In this healthy chicken recipe, paprika-rubbed chicken thighs are nestled into Brussels sprouts and shallots and roasted on a sheet pan in the oven for an easy, healthy dinner. As the chicken thighs roast, the garlicky drippings flavor the Brussels sprouts and shallots. Delicious one-pan cooking! Smoked paprika adds a touch of smoky flavor--look for it at well-stocked supermarkets or in the bulk-spice section at natural-foods markets. Regular paprika can be used in its place, but doesn't add the hint of smoke.

  • Combine Brussels sprouts, shallots and lemon with 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper on a large rimmed baking sheet.

  • Mash garlic and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt with the side of a chef's knife until it becomes a paste. Combine the garlic paste with paprika, thyme and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Rub the paste all over chicken. Nestle the chicken into the Brussels sprouts.

  • Roast on the lower rack until the Brussels sprouts are tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken without touching bone registers 165 degrees F, 20 to 25 minutes.

Tips

Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

Crispy and delicious in every way If you like Brussels sprouts or even if you don't this is the dish to try. Save a little of the paprika spread and use it on the Brussels spouts smoky crispy and soft in all the right ways. The out leaves become Kale-chip-esque and sweet and smoky. The chicken thigh turns out golden and juicy. Try it once and bet you will save this recipe for a second try. Pros: Easy to prepare one pan cooking great the next day for lunch too Cons: Only two servings Read More

As a newbie cook with a disdain for overcomplicated recipes this was an unmitigated success. Since I had chicken breasts on hand I just divided those into smaller pieces but the recipe turned out perfectly and was easy to make. A delicious combination of flavors and the Brussels sprouts (admittedly not everyone's cup of tea) soaked in a lot of the juices and flavors from the paprika chicken lemon and garlic resulting in a lovely flavor profile. Served this with some buttery Orzo to round it out and my boyfriend and I gave it rave reviews. As commented by the other reviewer I think this might be more of a 2-3 serving dish if you're serving someone hungry but my only complaint! Read More
