Preparation Mode:

To make the balsamic glaze, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). While the oven is preheating, mix the balsamic vinegar, honey, soy sauce, Dijon mustard, olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir well and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the glaze thickens.

Set aside. Transfer the chicken thighs to a big bowl, pour over half of the balsamic glaze, and let the chicken sit for at least 15 minutes so the flavors seep into the meat. Prepare the vegetables while the chicken marinates: cut the red onion into wedges, slice the carrots, peel and cube the sweet potatoes, and halve the Brussels sprouts.

Arrange the veggies on a baking sheet, cover with olive oil, season with salt, pepper, and fresh thyme, and toss to coat. Using the remaining balsamic glaze, evenly distribute the flavors over the marinated chicken thighs and vegetables on the baking sheet. Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and the vegetables are soft and have a golden brown edge.

Allow the dish to rest for a few minutes before serving, and garnish with more fresh thyme for a fragrant finish. This recipe is perfect for a family dinner or a special occasion, as it will impress your guests with its exquisite taste and presentation. Serve the Balsamic Glazed Chicken Thighs with Roasted Vegetables as a wholesome and visually stunning main course.

The succulent chicken, paired with the caramelized vegetables, offers a perfect balance of textures and flavors.
