Ingredients

  • 4 chicken thighs

  • salt and pepper

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard

  • 1 1/2 lb butternut squash , uncooked, peeled and cubed into 1 or 2 inch cubes

  • 3 cups Brussels sprouts , halved

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F. Prepare a large rimmed baking sheet (line it with aluminum foil, if you like).

  2. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper on both sides.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk maple syrup and Dijon mustard.

  4. Dip each chicken thigh on both sides into maple-dijon mixture and place on a prepared baking sheet, skin side up, leaving space between all chicken thighs.

  5. Add cubed butternut squash into the same bowl with the remaining maple-dijon mixture, mix to coat, and add butternut squash on the baking sheet around the chicken, in one layer. If you run out of maple-Dijon mixture, whisk a little bit more.

  6. In a separate, medium bowl, combine Brussels sprouts, olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon salt, mix to combine. Then add Brussels sprouts on the baking sheet around the chicken, in one layer.

  7. Roast for 30 or 40 minutes at 450 F, uncovered, until the chicken is cooked through.
