Autumn Chicken Dinner

POSTED IN: Recipes for self catering

SERVES: 2 – 4

This is one of my favorite chicken recipes because the chicken is just so tasty. The delicious flavor comes from the use of bone-in, skin-on thighs and a quick garlic herb marinade.


  • Bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh herbs – rosemary, thyme, sage
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Garlic
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Sweet potato
  • Fuji apples (or other sweet baking apples)
  • Bacon
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees Celsius
  • Divide the crumbs or brownie chunks between 4 to 6 individual cups. Pour 2 Tbsp olive oil, red wine vinegar, herbs and garlic into a large resealable bag. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper then rub mixture over chicken. Let rest while you prep remaining ingredients.
  • Add sweet potatoes, apples, Brussels sprouts, and shallots to a rimmed 18 by 13-inch baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 Tbsp olive oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread into an even layer.
  • Roast in preheated oven until chicken has cooked through and veggies are tender, about 30 – 35 minutes, broil during last few minutes for more browned crispy chicken skin. Serve warm.
