This has got to be one of the easiest paleo dinners ever! One baking pan…around 10 minutes to prep…then about 30 to cook. Simple…and so dang good!
Gotta love the easy ones, right? Especially at the end of a long day when you need to pull something healthy and delicious together that doesn’t take a whole lot of work or brainpower.
Well simple doesn’t get much tastier than this!
For this no-fuss one-pan dish, I’d suggest drumsticks. Chicken legs are usually pretty cheap, and the higher fat content will give you a richer flavor than white meat. They cook up quickly too, so that’s a bonus when you’re really hungry. Of course, chicken thighs would be another tasty choice for this dish.
(By the way, this recipe is a really good one for prepping a few meals you can enjoy later in the week. It’s one of those protein and veggie combos that keeps extremely well and is very easy to reheat!)
You’ve got a surprising amount of flavor going on in this one too…thanks in part to the special spice combo that gets sprinkled over everything. And then when you squeeze a lemon over it all at the end, the juice marries all those flavors together perfectly!
Feel free to use whatever veggies you have on hand. If you’re including the asparagus, I’d suggest going with the fatter stalks because they’ll hold up better in the hot oven.
That’s it…really super simple! Try this paleo recipe with whatever cut of chicken you like and your favorite veggies! Let me know how yours turns out! Enjoy!
