About this recipe:

A sweet and comforting weeknight dinner idea.

Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 2 cups brussels sprouts
  • 6 chicken thighs
  • ¼ cup pecans
How to Check on Your Chicken:

It's generally advised to use a meat thermometer to determine when your chicken is ready. The temperature should be 165° F (74° C) or above.

Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 425° F (218° C). Line a baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.
  2. Finely chop thyme and fresh rosemary. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tsp olive oil, the maple syrup, thyme, fresh rosemary and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Cut sweet potatoes into large wedges. Cut brussels sprouts in half. Combine both in a bowl and toss with 2 tsp olive oil and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange chicken thighs in the center of the baking sheet and drizzle with remaining olive oil. Arrange sweet potato and brussels sprouts around it: roast 15 minutes.
  5. Remove baking sheet from oven and drizzle or brush maple syrup mixture over chicken and vegetables. Return to the oven 15 minutes more, until chicken is cooked through.
  6. Coarsely chop pecans and sprinkle over chicken to serve.
