Maple and Mustard Harvest Roasted Chicken

 4 servings


 5 lb free range chicken, quartered

4 T. grass-fed butter

2 apples, cored and cut into 8 wedges

3 medium yellow onions, cut into 6 wedges

1 large sweet potato, cut into 1-2 inch chunks

1 small butternut squash, cut into 1-2 inch chunks

salt and pepper, to taste

olive oil

 Maple Mustard Sauce:

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

1/3 cup coarse, stone ground, or grainy mustard

2 T apple cider vinegar

2 T all natural worcestershire

1/3 cup chicken stock if you have some on hand. If not, use water

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 shallot, grated or 1 T finely chopped onion


 Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place apples, onions, sweet potato, and butternut squash in a large roasting pan. Dab 4 T butter over the vegetables. Roast for 10 minutes.

 While vegetables are roasting, combine all sauce ingredients into a small pot. Heat on the stove on medium heat and bring to a boil. Once boiled, turn off heat and leave on the stove.

 After the vegetables are done cooking for 10 minutes, arrange the quartered chicken over the veggies. Pour a good amount of olive oil and salt and pepper over the chicken. Pour the sauce all over the chicken. Roast for 1 hour or until chicken is done. Check the chicken a couple of times to make sure it’s not getting too dark. If it starts to get too dark, wrap some foil over the pan. Enjoy!
