  2. Prep the veg by peeling and cutting into rough chunks.
  3. On a big baking tray or dish, add the chicken, parsnips and carrots. Drizzle with oil and season with the herbs, salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Give everything a good mix and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Carefully remove from the oven and add the squash and onion. Mix everything in the juices and place the thighs on top, skin side up to get crispy.
