Satisfy your yearning for saucy seared chicken tonight, but ramp up the flavour by adding maple butter and our amazing BBQ spice blend to your sauce. Warmed in the pan with the chicken fond, that mix of sweet and spiced (but not spicy) will make for a sticky glaze that the whole family will be licking off their fingers. It’s a match made in heaven with the chicken, but it’s a dream drizzled over the thyme-roasted veggies, too.

Roast the vegetables
On a lined sheet pan, toss the potatoes, carrots, onion and ⅔ of the thyme with a drizzle of oil; season with the Zingy Garlic & Chive spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast, flipping halfway through, 26 to 28 minutes, until the vegetables are golden brown and tender when pierced with a fork.

Start the chicken
While the vegetables roast, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ½ the BBQ on Bourbon Street spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken thighs to the pan and cook, 4 to 6 minutes per side, until golden brown and partially cooked (if you received a different cut of chicken, find your alternate cooking method at www.makegoodfood.ca/chicken).

Finish the chicken
To the pan of partially cooked chicken, add the maple butter, balsamic vinegar, 3 tbsp water and 2 tbsp butter; season with the remaining BBQ on Bourbon street spice blend. Cook, spooning the sauce over the chicken*, 3 to 4 minutes, until the glaze has thickened, and the chicken is coated and cooked through. Season with S&P to taste.
