In this healthy dinner recipe, chicken thighs, Brussels sprouts, cherry tomatoes and packaged gnocchi are all roasted on the same sheet pan for a complete meal that couldn't be easier to make. And though it's simple, this dish gets tons of flavor from Mediterranean seasonings, including garlic, oregano and red-wine vinegar. It all adds up to a dish that's ready to go into heavy weeknight rotation in your house.

The only change I made was using dry oregano instead of fresh and it was in the oven for 45 minutes and could have gone longer there is no way 20 minutes is enough. The flavor was ok. I put a few capers on mine at the table but my husband thought it was fine as is. Read More

I happened to have all the ingredients including whole wheat gnocchi from Aldi and made the recipe hardly any changes except I used dried oregano which I prefer. This was surprisingly tasty and my husband loved it. I was afraid that it would be too bland but it wasn't though I think the next time I would put a little more oregano and garlic in it. I don't think this is an especially low calorie meal and I picked out most of the gnocchi and left them for my husband. Read More
