5

Prepare the layer of vegetables on a large sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle the veggies with a pinch of Kosher salt and black pepper.

6

Transfer chicken thighs to sheet pan, directly on top of veggies. Use the marinade remaining in the shallow dish to redistribute any marinade that may have rubbed off the chicken thighs during the transfer to the sheet pan.

7

Bake for 25 minutes, then remove from the oven. Use a brush to baste the reserved marinade on the chicken pieces and some of the veggies.

8

Bake for another 10 minutes, or until an instant read thermometer inserted into a thick part of a thigh registers 165 degrees.

9

Remove sheet pan from oven and let sit for 5 minutes, as the chicken rests the temperature will carry over and rise to 170 degrees.

10

Use a large spatula to scoop a serving of veggies and chicken, transfer to a plate and garnish with chopped cilantro.

11

Serve with tomato slices, naan bread and chutney.
