A unique way to make your chicken. The sweet potato adds a subtle sweetness to the chicken and acts as a sealant to keep the juices locked in. I know you’ll love this one! Use the sauce of your preference, or try both. Thanks to Nechama Marmer for the idea.

Ingredients (13)

Chicken

Sauce #1

Sauce #2

Start Cooking

Prepare the Chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  2. Clean chicken and pat dry. Place onions and garlic on the bottom of a roasting pan, and add chicken on top.

  3. With a vegetable peeler, peel thin, wide strips of sweet potato (cut the leftovers into chunks and place around the chicken). Carefully place the strips on each piece of chicken, overlapping slightly, until they are covered entirely. (The strips will soften while baking and envelop the chicken pieces. It’s magic!)

Prepare the Sauce

  1. In a small bowl, combine ingredients of the sauce of your choice and pour over chicken, coating it evenly.

  2. Bake for an hour and a half covered and half an hour uncovered, basting occasionally.

  3. Serve over rice with onion-garlic dip. It’s amazing!

    The reason I like to cook chicken with the skin on is that it helps keep the moisture and prevents the chicken from drying out, even though I don't eat the skin. But in this case, it could be that the potatoes help with the moisture- I would recommend cooking it covered in the beginning and make sure there's always enough liquid. Then I would uncover it for the last 10-15 min so that the potatoes can get crisp.
