Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Season chicken with ½ tsp (2 mL) salt and ¼ tsp (1 mL) pepper. Add ¼ cup (60 mL) olive oil to large saucepan set over medium-high heat; sear chicken, turning once, for 2 to 3 minutes or until browned on all sides. Remove from pan; set aside.

  2. In small bowl, whisk together remaining olive oil, maple syrup, mustard, thyme, rosemary, lemon zest, and remaining salt and pepper. Add potatoes, Brussels sprouts, carrots and onion; toss to coat. Spread vegetables evenly on parchment paper­–lined baking sheet. Arrange chicken on vegetables.

  3. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes or until vegetables are tender and internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) on instant-read thermometer when inserted into thickest part of chicken.
