½ large Cabbage, shredded
1 large Golden Beet, cut into thin wedges
1 medium Red Onion, cut into thin wedges
1 Apple, cut into thin wedges
1 tsp Salt
Pepper to taste
2 cloves Garlic, minced
Long drizzle of Olive Oil
¼ cup Balsamic Vinegar
8 boneless, skinless Chicken Thighs
2 tbsp fresh Thyme
½ cup Pecans (or walnuts), coarsely chopped
2 tbsp Maple Syrup
¼ tsp salt
Step by Step Instructions
Set oven to 350°. Place pecans in a small dish.
Add maple syrup and ¼ tsp salt. Mix well and set aside.
Place all other ingredients into a large bowl and mix well until everything is evenly coated with seasoning and olive oil. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet and distribute evenly, keeping chicken thighs on top.
Give the pecans a stir then sprinkle them over the pan (drizzle any salted maple syrup that has collected in the dish over the pan as well).
Pop the pan in the oven for 35 – 40 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through, then turn the heat up to 400° for 5 minutes.
When the chicken is cooked through remove the pan from the oven and share everything over 4 plates, then sit down and enjoy the delightful savory flavors of the simple one-pan-wonder that you have created for dinner! (Clean-up is going to be so easy!)
