Instead of opening a jar of sauce, try this easy spaghetti with meat sauce on a weeknight. 

 

MAKES 4 SERVING/ TOTAL TIME 40 MINUTES

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 1/2 pounds), skin

METHOD

STEP 1

Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450 degrees F. Combine Brussels sprouts, shallots and lemon with 2 tablespoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper on a large rimmed baking sheet.

STEP 2

Mash garlic and the remaining 1/2 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 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Rub the paste all over chicken. Nestle the chicken into the Brussels sprouts.

STEP 3

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.
