If using sirloin steak, in Step 1, bake vegetables uncovered, 15 minutes. Follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 2 and 3, baking uncovered until steak reaches a minimum internal temperature, 12-16 minutes.
If using pork chops, in Step 1, bake vegetables uncovered, 10 minutes. Follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 2, and 3, baking uncovered until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature, 15-20 minutes.
Prepare the Ingredients
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.
Combine corn, zucchini, and seasoning blend in provided tray. Push to one side and top with butter.
Add the Chicken
Pat chicken dry and place in empty side of tray. Top with a pinch of salt, mayonnaise, crispy jalapeños (use less if spice-averse), and cheese.
Finish the Dish
Bake uncovered in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 30-35 minutes.
If cheese browns too fast, cover with foil.
Carefully remove from oven. Rest chicken, at least 5 minutes. Bon appétit!
