Roasted Dijon Chicken with Apples and Fall Vegetables

fall chicken and vegetables

I love fall vegetables. And I love easy to make recipes! This is a super easy roasted dijon chicken and fall vegetables recipe that is great for dinner or for meal prep for the week.

This roasted dijon chicken recipe features my favorite vegetables: sweet potatoes, red onion, and Brussel sprouts.  You could easily switch out the vegetables or add your favorites. Butternut squash would also be a great substitution for the sweet potatoes. I love the sweet, tart flavor of the Granny Smith apples with this as well. 

I make this dinner at least once a week because it is a great comfort food dinner, epecially in the fall and winter. I sometimes add pomegranate seeds because my daughter loves them and they add a fun burst of color. This recipe is also gluten free and dairy free.

This recipe is great for meal prep for lunches during the week. I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time eating salads everyday when it’s cold outside. With this recipe, you will still have lots of healthy vegetables and protein ready for lunch. I try to eat vegetables with every meal to help me have energy throughout the day.

A great way to save time is to roast your chicken on top of your vegetables so that you only have to use one sheet pan. You can also line it with aluminum foil for easier clean up. Who doesn’t like to save time?!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb bone-in chicken breast (this works well with chicken thighs or boneless chicken breasts)
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp salt divided
  • 1/2 tsp pepper (or to taste) divided
  • 1 sweet potato chopped
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 1 lb brussel sprouts cut in halves
  • 1 granny smith apple chopped
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

  2. In a bowl, toss your veggies and apples together and pour a tablespoon of oil on top. Stir until vegetables are coated with the olive oil. Spread the veggies evenly on a sheet pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of salt and a dash of pepper.

  3. In a small bowl mix 1/4 cup Dijon mustard, a tablespoon of olive oil, and two teaspoons of thyme in a bowl.

  4. Salt and pepper your chicken and then spread the mustard mixture over your chicken.

  5. You can place your chicken on top of the vegetables or use a separate sheet pan. Roast for about 20 minutes for boneless chicken breasts or thighs, 35 to 40 minutes for bone-in chicken. Check with a thermometer (it should be 160 degrees).

    Roast vegetables on a sheet pan for 30 to 35 minutes turning once halfway through the roasting time.
