I combined 3 recipes to create tender juicy chicken with an awesome honey-sriracha glaze. If you've always wanted to cook more stuff with turnips, give this a try. Aside from the delicious sauce, the most important part of this dish is using the high heat of cast iron to brown the chicken and vegetables before finishing in the oven.

  • Pat chicken dry. Combine 1 tablespoon black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, cumin, and 1 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Rub the mixture on the chicken.

  • Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat. Add peanut oil to the hot skillet and watch it carefully; when oil smokes, add chicken, skin-side down. Cook until browned, about 4 minutes each side. Transfer chicken to a plate; reserve drippings in the skillet.

  • Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add honey, sriracha sauce, soy sauce, and lime juice. Add remaining black pepper and salt. Bring sauce to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Return skillet with drippings to medium-high heat. Add potatoes, carrots, onion, turnip, and garlic. Cook and stir until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Add chicken on top of the vegetables, skin-side up. Coat with about a third of the sauce.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Add wine to the skillet and coat chicken with another third of the sauce. Cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the meat near the bone reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C) and vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Coat chicken with remaining sauce before serving.

Cook's Notes:

Any high smoke point oil will work.

Peeling the turnip is up to you.

Really good flavor and the crispy skin makes it. Would like to figure how to get a green veggie in there instead of just root veggies. Read More

I m sorry; but this was an awful cooking experience for me. The sauce boiled down rapidly into a sticky mess that I had a very difficult time getting off my nonstick cookware. The finished chicken was dry and way too spicy for even my husband. Read More

The honey and Sriracha sauce came together surprisingly well my husband loved it. Not too spicy but lots of flavor with some heat to it. I doubled the glaze recipe and didn't even need the wine to cook the root vegetables. Read More

My family loved this dish. Next time I make it I plan on doubling the amount of vegetables as they cooked down quite a bit. I took the advice of others and cut the vegetables pieces small. The vegetables cooked well. I will also serve with a side of rice. A great dinner! Read More

My husband and son didn't care for this dish. I made it exactly as directed. I think it's too peppery. Make sure you cut the veggies in small enough chunks so they cook through. After cooking on the stove to brown the veggies they were in the oven for an additional 40 minutes and still weren't cooked all the way through. I was hoping this would be a hit with the family considering the reviews but it was a flop in our house. Read More

Excellent and easy dish! My husband swears it s the best thing I ve ever cooked. I doubled up the chicken so we have some for lunch tomorrow and I m excited to have it on day two. Something about cooking the chicken in the oven on top of the vegetables makes it all taste so even and perfect. I switched the siracha sauce for a jalepeno hot sauce we like and it still was good. Also replaced the red wine with white which we also liked. Will def make it again! Read More
