  • 1.2 kg chicken drumsticks
  • 1 tbsp paprika powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Oven baked vegetables:

  • 8 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 pepper
  • 100 grams of mushrooms
  • 1 small stick of spring onions
  • 1 mini broccoli
  • 1 mini cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme



  1. Heat the oven to 210° top/bottom heat.
  2. Prepare and have all the ingredients for the dish ready.
  3. Peel, wash and quarter the potatoes. Depending on the size of the potatoes, you can cut them in half.
  4. Tip: The potatoes should be roughly the same size so they cook evenly.
  5. Peel the carrots and cut into rings. Wash the spring onions and cut into rings.
  6. Wash the peppers and cut into strips, clean and quarter the mushrooms.
  7. Divide the broccoli and cauliflower into florets.


  1. Place the vegetables in a casserole dish and season with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and thyme. Pour the olive oil over the vegetables and mix everything together.
  2. Tip: You can add broccoli and cauliflower to the casserole dish, or cook them separately like I did and then add them to the casserole dish 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
  3. Place the chicken pieces in a bowl and season with salt, pepper, paprika powder and garlic powder. Mix well.
  4. Scatter the chicken thighs over the vegetables.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  6. Then remove the aluminum foil and cook for another 30 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, blanch the broccoli and cauliflower in salted water. That means cooking for 2-3 minutes. Then drain and rinse with cold water.
  8. Remove the casserole dish from the oven and spread the broccoli and cauliflower in the casserole dish. Bake for another 10-15 minutes.
  9. Tip: The baking time for this dish can vary greatly, depending on which potatoes you use. It takes significantly longer for waxy or predominantly waxy potatoes than for floury potatoes.
  10. Take the casserole dish out of the oven and use a fork to test whether the potatoes are done. If they pierce easily, they’re done.
  11. Tip: If you turn the chicken drumsticks halfway through cooking, they will be crispy on both sides.


  1. Place on a plate to serve and enjoy.
  2. You can also make the dish with whole chicken thighs and use just potatoes, carrots, and onions.
  3. You may have to extend the cooking time a little. The chicken thighs are cooked after 1 hour. Check the potatoes with a fork to see if they are soft.
