Chicken thighs and butternut squash are coated with the maple-Dijon mixture making them super flavorful, along with the olive oil coated Brussels sprouts. Just put all ingredients in one layer on a rimmed baking sheet:

One-Pan Maple-Dijon Chicken with Winter Veggies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

One-Pan Maple-Dijon Chicken with Winter Veggies


  • 4 chicken thighs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 and 1/2 pounds butternut squash, uncooked, peeled and cubed into 1 or 2 inch cubes
  • 3 cups Brussels sprouts, halved
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 450 F. Prepare a large rimmed baking sheet (line it with aluminum foil, if you like).
  2. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk maple syrup and Dijon mustard.
  4. Dip each chicken thigh on both sides into maple-dijon mixture and place on a prepared baking sheet, skin side up, leaving space between all chicken thighs.
  5. Add cubed butternut squash into the same bowl with the remaining maple-dijon mixture, mix to coat, and add butternut squash on the baking sheet around the chicken, in one layer. If you run out of maple-Dijon mixture, whisk a little bit more.
  6. In a separate, medium bowl, combine Brussels sprouts, olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon salt, mix to combine. Then add Brussels sprouts on the baking sheet around the chicken, in one layer.
  7. Roast for 30 or 40 minutes at 450 F, uncovered, until the chicken is cooked through.

    Oh my goodness Julia! This looks amazing! I will have to try it out this fall!

    I’d like to substitute chicken breasts for thighs. I only cook breasts in the oven for 15-20 min at 400. How can I make sure these veggies get cooked?

    • Julia December 22, 2016, 12:43 pm

      Cook the veggies first in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, then add chicken breasts for the final 20 minutes. I think that should work just fine!

    may I use skinless boneless thighs instead?

    • Julia March 12, 2017, 11:30 pm

      Yes, you can use them, but the cooking time might have to be reduced because skinless boneless chicken cooks faster than bone-in skin-on chicken. So, you might have to watch the chicken closely and remove it from the oven earlier than the recipe indicates, and return the rest of ingredients back to the oven to finish cooking (if they are not done at the same time the skinless boneless chicken is done).

    I am usually not a big fan of brussel sprouts, but I tried this recipe and loved it! I will definitely be making this again.

      Thank you, McKenzie, I am very happy to hear that! 🙂

    Is it possible to use frozen Brussel sprouts?? Opinion?

  • Mike Crawford November 3, 2017, 6:46 pm

    Tried your recipe tonight. I didn’t want to go out to the grocery store so I had to substitute. broccoli for brussel sprouts, potatoes and cauliflower for squash. excellent stuff.
