Roasting chicken thighs directly on top of the vegetables bastes the scallions and potatoes with delicious drippings in this healthy dinner recipe. Serve with steamed broccoli, sautéed spinach or a mixed green salad.

Super simple and extremely tasty. The herb vinaigrette is totally unnecessary---the flavors from the chicken, potatoes, and green onions are plenty! The chicken basically bastes the potatoes as it cooks, which are in turn delicious. The green onions soften and char and pair wonderfully with the potatoes, too.
