This one-pan supper embraces two trends we love: sheet pan cooking (both the main and side cooking together on a single pan), and embracing less-familiar spices (in this case, lemony ground sumac, available at most supermarkets). Sumac is also delicious sprinkled over grilled vegetables or in vinaigrettes. Bone-in chicken thighs and drumsticks will stay moist and become beautifully bronzed in the oven as the vegetables become golden brown and tender. The vibrant parsley mixture brings the entire dish together. Serve with hot cooked whole-wheat couscous, if you like.
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Combine 3 tablespoons oil with sumac, 1 teaspoon salt, brown sugar, paprika, and red pepper in a medium bowl. Place cauliflower and carrots on a foil-lined baking sheet. Add half of oil mixture; toss to coat. Add chicken thighs, drumsticks, and lemon slices to pan. Rub remaining oil mixture over chicken. Bake at 425°F for 20 minutes. Stir vegetables. Sprinkle onion wedges over pan. Bake at 425°F for 20 more minutes or until chicken is done.
Combine remaining 3 tablespoons oil, parsley, and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Spoon parsley mixture evenly over chicken and vegetables.
