2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
4 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon snipped fresh thyme
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch wedges
1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
Nonstick cooking spray
4 bone-in chicken thighs, skinned
3 tablespoons snipped dried cranberries
3 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
Preheat oven to 425°F. In a small bowl combine maple syrup, 1 tsp. of the oil, the thyme, ¼ tsp. of the salt, and ¼ tsp. of the pepper. In a large bowl combine sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tbsp. oil and sprinkle with the remaining ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper; toss to coat.
Line a 15x10-inch baking pan with foil. Heat the prepared pan in oven 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven and coat with cooking spray. Arrange chicken, meaty sides down, in center of pan. Arrange vegetables around chicken. Roast 15 minutes.
Turn chicken and vegetables; brush with maple syrup mixture. Roast 15 minutes more or until chicken is done (at least 175°F) and potatoes are tender. Serve topped with pecans and cranberries.
If not everyone is on a diet , you will want to increase the recipe by about half, including the maple syrup glaze. One serving is enough for someone on a diet, but not enough for someone who is active and at the proper weight.
