Burnished Chicken Thighs with Roasted Root Vegetables

Burnished Chicken

Aaaaand, meet the newest member of our family.

Seriously, this meal has become a Regular with a capital R around here lately. I first tried it this fall, when we were swimming in parsnips from our CSA. There is an amazing collection of recipes divided by vegetable on the Uproot Farm site, and I was trying to figure out what to do with all the parsnips when I saw it.

Marinate chicken with five ingredients.
Place said chicken on a pan with some chopped up root vegetables.
Roast.
Eat.

Warm Cabbage Salad with Bacon, Bleu Cheese, & Apple
