INGREDIENTS

  • 1 18 X 12″ (half) sheet pan
  • 1 lb boneless chicken thighs
  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp sea salt (such as maldon, French grey, smoked, etc)
  • 1 tbsp of fresh ground pepper
  • ¾ lb delicata squash
  • 1/2 lb turnips
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves removed from stems OR ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

DIRECTIONS:

-Set your grill to 350 degrees.

-Rinse the veggies before slicing. Using a mandoline slicer, slice the turnips and delicata squash with the largest slice setting – about 1/4″ thick. It is important to use a mandoline so that the veggies are sliced thin and uniform.

-Line a 12″ X 18” sheet pan with parchment or foil (parchment is better for the environment). Arrange the chicken on one side of the pan and place the squash and turnips on the other.

-Sprinkle the chicken with the smoked paprika.

-Sprinkle all ingredients with the salt, pepper and thyme.

-Drizzle the squash with maple syrup.

-Smoke the sheet pan dinner at 350 degrees, for 30 minutes, or until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 170 degrees.

-Serve immediately – easy peasy! The beauty of this recipe is that it combines the simplicity of the “sheet pan dinner” with the great flavor and ease of use of the Green Mountain Grill. If you can make it in your oven, you can easily make it in your pellet smoker!!
