1. Smoky Sheet Pan Roasted Chicken Breasts with Tomatoes and Chickpeas


This recipe from TasteFood is bound to win a regular spot at your dinner table.



  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 4 large chicken breasts with skin, de-boned (6 to 8 oz. each)
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro sprigs, divided



Preheat your oven to 450° Fahrenheit. Mix the oil, garlic, paprikas, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper in a small bowl. In another bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of the oil and seasoning mixture with the Greek yogurt. Set this sauce aside for later.


Place the chicken skin-side up on your baking sheet and rub it with 2 tablespoons oil mixture. In another bowl, toss the remaining oil mixture with the tomatoes, chickpeas, and half of the cilantro. Pour this mixture over and around the chicken, turning the chicken to coat it with extra oil. Turn the chicken skin side up and sprinkle with salt.


Roast until the chicken is fully cooked, approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Garnish with the remaining cilantro and serve with the yogurt sauce.
