    Default veg and chicken in the same oven

    I want to do a simple chicken thing for a few people.

    I thought i would buy chicken legs or thighs, put them in a roasting tray,
    and then put some chopped vegetables in a casserole dish (with lid either on
    or off, i dont know which is best); in the same oven if possible.

    Could anyone please advise a novice which *oven setting* might allow me to
    roast the chicken pieces and the vegetables at the same time. Thanks

    Most of the time you'd plan on starting with cover on (to steam) and
    end with cover off (to finish and firm). I really roast vegetables,
    so I do a shallow layer in a rimmed half sheet at high heat until
    cooked to my taste and slightly browned.

    Don't plan on cooking vegetables for the same amount of time as the
    chicken! The best idea would be to start the chicken and add the
    vegetables later. 400 is my friend. I can roast with more or less
    , but it's an old standby. So, start your chicken in the 400 oven
    (or higher, depending on how crispy you want the skin) and when you
    think it's xx minutes from finished, add the vegetables. Do you plan
    on making gravy? If so, you can take the chicken out and put in your
    vegetables then. The vegetables should be finished when your gravy
    is.... but I have no idea which vegetables you're planning on
    roasting, so I'm just guessing.

    That's pretty much what I do. Try 45 minutes at 350F/180C for the
    chicken -- put the vegetables in about 15 minutes earlier. Toss in a
    little olive oil and add some black pepper and coarse salt. Roast the
    vegetables with the lid off, and turn them over about halfway through.

    Serve with a green vegetable or salad on the side, and you've got a
    great meal.

    350, no lid, works fine. Legs and thighs add a lot of moisture, so you
    don't need to add oil or anthing. Just add chunks of potatoes, carrot,
    sliced onions, quartered lemons, garlic cloves, and what really works
    great for this is celery root. Peel and chop in smaller than the
    pototo chunks. This add a great roasting flavor and the celery root
    gets soft and very tasty.
