  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp tarragon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375º F. Prep the delicata, onion, and grapes. For the delicata, cut it into ⅓ inch slices and scoop out the seeds. A metal, teaspoon-sized measuring spoon makes a great scoop. Set aside. Note that yes, you can eat the skin of delicata squash
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the olive oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, tarragon, salt and pepper. Next, add the produce and the the chicken drumsticks to the bowl and stir to coat everything in the marinade.
  3. Dump the marinated produce and meat onto a large, parchment-lined baking sheet and evenly spread the mixture out over the baking sheet. Bake at 375º F for 35-45 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 170º F and the delicata is fork tender. Serve immediately.
