Maple-Roasted Chicken with Vegetables

I love this recipe because it is easy and tasty! I received this one (believe it or not) from my local grocery store. They mailed some coupons to me and sent several recipes and this was one of the recipes included. So make sure you never throw those recipes away! Some are great! This one has a lot of orange veggies and your kids will love it because of the drumsticks, sweet potatoes and carrots “taste kinda like candy” (per my kiddos). This one is gluten free, dairy free and really good for you!
  • 1 ½ lbs. chicken thighs and drumsticks (make sure to get the boneless/skinless thighs)
  • Poultry seasoning to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ red onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ¾ cup maple syrup (I use organic)
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh thyme, chopped
Arrange the chicken in a 9X13 in Pyrex dish. Sprinkle chicken with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Place the carrots, sweet potatoes and onion in the dish. Drizzle with maple syrup and olive oil. Sprinkle with thyme to coat.

Cover with foil and bake at 375F for 45 min. Remove the foil, stir and cook for another 15 min longer or until the chicken is golden brown and a meat thermometer registers 165F.  Let stand, covered with foil, for 5 to 8 min before serving. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Serves 4
