into the cooking time.

Have you made one of those social media video recipes??
