Roasting radishes helps mellow out their spiciness. We reduce food waste by using their tops, too—they add color and a slightly bitter bite. If your radishes come without tops, sub in another dark leafy green, such as chopped kale.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°F.

  • Brush both sides of chicken with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with garlic powder, onion powder and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Toss radishes and onion with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Arrange the chicken and vegetables in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Roast for 20 minutes. Add radish greens and continue roasting until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of a thigh without touching bone registers 165°F, about 10 minutes more.

  • Meanwhile, whisk crème fraîche, mustard, lemon zest, lemon juice and chives in a small bowl. Serve the chicken and vegetables with the sauce.
