Chicken and vegetables get a smoky makeover in this sheet pan dinner for four. These particular vegetables absorb the smoked paprika nicely and are a perfect complement to the bacon-wrapped chicken.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Combine broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage in a large bowl. Whisk olive oil, salt, and paprika together in a measuring cup and pour over vegetables. Gently stir until all of the vegetables are coated. Set aside.

  • Combine chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder on a flat plate. Roll each chicken thigh in the spice mixture so that both sides are coated. Wrap 2 pieces of bacon around each thigh and place chicken in the center of the baking sheet.

  • Stir vegetables one last time and scatter them around the chicken in an even layer.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bacon is crispy and chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 35 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Maybe I did something wrong. My vegetables were burned and the chicken was not quite done. I had to pull the chicken out and cook it longer. It was not a hit with the household judges.: ( Read More

I made the chicken first and put it in the oven before I chopped the vegetables and coated them. Then added them to the partially cooked chicken. This helped with less charring of the vegetables. I found the meat thermometer was needed as too hard to judge cooking chicken with bacon and all the lovely juices. Was a delicious meal great with a little sour cream. Read More

I make and review a ton of recipes, and I save my 5 star ratings for the very best. This one is right up there because it requires ZERO changes! The seasonings are perfect as is and the cook time is spot on. I used medium to large size thighs and everything was perfectly cooked after 35 minutes. I'm a little confused how some are having issues??? If you cut the veggies the proper size, use the right size pan (not too big, not too small) and follow the directions exactly, this makes an amazing dinner! I loved the smoky flavors from the bacon and paprika. I'm glad I have leftovers for a few more meals! Read More

Loved it! Only wrapped one thick slice of bacon, used just one large head of broccoli, cooked veggies half the time and cooked it at 425 degrees. A huge hit with my family!!! Read More

A true winner on this one. I made this with a bag of mixed vegetable instead of just the broccoli and cabbage. My wife does not eat a much bacon but tried this as is and loved it. Will be making this again but will likely make one of the chicken thighs without bacon for her. As for me, this is a A+ dish in my book. Read More

I ve never criticized a recipe before not everyone has the same taste. But....This was really bad. Even tho I cut the chilli powder amount in half it was still overpowering. This one needs a lot of work. Read More

Did exactly what rox did, minus the bacon because I didn't add it. Rox suggested to put the veggies after half the time has past, and the veggies came out just perfect. Good thing I didn't put it in for all 40 minutes. I had to cook the chicken about 10 minutes more because it looked like it was undercooked, but it could also be the chicken thighs were thick. I think next time I'm going to use less olive oil. Over all it was very good and filling, but it was also pretty oily. That's personal preference though. Read More
