Baked Chicken Thighs with Zucchini, Tomato and Summer Squash

Convection Roast or Convection Bake Mode

Often when I cook a meal in my convection oven for a group of people, I ask myself, what else I can cook while I have in the oven the main dish? Of course I will prepare a side dish and dessert. Why? Because in convection I can cook in multiple rack without transference of flavors.

Planning Tips for Cooking this Meal in Convection


Cooking Time Chicken Pieces - 25 - 35 minutes depending on the size

Resting Time for Chicken - 5  minutes

Cooking Time for Vegetables - 20 - 25 minutes

Cooking Time for Crisp - 35 - 40 minutes


Organize the oven racks, one on rack 2 (counting up from the bottom) the other on rack 4.

Preheat the oven in the Convection Roast or Convection Bake Mode  to 425 degrees.


  • The chicken goes into the oven on the upper rack and the vegetables on the lower rack, set the timer for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 375.


  • Slide the crisp in next to either the vegetables or the chicken and set the timer for 15 minutes.
