Roast Chicken & Vegetables

This a great recipe for feeding a crowd-everything is baked in one dish. Makes the house smell wonderful as it cooks.

6 whole chicken/thigh quarters
3 medium potatoes
1 large red onion
1 red bell pepper
2 small zucchini
6 whole garlic cloves, peeled
fresh thyme sprigs
¼ cup olive oil

Cut the potatoes, onions, bell pepper and zucchini into 1 inch pieces. Place in a large 9×12 baking dish along with the whole garlic cloves. Season well with salt & pepper, drizzle with the olive oil and toss well to coat everything with the oil. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 45 minutes turning the vegetables after 30 minutes.

While vegetables are roasting wash & dry the chicken quarters and season with salt & pepper. Brown both sides well and place over the vegetables along with the sprigs of thyme. Return to the oven and roast for an additional 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees or until chicken is golden brown and cooked through.

Serves 4-6
