Chicken Drumsticks with Jewel Vegetables & Herbed Yogurt

September 18, 2016


Serves: 4

Ingredients

For the sheet pan chicken:

  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 pound butternut squash, peeled
  • 1 pound mixed baby potatoes
  • 3 beets, peeled
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for the chicken
  • 1 lemon, sliced into rounds
  • 4 to 6 sprigs thyme
  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • Black pepper

For the yogurt sauce:

  • 1 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Big pinch kosher salt
  • Few grinds black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425° F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Next, grab a big bowl and cutting board. Chop all the vegetables (onion, butternut squash, potatoes, beets) into 2-inch pieces. Toss the vegetables with the olive oil and salt then evenly layer the mixture across the sheet pan. Top with lemon rounds and thyme sprigs. Place the chicken drumsticks on top of the vegetable mix. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Roast the sheet pan dinner for 45 minutes. If you’d like, turn the broiler on for the last few minutes to brown the chicken skin. While the chicken cooks, mix all the yogurt sauce ingredients together. Serve the drumsticks with a bowl of yogurt sauce for dipping.

This was good & very easy to throw together. Next time, I will reduce the amount of oil, there was just way too much. I lalso would like more roasted flavor/browning on the veggies, so I think I'll start the veggies alone for maybe 20 minutes, then add the chicken & continue roasting for 45 minutes.

2 inches is a pretty large chunk and pretty sure that's not what's shown in the photo. The veg will take forever to cook this large, so cut more like 1".
