  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F and line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the chopped carrots, sweet potatoes, red onion, apple, and Brussels sprouts. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with chopped rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat the vegetables evenly.
  3. Arrange the seasoned vegetables on the sheet pan and roast for about 20 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, olive oil, minced garlic, dried thyme, salt, and pepper.
  5. Place the chicken thighs in a bowl and generously coat them with the maple and apple cider glaze. Allow to rest for 15-20 minutes while the vegetables cook.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven, toss the vegetables, and make space for the chicken thighs.
  7. Place the chicken thighs on the sheet pan, ensuring they have some extra glaze on them. Continue to roast for another 20-25 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked to an internal temp of 165o and caramelized.
  8. Optionally, set the oven to broil for the last 5 minutes to help caramelize the chicken.
  9. Once done, remove the sheet pan from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.
  10. Serve the Maple and Apple Cider Glazed Chicken Thighs with the roasted root vegetables and Brussels sprouts directly from the sheet pan. You can garnish with fresh herbs, such as parsley or thyme, if desired.
