Ingredients

  • 5 bone in, skin on chicken thighs
  • 1.5 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 1 cup halfed brussel sprouts
  • 1 cup cubed apples

Maple Dijon Sauce

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Spray sheet pan with nonstick spray.

  2. In a small bowl (but large enough for a chicken thigh) mix maple dijon sauce ingredients. 

  3. Fully coat each chicken thigh in bowl. 

  4. Place fully coated chicken thighs on sheet pan. Sprinkle veggies towards the middle, but not on top of the chicken (keeping veggies and apples away from  edges of pan as some of the maple/dijon mixture will darken).

  5. Sprinkle entirety of pan, coating chicken and veggies/apples with salt and pepper.

  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until chicken reaches internal temperature of 165 degrees. If you find your meal getting roasted beyond your liking, add a piece of foil on top. 

Recipe Notes

TIPS FOR THIS MAPLE DIJON CHICKEN WITH ROASTED FALL VEGETABLES:

  1. You CAN use chicken breasts, but the star of this dish is really the bone-in, skin on chicken thighs. They're rustic, and the maple dijon sauce really permeates the skin creating a delicious crust. If you decide to use chicken breasts, cook for 30 minutes on 375, or until 165 degrees internally.
  2. Not a fan of the veggies we used? Mix it up! Sweet potatoes, acorn squash,pears, green beans, broccoli, even  cauliflower would be delicious roasted.
  3. REALLY want to amp up the fall vegetables? Add in a bit of cinnamon to bump up the cozy factor!
  4. Stay away from lining your pan with foil on this one- spray your pan directly with non-stick spray. Foil will get messy and stick too much to the chicken.
  5. Don't have a sheet pan? Use a cast iron pan or a dutch oven with the lid off.
  6. Save some sauce to drizzle on top! Brush it on with a baster brush, or simply spoon some on top.
