One Pan Roasted Chicken Hindquarters

Roasted Chicken Hindquarters with Garlic, Squash and Tomatoes | 31Daily.com

There’s something special about Roasted Chicken Hindquarters with Garlic, Squash, and Tomatoes in the fall or winter. Perhaps it’s the brilliantly colored roasted squash and vegetables, or the cozy aroma of baking chicken.

I haven’t put my finger on the why yet. I just know it is. Special and delicious that is.

Yet while this roasted chicken recipe looks extra special, it’s really a budget-friendly (markets often price chicken hindquarters well), healthy, one pan, easy cleanup meal.

A simple toss with olive oil and spices, 40 minutes in the oven, and you have a beautiful, delicious company-worthy dinner. Or family worthy, as I like to think.

There's something special about Roasted Chicken Hindquarters with Garlic, Squash, and Tomatoes in the fall or winter. Perhaps it's the brilliantly colored roasted squash and veggies, or the cozy aroma of baking chicken.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken hindquarters with leg and thigh
  • head of garlic halved
  • 1 red onion, thickly sliced
  • medium zucchini, sliced in rounds
  • 1/2 butternut squash, sliced (acorn or pumpkin works well too)
  • 12-15 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, and 1/4 teaspoon thyme. Add the onion, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, and garlic to the bowl; toss to coat. Transfer to a roasting pan or sheet pan coated with cooking spray. 
  2. In a small bowl mix the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 pepper, 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, 1/4 teaspoon thyme and paprika. Sprinkle the chicken with the paprika spices; arrange over the vegetables. Roast until a thermometer inserted in the chicken reads 170°-175° and vegetables are tender, 35-40 minutes.

    This is so good !!! Everyone needs to try it . I didn’t have butternut or zucchini so I used one whole Kabocha Squash. I also didn’t have individual herbs listed besides paprika so I used about 1 -2 tsp Italian seasoning. Seriously I have the hardest time with chicken quarters and these came out perfect. We have tons of cherry tomatoes this fall so this is perfect ! Thanks for this !

    1. You made my night, Tori! Thanks so much for letting me know. I love this recipe. It’s a go-to often at our house on fall Sundays. Your addition of Kabocha Squash is SO perfect! In fact, you made me hungry — I’m adding that to my grocery list for next week!
