serves 4

What You Need
4 chicken thighs, skin on
Garlic powder
Olive oil
1 TBS garlic, minced
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
5 TBS dijon mustard
2 TBS water
1 TBS olive oil
2 cups sweet potato, cut into cubes
8 ounces green beans, ends cut off and cut in half
Fresh thyme

1. Preheat oven to 400° and mix together the maple syrup, dijon mustard, olive oil, and water in a small bowl. Set aside.
2. Season both sides of chicken thighs with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
3. Heat a large oven proof skillet over medium to high heat and add olive oil. Once oil is hot, add in chicken thighs, skin side down. Let cook for 5 minutes or until skin is crispy and then flip over and turn down heat to medium low.
4. Add in garlic and cook for 1 minute and then add in maple syrup mixture to the pan and mix everything together. 
5. Add in sweet potatoes and toss everything together. Season whole dish with salt and pepper and top with fresh thyme sprigs. 
6. Place pan in oven and let cook for 30 minutes. 
7. While dish is cooking, place green beans into a medium sized bowl and season with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
8. Once 30 minute are up, remove the thyme springs and add the green beans to the pan. Place pan back in oven and let cook for 15 minutes. 
9. At this point, the chicken should be cooked through and ready to eat. Enjoy!

Would recommend making extra sauce for additional drizzling once dish is cooked.
