Roasted Chicken Thighs with Zucchini and Couscous

Roasting chicken thighs with their skin on helps keep the meat moist, while the pan juices lend lusciousness to the zucchini that roasts alongside.

Ingredients

  • 8 chicken thighs
  • 2 zucchini (about 1 pound total), halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with rack in upper third. Season chicken with salt and pepper; place, skin side down, on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast for 10 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Remove sheet from oven, and turn chicken, skin side up. Scatter zucchini around chicken, and season with salt and pepper; toss with pan juices. Return sheet to oven, and continue to roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh (avoiding bone) registers 165 degrees, 7 to 10 minutes more.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, bring 1 1/4 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan; season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat, and stir in couscous. Cover, and let stand until all the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork. Stir in parsley, vinegar, roasted zucchini, and 2 tablespoons pan juices; season with salt and pepper. Serve chicken with zucchini and couscous.

    Kind of boring... Not very impressed with this at all. The different ingredients never really mixed flavor-wise: you just tasted them individually. The chicken was the best part (but still boring). Won't make it again.

    This dish was just OK, I found that the chicken was pretty bland with just salt

    I recently planned the menu for a group of 65 women. I chose this meal for our banquet, and it was very well received! Several women asked for the recipe, and were surprised to learn it was only five ingredients! Thanks, Everyday Food, for making me look so good!!

    Great easy recipe. Very tasty. I did, however, use chicken broth instead of water in the couscous, and my chicken thighs must have been large because it took them an additional 10 minutes to reach 165 degrees. I will make this again!
