This easy weeknight sheet pan dinner is perfect for busy nights. I love keeping this in my back pocket for weeknight dinners, and using pre-cut veggies here to save time!


  • 1.5 pound chicken thighs
  • 1 pound broccoli florets
  • 4 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 4 Tablespoons oil (avocado oil recommended), divided
  • 1 teaspoon each: sea salt, smoked paprika, black pepper, red pepper flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Combine the seasonings in a small bowl.
  3. Pile the broccoli florets in the middle of a parchment-lined tray. Toss with 2 Tablespoons oil, and about half the seasonings. Spread out on a sheet pan in one even layer.
  4. On another sheet pan, do the same with the butternut squash – pile it up, toss with 1 Tablespoon of oil and most of the remaining seasoning. (I recommend setting aside 1 teaspoon for the chicken.) Spread it out on a sheet pan, making a large space in the middle!
  5. Arrange the chicken in the middle. Drizzle with the remaining oil and sprinkle with remaining seasoning.
  6. Bake both sheet pans for 30 minutes on 400ºF, or until the chicken is cooked through.


Optional: if you have the time, this is delightful served with cooked quinoa or an arugula salad with a tart lemon dressing!
