One Pan Autumn Chicken Dinner

Ingredients

  • 5 (6 – 7 oz) bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbsp)
  • 1 Tbsp each minced fresh thyme, sage, and rosemary
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large sweet potato (about 16 oz) (I leave unpeeled), chopped into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts, sliced into halves
  • 2 medium fuji apples, cored and sliced into half-moons about 3/4-inch thick
  • 2 shallot bulbs, peeled and sliced about 1/4-inch thick
  • 4 slices hickory smoked bacon, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 Tbsp chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Pour 2 Tbsp olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic and herbs into a gallon-size resealable bag.
  • Add chicken, season with salt and pepper then seal bag and massage mixture over chicken while working to evenly distribute herbs. Set aside and let rest while chopping veggies.
  • Place sweet potato, Brussels sprouts, apples and shallot on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Drizzle with remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil then toss to evenly coat, season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread into an even layer.
  • Set chicken thighs over the veggie/apple layer.
  • Sprinkle bacon over veggie apple mixture.
  • Roast in the preheated oven until chicken and veggies are golden brown, about 30 – 35 minutes (chicken should register 165 in the center). Broil during the last few minutes for a more golden brown crispy skin on chicken if desired.
