Sweet potatoes

I love sweet potatoes especially when I cook them with chicken and garlic. It’s a wonderful meal, easy to prepare and delicious to eat. This meal is a great alternative to the Sunday lunch of chicken and mashed potatoes, so if you are stuck for ideas next Sunday why not try this?





For 2 persons


· 2 chicken pieces (I use legs alot)

· 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into long slices

· 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and cut into small slices

· 2 onions peeled and cut into quarters

· 2 tsp. mixed herbs

· Water


1. Heat up the oven to 200C or gas mark 6.

2. Get a large ovenproof baking tray (not too deep) and add the chicken then place theRoasted Sweet Potatoes (orange kind) sweet potato chunksall around the chicken. Add the slices of garlic and the onions.

3. Sprinkle the chicken with the mixed herbs then pour the water into the tray, filling the tray about ½ full. Place the tray into the oven.

4. Cook until the potatoes are soft and the chicken cooked through. It takes about 90 minutes in my oven.

5. Remove and serve immediately.
