Ingredients

4 chicken thighs and drumsticks
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tbsp. orange marmalade
1 orange
1 lemon
Sea salt
2 green zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and into ¼’’ slices
2 yellow zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and into ¼’’ slices
2 tbsp. chopped parsley

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Next, preheat a cast iron or regular pan over high heat. Prepare a rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside. Rinse chicken and dry thoroughly. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Sear chicken skin side down for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan over medium-high heat, combine orange marmalade, 1 teaspoon orange zest, 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice, 1 teaspoon lemon zest and 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to sheet pan skin side up and brush citrus glaze all over. Roast for 20 minutes. For crispy skin, finish under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle sea salt.

In a mixing bowl toss together zucchini with drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Using the same grill pan cook zucchini in a single layer over medium-high heat, about 4 minutes per side. Serve all together and garnish with fresh parsley.
