Cut squash in half lengthwise; scoop out seeds. Cut each half into 6 wedges.

In large bowl, whisk together marmalade, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper; add squash and turn to coat. Place squash on large foil-lined rimmed baking sheet, reserving marmalade mixture. Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, add chicken thighs to remaining marmalade mixture; turn to coat well. Add to baking sheet of squash. Drizzle any remaining marmalade mixture over top.

Roast chicken and squash, basting occasionally, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced and squash is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

Broil chicken and squash until chicken is golden. Sprinkle minced parsley over squash.
