Such a warm and comforting dish! The sweet potatoes were soft and savory, and the chicken was DELICIOUS with crispy skin and great flavor. I made as directed, other than subbing avocado oil for olive oil. By the way, the smell of this baking will bring the kids down from upstairs with growling bellies... be prepared...

Awesome! Wonderful flavours and quick to put together. I did have to make a couple of substitutions, used regular onions and Italian seasoning. I wish there was more sauce as it is delicious! I also used a whole chicken (cut up) so had two legs/thighs and two breasts. The chicken turned out nice and juicy with a lovely colour! Needless to say we were very happy diners last night! Thank you Dienia for another keeper/repeater recipe! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
