  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 whole chicken (3 1/2 to 4 pound)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 head radicchio, cored and torn into bite-size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons grainy mustard
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees with rack in upper third. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss squash with 1 tablespoon oil. Rub 1 tablespoon olive oil on chicken.

    I just want to print out this (and other!) recipes, but cannot do so unless I want to print out all 5 pages, complete with color photos. What am I missing here???? In short, I want a one- or two-page recipe that I can print out. Please give us that option!!!!

    Easy, delicious! Great combination of flavors. My squash got a bit charred, but no one complained! Thanks for a quick, lovely dinner.
