Chicken with Cauliflower and Apples

Pink Lady apples are a good choice in this recipe because they maintain their shape and texture when cooked. Roasting everything together makes for a simple weeknight meal.

Chicken with Cauliflower and Apples

Source: Everyday Food, October 2010


  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 2 pounds total)
  • 1/2 head green cabbage (about 1/2 pound), cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 1 head cauliflower (2 pounds), cut into medium florets
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 Pink Lady or Cameo apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Place chicken, cabbage, thyme, and half the cauliflower on a rimmed baking sheet and place remaining cauliflower on another sheet. Drizzle each with 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Place sheet with chicken on top rack and cauliflower on bottom. Cook until cauliflower is tender, 20 minutes, stirring twice.

  2. Remove both sheets from oven. Let sheet of cauliflower cool, then transfer cauliflower to an airtight container and reserve for Friday. Add apples to sheet with chicken and remaining cauliflower and return to oven. Cook until chicken is cooked through and apples are tender, about 20 minutes, stirring twice. Serve immediately.

    I really enjoyed this. The flavors were great. I used boneless skinless thighs and the dish was a little pale. Next time I will brown the chicken a bit first and adjust cooking times slightly. I am doing a weight loss plan and this recipe has very little fat and lots of veggies. It was a good fit for me.

    Great recipe...we really enjoyed it. An interesting combination with great taste and easy to make. We will definitely have it again.

    This was so good I could just eat the veggies. I also added sliced fennel. A recipe I have made at least 10 times so far.

    This recipe was delicious and easy to make. I made 6 thighs - the two of us ate 3 in one meal. The cauliflower was so yummy that we ate most of it (including the amount I was supposed to save for a meal later that week.) Next time I'll double the cabbage and cauliflower.
