Marmalade Chicken and Roasted Broccoli

My husband loved this one! Using chicken tenders made this quite simple and super quick! The sauce was thick and looked deelish :)I served this with my go to broccoli dish. I normally make a big batch of the broccoli and freeze it in individual servings for future sides.
