From Real Simple
1 3 1/2- to 4-pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces
1 yellow onion, cut into 1-inch wedges
2 small sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons maple syrup
6 sprigs fresh thyme
Heat oven to 400° F.
Rinse the chicken and pat it dry. Arrange the chicken, onion, and sweet potatoes in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Drizzle the oil over the chicken and vegetables and season with the salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Drizzle with the maple syrup and top with the sprigs of thyme.
Roast, stirring the vegetables once, until the chicken is cooked through, about 1 hour, 15 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
I made this with chicken breasts cut in 1/2. I also substituted sugar free syrup & dried thyme. The chicken ended up a little tough on the outside, but still tender enough to cut with a fork. Since it is so similar to the Easy Chicken recipe, I think I may try it in an oven bag next time. Regardless, it was really good :)
