Roasted Brussels sprouts and chicken thighs are a match we go back to over and over again in the Test Kitchen. Paired with cumin, thyme, sweet potatoes and a hit of sherry vinegar, they create one of our favorite easy dinner recipes.

Cooked chicken for an additional 15 min. as it didn’t seem quite fully cooked. No mention in preparation of what to do with sherry vinegar so omitted it. We enjoyed the outcome.
