Cozy Chicken and Summer Squash Casserole

A one-pan meal, this fresh and flavorful summer squash casserole is perfect for weeknight dinners. Chicken thighs are rubbed with garlic, rosemary, and thyme, and become so juicy as they bake.


  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary + 2 whole sprigs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme + 2 whole sprigs
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 pound carrots, cut into small, 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound zucchini, sliced into 1/4 inch coins
  • 1/2 pound summer squash, sliced into 1/4 inch coins
  • 1 small red onion, cut into wedges


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix together garlic, minced rosemary, minced thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil.

Rub mixture all over chicken thighs and set aside.

Toss carrots, zucchini, summer squash, and red onions with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Scatter in the bottom of a large baking dish.

Tuck the sprigs of rosemary and thyme underneath the vegetables, then place the chicken thighs over the top of vegetables.
