Sheet-Pan Chicken & Brussels Sprouts

Roasted Brussels sprouts and chicken thighs are a match we go back to over and over again in the Test Kitchen. Paired with cumin, thyme, sweet potatoes and a hit of sherry vinegar, they create one of our favorite easy dinner recipes.


Ingredient Checklist

  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 4 cups Brussels sprouts, quartered
  • 1 ¼ pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed 
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar

Toss sweet potatoes with 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Spread evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes.
