Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Strip 1 tbsp thyme leaves (dbl for 4 ppl) from stems. Peel, then cut sweet potato into 1/2-inch pieces. Halve, then thinly slice Brussels sprouts. Peel, then quarter onion. Separate onion petals. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then season with half the garlic salt, pepper and thyme.
Add onions, sweet potatoes and 2 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with remaining garlic salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Roast in the middle of the oven until sweet potatoes are tender, 12-15 min.
Meanwhile, 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 an unlined 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. 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.
Return the same pan to medium. Add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then swirl the pan until melted. Add Brussels sprouts and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until Brussels sprouts are tender, 6-8 min. Add sour cream and 1/4 cup milk (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring often, until mixture thickens slightly, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Thinly slice chicken. Divide creamed Brussels sprouts between plates. Top with roasted veggies and chicken. Sprinkle almonds over top.
