Seriously Simple Sunday Dinner

Though I didn’t get to enjoy this meal the first go round (Jon made it while I was out of town), it was super tasty even as leftovers. Jon says, “It is seriously simple and takes just a few minutes. The flavor combo of the chicken with the sweet onions is superb.” We’ve had the Cauliflower dish before and it got earmarked as a “must have again.”

Paprika Roast Chicken Breast with Sweet Onion

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 3 large chicken breasts (about1 3/4 pounds)
  • 1 sweet onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • Preheat oven to 500°F with rack in upper third.

    Mix oil with spices, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl, then add chicken and onion, tossing to coat. Arrange chicken, skin side up, and onion in a 3-quart shallow baking dish.

    Bake until chicken is just cooked through and skin is golden, about 30 minutes. Skim any fat from pan juices in dish.
