CAN I PREPARE PINEAPPLE SHEET PAN CHICKEN AHEAD OF TIME

Yes, you can prepare this sheet pan chicken dish ahead of time. I like to make up the sauce portion and set it aside in a small container in the fridge. Pre-chop my vegetables, put them in a container, and refrigerate. And pre-cut the chicken, add it to a Ziploc bag, and refrigerate.
