This dish screams fall! Roasted pumpkin is a tender and flavorful side to enjoy alongside the chicken. Tangerine zest adds a nice bold flavor to the chicken and works well with the garlic and thyme. All of these flavors come together to form a perfectly balanced cozy meal that is best enjoyed when the crisp fall air starts to set in. Serve the chicken and pumpkin on a bed of rice or your favorite grain for a filling meal.

My sister and I make these tapas for our women’s club brunches. Several times there have been ten or twelve of us in the kitchen getting these out while they’re hot! My husband has also added these to his rotating breakfast repertoire. He enjoys making them as much as the ladies! We sprinkle cheddar and finely chopped green onion on the eggs, for garnish and added flavor, and then serve with fresh fruit compotes.
