  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a glass baking dish with the fat of your choice (I always use olive oil).
  3. Slice the radishes in half. Peel the parsnips. Slice the apple.
  4. Arrange the radishes, parsnips and apple in a circle around the edges of the dish.
  5. Place the chicken thighs in the space you've just created in the dish. Add salt, pepper, cumin, organ and red pepper flakes.
  6. Sprinkle the nutmeg on the apple.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes-1 hour depending on your oven and when the chicken is cooked.
