Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F.Wash and dry all produce. Strip 1 tbsp thyme leaves (dbl for 4 ppl) from stems. Halve, then thinly slice Brussels sprouts. Peel, then quarter onion.

Add onions, squash and 2 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Roast veggies in the middle of the oven until the squash is tender, 12-15 min.
While veggies roast, heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Sear until chicken is golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. Transfer to another baking sheet. Bake in the top of the oven until chicken is cooked through, 10-12 min.** Carefully wipe the pan clean.
Reheat the same pan over medium heat. Add almonds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Transfer to a plate. Set aside.
