Roast chicken with autumn vegetables and rosemary


You'll need

60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil 2 chicken breasts on the bone and 2 chicken legs (about 1kg total) ½ butternut pumpkin 2 Chioggia beetroot (see note) ½ Spanish onion 1/3 cup (loosely packed) oregano ¼ cup (loosely packed) rosemary 2 small red chillies, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, finely chopped To serve: bitter-leaf salad (optional) and lemon wedges

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 250C. Heat a large cast-iron ovenproof frying pan over high heat, add 2 tbsp oil, then season chicken to taste and cook skin-side down until golden (3-4 minutes). Turn, then transfer to oven and roast until almost cooked through (14 minutes).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, dice pumpkin, beetroot and onion and combine in a bowl with remaining oil and remaining ingredients. Season to taste and scatter over chicken, then roast until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through (16 minutes). Serve with a bitter-leaf salad and lemon wedges alongside.

Note Chioggia beetroot are available from select greengrocers and farmers' markets. If they're unavailable, substitute golden beetroot or parsnips.
