This Paleo Whole30 Spanish Chicken is baked on one pan, is super easy and so flavorful! Gluten free, dairy free and a meal the whole family will love.
Chicken thighs are something I cook every weekend to have to eat all week. I usually go with favorites like Lemon Butter Chicken, Pizza Chicken, or Roasted Chicken with Olives and Figs. Sometimes just salt and pepper if I’m feeling extra lazy 🙂 But when I saw this recipe on Pinterest I knew I wanted to make it and it is so so good!
The chicken is flavorful and juicy, the sausage gets a little but crispy, and the potatoes get tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. It’s such a perfect meal with balanced flavors and textures.
I love that it is so easy to make and everything is cooked on one pan so cleanup is super easy. Even the prep is quick- just cutting the baby potatoes in half and slicing the sausage. It comes together so quick and in the oven in no time at all. I like using avocado oil because it is very mild in flavor and has a high smoke point. That means I don’t worry at all that this is cooked at 400°- I know it will produce crispy food without burning it. I like to order mine through Thrive Market because it’s always the best price.
The andouille sausage adds a great bold flavor that is so delicious. My husband went on and on how much he loved that paired with the potatoes and chicken. It definitely is a star ingredient here. I found a Whole30 compliant brand at Whole Foods- just be sure to read the ingredients to make sure there isn’t any added sugar.
You will love this one pan meal! It comes together so fast and even the leftovers are delicious!
