4 servings


  • 1 pound multicolor fingerling potatoes, halved lengthwise

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed

  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 4 large chicken drumsticks (1 1/2-2 lbs. total), skin removed

  • 1 orange

  • 3 tablespoons apricot preserves

  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Place potatoes, green beans and onion on a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Nestle chicken into the vegetables.

  3. Grate 1/2 tsp. zest from orange and squeeze it to get 2 Tbsp. juice. Combine the zest and juice, preserves, soy sauce (or tamari), garlic and the remaining 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Brush the chicken with half of the glaze.

  4. Roast the chicken and vegetables for 15 minutes. Stir the vegetables; turn the chicken and brush with the remaining glaze. Continue roasting until the chicken registers at least 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer and the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes more.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
