Equipment

Ingredients

Chicken & Veggies

  • 2 lbs chicken thighs bone-in or boneless is fine, I used bone-in
  • 2 delicata squash
  • 1 lb Brussel sprouts
  • 1/2 tbsp avocado oil
  • salt & pepper

Maple Balsamic Glaze

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F and line two baking sheets with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  • Wash delicata squash. Cut them lengthways and remove the seeds, then cut them into half-moon pieces as shown in the photos. Wash Brussel sprouts and cut them into quarters or halves depending on their size. If they are bigger than a quarter, cut them into quarters.
  • Toss the veggies with 1/2 tbsp of oil. Place veggies on one of the baking sheets. Place it on the top rack of the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • On the second baking sheet, add chicken thighs and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Place the baking sheet on the bottom half of the oven and bake for 25-35 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165F. Once it reaches temp, broil for 3-5 minutes to create a nice crispy layer. (Make sure to do this after the veggies have been removed from the oven so they don't burn.)
  • While the veggies and chicken are baking, combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk them well. Then add to a small non-stick skillet stirring frequently. The mixture will be done in 3-5 minutes once it thickens. It's very quick so stand right there and make sure it doesn't burn!
  • Pour half the glaze over the veggies and toss to combine. Use the rest of the glaze to brush over the tops of the chicken thighs.
