Step 1

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line rimmed half-sheet pan with parchment paper.

Place chicken on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and massage well; season with salt and black pepper on all sides. Spread in an even layer and roast until internal temperature is 165°F, about 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare glaze. In a small mixing bowl add jam, zest of half of the lemon, and 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. Remove chicken from oven and brush glaze all over. Heat broiler, then broil chicken for 3 to 5 minutes. Watch carefully as the glaze can burn.

Bring a large pot of water to boil and season liberally with salt. Add broccoli and cook for 3 to 4 minutes; drain. Serve chicken with broccoli and garnish with cilantro.
