Maple Roasted Chicken & Sweet Potatoes

1 lb skinless chicken pieces
1 lg or 2 sm sweet potatoes
1 small onion
8 oz baby carrots
1/3 C maple syrup
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 450°.
Peel sweet potatoes and cut into 1" chunks. Cut the chicken pieces into 1" chunks too, if you like; or leave them whole, on the bone. (Whole pieces will take longer to cook through. If you're in a hurry...cut it up.) Cut onion into 1" pieces.
In a shallow baking dish or roasting pan, combine chicken, sweet potato, onion, carrots and maple syrup. Toss to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper.
Roast chicken mixture 40-45 minutes, stirring once half way through cooking and turning chicken pieces (if whole). Easy and delicious! :)

Cut a large piece of chicken in half to test that it's cooked through; there should be no pink.
