Maple-Roasted Chicken with Sweet Potatoes
This recipe came from Real Simple Magazine. I made it by the books, but I am going to play with it for the next time...
3-4 pounds Chicken Breasts
3 small sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons lite maple syrup
6-8 sprigs fresh thyme
Heat oven to 400° F.
Rinse the chicken and pat it dry. Cut off excessive skin.
Arrange the chicken and sweet potatoes in a roasting pan. Drizzle the oil over the chicken and vegetables and season with the salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Drizzle with the maple syrup and top with the sprigs of thyme.
Roast, stirring once, until the chicken is cooked through, about 1 hour, 15 minutes. Cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
