Tonight's dinner brought to you by just one piece of kitchen equipment - One Sheet Pan Paprika Chicken Thighs, Butternut Squash, and Asparagus! With virtually no clean up this simple and tasty dish is a healthy dinner ready in under 30 minutes and it is gluten free, low carb, Whole30, and clean eating friendly.

I am in love with all the one sheet pan recipes popping up. I mean is there anything better than cooking everything on one single sheet pan and not having to worry about cleaning up every dish and pan you own. Cover the baking sheet in foil and clean up is even quicker. Genius. This simple meal comes together in no time and is packed with flavor and good for your ingredients. The boneless skinless chicken thighs stay nice and moist when baked in the oven, the earthy butternut squash is sweet and hearty, and the asparagus brings in some greens. You could also use potatoes, turnips, or celery root - just make sure to cut them small so that they will cook up in 20-25 minutes.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix together the paprika, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper. Rub over the chicken thighs. Toss the butternut squash with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. If you like you can double up the spice mixture and use it on the squash as well.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the chicken thighs on the baking sheet and scatter the butternut squash in one layer. Place in the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes until chicken thighs are just cooked through. Add the asparagus to the sheet pan and cook for 5-7 minutes more until just tender crisp.
