To start, cover a large sheet pan with aluminum foil, this makes for even easier cleanup. You can also spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray if you prefer not to use foil. For this recipe I decided to use chicken tenders but chicken breasts also work will with this dish. (Cooking time may vary on depending on size of chicken.) Next up, place chicken on the prepared pan.

In a small bowl whisk together maple syrup, olive oil, and Dijon mustard. Brush the mixture on chicken and then season the chicken with thyme, salt and pepper. Add the squash and potatoes to the pan and coat them with a little extra olive oil then season with salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes and then add the broccoli into the mix. Bake about 10-15 more minutes and then remove from oven.
