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] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

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


  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.

SO good! I used small white potatoes because my grocery store was out of sweet potatoes, and also dried rosemary instead of fresh. I've also made it with sweet potatoes, which is even better. The chicken gets nice and crispy and the maple flavour is delicious. I make this often, it's great!

The sweet potatoes don't need the maple syrup for my taste, I would just brush a tbs on the chicken.
