This was so ridiculously simple that I didn’t even think to do a post on it. But Greg insisted and a good wife should never argue with her husband. Hey, does anyone else smell smoke? I might have just been hit by lightning. Or maybe my growing nose is just more sensitive to smell.
Roasted Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Onion
- 1 4-5lb whole chicken
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- roughly 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 sweet potatoes, chopped
- 1/2 large red or sweet onion, chopped
Rub chicken’s surface with olive oil. Separate skin from flesh without tearing it. Rub oil onto chicken flesh under the skin. Mix spices together in a small bowl and coat the entire outside of the chicken and rub the remainder on the breast under the skin. Place chopped vegetables in a roasting pan sprayed with cooking spray or just enough oil to keep the vegetables from sticking. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and then set the chicken on a rack over the vegetables. Roast at 365 degrees until meat is done, about 90 minutes. A digital thermometer should register 165 at the breast, which should take around 15 minutes a pound. While the chicken rests, return the vegetables to the oven and let them get crispier.
