Paprika Chicken Thighs with Brussels Sprouts

Paprika Chicken Thighs with Brussels Sprouts

In this 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 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.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved (or quartered if large)
  • 4 small shallots, quartered
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika, sweet or hot
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 large or 8 small bone-in chicken thighs (about 2 ½ pounds), skin removed

Instructions

  • Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450°F.
  • Combine Brussels sprouts, shallots and lemon with 2 tablespoons oil and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper on a large rimmed baking sheet.
  • Mash garlic and the remaining ½ teaspoon salt with the side of a chef’s knife to form a paste. Combine the garlic paste with paprika, thyme and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and ¼ 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°F, 20 to 25 minutes.
