'Welcome Fall' Roasted Chicken and Butternut Squash

Rated as 3.36 out of 5 Stars

"Great meal to warm the house and welcome fall with the smells and flavors of the season! Chicken roasts with butternut squash, apple cider, and garlic. Even the kids will love the sweet fall flavor of the chicken and vegetables! Yields 2 large servings. As this dish cools on the table, the liquid and vegetables become wonderfully syrupy!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine squash, red potatoes, carrots, shallots, and garlic in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Pour apple cider over the vegetables and drizzle with olive oil and honey. Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice; stir to coat vegetables. Rub chicken legs with unsalted butter and place atop vegetables. Sprinkle chicken with salt and black pepper. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  3. Place into the preheated oven, turn oven temperature down to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake for 45 minutes. Remove aluminum foil, return to oven, and bake until chicken skin is crisp and brown, about 15 more minutes. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh, not touching bone, should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

This smelled amazing cooking but tasted very bland. After reading other reviews I used less liquid and seasoned the chicken, but it just wasn't enough to fit our tastes.

Very disappointed. Even having read the comments and made adjustments it was rather tasteless and the sauce was runny.

This was ok. The only thing I changed was that I used sweet potatoes instead of carrots. I don't really like cooked carrots. The ligquid did not become syrupy like the description says and I had...

It was a disaster. When I checked it at 45 minutes it was still raw. I ended up cooking it for about 2 hours so of course the veggies were overcooked. I was really disappointed because this woul...

This is a nice comfort food dish that's pretty easy to make. Since previous reviews mentioned the veggies not cooking as fast as the chicken, I cut them into small pieces. I don't use shallots...
