Roasted Chicken DinnerPosted: January 8, 2013
I don’t know why I didn’t ever make this before I started the lifestyle change. It is truly delicious and doesn’t feel even close to what you would think would be a “healthy dish”. This is the kind of dinner that encourages me to continue to embrace the way I eat now. It is easy and healthy and filling.
What you need:
- 1 whole, organic, pesticide, antibiotic, and everything yucky, free chicken
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 1 large onion
- 5 cloves of garlic
- olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
What you do:
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat bottom of large baking dish or roasting pan with olive oil. Rinse chicken and add to the pan. (I like to cook mine breast side down. You do you 😉 ) Chop sweet potatoes, onion, and garlic and toss around chicken. Cover with olive oil and salt and pepper and rub into chicken. (Feel free to add any other seasonings that you like.) Bake for about 1 hour 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
If you have left over chicken, this would be great to add to a stew, soup, salads or sandwiches.
This never happens in my house.
