Ingredients

4 carrots, cut into 1,5 cm pieces   400 g
4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1,5 cm pieces   700 g
8 shallots, cut in half   320 g
4 chicken thighs, bone-in   700 g
1 sprig rosemary, fresh   5 g
2 cloves garlic, pressed    
1/3 cup maple syrup   85 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 230°C/450°F.
  2. Prepare the vegetables: Cut the carrots and potatoes into pieces, about 1,5 cm; cut the shallots in half, then lay out the vegetables on a sheet or an oven-proof dish. Add the chicken pieces, rosemary, and pressed garlic. Pour the syrup on top, then mix all the pieces well to coat them thoroughly with the syrup. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Cook in the middle of the oven until it is golden-coloured, about 40 min. Turn the pieces halfway through the cooking. You may need to add a few spoonfuls of water to prevent the pieces from sticking to the sheet.
  4. Serve on the warmed dishes.
