Roasted Chicken with Sweet Potatoes

January 12, 2011

This is last night’s dinner: small chicken stuffed with limes, rosemary and onion roasted over chunks of sweet potato and wedges of more onion. Gravy from the pan drippings had all the flavors of the lime, rosemary and onion. The side dish was buttered peas with hazelnuts and tarragon. What a treat for a mid-week meal and it only took a few minutes to prepare, the oven did the rest. The chicken was juicy and tender, the sweet potatoes caramelized just slightly on the bottom as were the onions on the bottom of the pan. The 90 minutes of roasting was enough time to have a drink, put my feet up and relax. I love simple and tasty meals that are fabulous and comforting the first night and yield leftovers for soup, pasta or quiche the next day. more
