This meal is fantastic. I did substantially change the roasting time of the vegetables. I couldn’t see any way that zucchini could possibly need an hour to roast. I cut the vegetables into fairly large chunks and roasted for 1/2 hour. They were a perfect tender crisp. Everything else I did as the recipe instructed. This is definitely one I’d do again.

Is there any reason why you couldn’t use boneless, skinless chicken thighs for this recipe? Would you adjust the temperature or time at all? Thank you.

Hi Sonya, you could definitely use boneless, skinless thighs for this recipe. I’d reduce the overall cooking time to 45 minutes for the chicken.
