This is the easiest chicken recipe with loads of flavors! It creates it own juice (or broth) so it won't be dry. You can spice it to your tastes and add any vegetables you like. It's great with rosemary roasted potatoes or saffron rice on the side.

  • Place chicken pieces in the pan. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of rosemary, cayenne, salt, and pepper over chicken. Add yellow squash, zucchini, onion, and grape tomatoes; mix and spread evenly. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons of rosemary, minced garlic, garlic salt, and parsley on top. Cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, stirring halfway through, until chicken is tender, about 45 minutes.

  • Increase oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Uncover baking pan; baste chicken with accumulated juices. Bake, uncovered, until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 15 minutes more.

This is a good recipe but it needs some tweaking. I used 3 leg quarters since the recipe did not specify and I didn't feel like cutting apart a whole chicken. I ended up using 2 squash and 2 zucchini's since their size was not specified in the recipe and my 13x9 pan was getting full. I did cut the rosemary down to 2 tablespoons and it was plenty. I used the full amount of cayenne but in the future I would cut this in at least half. We like spicy in our house but it was a bit much for some I would adjust this based on your personal taste. Finally I would adjust the cooking temperature. As written it took over 1.5 hours for my chicken to cook After 1 hour I removed the veggies and cooked the chicken separately until it was done. I would raise the temp to 375/400 instead. Read More

I played around with adding additional veggies (carrots asparagus and cremini mushrooms) as suggested could be done by the recipe submitter otherwise no changes. This is missing something for me. I think perhaps some lemon juice to brighten it up might help. The chicken was moist but the flavor of the seasoning didn't carry through for me. Read More

This is a good basic recipe. I do like this method of preparing meals because you make the whole meal in one pan and clean up is a breeze. That being said I think veggies like broccoli carrots cauliflower and potatoes are best suited with this method of roasting. I added more spices like basil & oregano to the mix with the rosemary. Good basic recipe to adapt to your own tastes. Read More
