MethodPrep:20min ›Cook:1hr20min ›Ready in:1hr40min

    For the chicken:

  1. Preheat the oven at 210 C / Gas 6-7.
  2. Prepare the chicken seasoning in a mortar, by crushing the butter, garlic, cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and rosemary. Coat the chicken with the seasoning on both the outside (on the skin and under the skin), and the inside. Place the chicken in a large oiled baking dish. Add salt and pepper and place the lemon inside the bird.
  3. For the vegetables:

  4. Place all the vegetables (peppers, carrots, sweet potatoes and optionally potatoes) in a large salad bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Add the spices (cayenne, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper). Stir well again to distribute the spices. Distribute the seasoned vegetables around the chicken; if the dish is too small, put the rest of the vegetables in another oiled baking dish (see footnote).
  5. Place in the preheated oven and roast for 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes with a little water.
  6. After 1 hour lower the oven temperature to 180 C / Gas 4, and scatter the black olives around the chicken. Cover with aluminium foil (shiny side toward the chicken) and roast until the chicken is browned and the juices run clear, about 20 further minutes.


If you do not have a baking dish large enough to fit the chicken and all the veg, you can cook your chicken with a few vegetables in one dish, and cook the remaining vegetables in a separate dish. In that case you need to add a little chicken juice on the vegetables, after about 20 minutes into the cooking, so they don't dry out, and to add flavour.

Baked Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

Roast chicken will forever remind me of my childhood. At least 3 nights a week we would eat cinnamon roasted chicken, rice pilaf and a Syrian salad. And it was perfect every time.

Now that I’m a mom myself feeding my own family, I like to take the dishes of my childhood and put my own spin on them. This roast chicken recipe with sweet potatoes and white wine is a great example of me taking a basic cooking method and making it my own,

White wine is a great addition to roast chicken as it adds a bright acidity that balances out the fat and salt from the roast chicken and sweetness of the sweet potatoes. Prefer not to use alcohol? Swap out with chicken broth or apple cider instead. As always, be sure to liberally season your chicken and veggies with salt and pepper. (You can even add in a little cinnamon like my mom always did!)

As the red onions cook they begin to caramelize turning tender and sweet by the time they come out of the oven. If you don’t have sweet potatoes on hand feel free to swap out with butternut squash, red or Yukon gold potatoes. Truly any root vegetable will work even parsnips!

To serve, garnish with fresh parsley. Fresh herbs are a great way to brighten a dish that has been cooking for a while. This trick holds true for all dishes including stews, pastas, soups and more.

How do you know when the chicken breasts are cooked? When the juices come out clear, you know the chicken is done. You can also use a meat thermometer and when the internal cooking temperature reaches 170 degrees you know the chicken is done.

What are your favorite childhood dishes? I’d love to hear from you.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 serving cooking spray (Optional)
  • 2 sweet potatoes, sliced very thinly
  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes, sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 (2 to 3 pound) roasting chicken
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or to taste
  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease the top and bottom of a broiler pan with cooking spray.

Layer sweet potatoes, potatoes, and onion slices in the bottom of the broiler pan.

Place chicken, breast side down, on a work surface. Cut along both sides of the backbone with kitchen shears from top to bottom remove backbone. Flip chicken and splay it open. Press firmly onto breasts with your hands to break the breast-bone.

Brush olive oil over chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Place on the broiler pan top.

Roast in the preheated oven until juices run clear and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone, reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 1 hour.

Let cool before slicing, about 10 minutes. Serve with potato and onion mixture.

Recipe Summary

  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 3), peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1 chicken (3 to 3 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces
  • 6 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons bourbon

Heat the oven to 425°. In a large roasting pan, toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tablespoon of the oil, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Push them to the edges of the pan, leaving a space in the center for the chicken.

Rub the cavity of the chicken with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper. Twist the wings behind the back and tie the legs together. Put the chicken, breast-side up, in the center of the roasting pan. Coat the chicken with the remaining tablespoon oil, sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the pepper, and dot with the butter. Roast the chicken for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, bourbon, and the remaining 3/4 teaspoon pepper. Remove the roasting pan from the oven and stir the potatoes. Brush the chicken with about 2 tablespoons of the glaze and drizzle the potatoes with about 1/2 tablespoon of the glaze. Return the pan to the oven and cook, stirring the potatoes and brushing the chicken with the remaining glaze 2 more times, until the chicken and potatoes are just done, about 30 minutes longer. Transfer the bird and potatoes to a plate and leave to rest in a warm spot for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour off the fat from the roasting pan. Add any accumulated juices from the chicken to the liquid in the pan. Serve the chicken with the pan juices and sweet potatoes.

Roast Chicken with Sweet Potatoes, Cashew Brown Butter, and Shards of Cheese Recipe

Sweet potatoes and cashews share a certain quality of sweetness. Together with nutty-tasting browned butter, they make for a harmony of flavors and textures that can only be described as downright pleasing. Everything in this dish except the chicken can be made well in advance, so it is an ideal make-ahead option for a Sunday lunch or family dinner.

Roast Chicken with Sweet Potatoes, Cashew Brown Butter, and Shards of Cheese

  • 1 organic chicken (21⁄2 to 3 pounds), deboned or butterflied
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1¼ pounds sweet potatoes
  • 1⁄2 cup cashews
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 4 tablespoons (1⁄2 stick) unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or white balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 ounces aged sheep’s-milk cheese, such as Manchego
  1. Salt the chicken and refrigerate it.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Fit the sweet potatoes snugly into an ovenproof pot and cover tightly with foil and then a lid. Roast until very soft, 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 45 minutes. (The sweet potatoes can be cooked ahead and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.)
  3. Chop the cashews into smallish pieces. Strip the leaves off the rosemary sprig and chop them. Set a sieve over a small heatproof bowl.
  4. Heat the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the cashews and cook, stirring with a heatproof spatula, until the butter has mostly stopped foaming and has browned. Pour the cashews and butter into the sieve and then return the butter to the saucepan. Add the rosemary and cook over medium heat until the foaming dies down, then cook for another 30 seconds and pour over the cashews in the sieve. Transfer the cashews to a plate, salt them, and reserve the butter.
  5. MAKE the brown butter vinaigrette: Combine the butter with the vinegar and salt.
  6. Roast the chicken. Dry the bird, heat the oven, and roast the chicken.
  7. Slice the cheese into thinnish slices don’t worry if it crumbles. Rewarm the vinaigrette in a small pan. Reheat the sweet potatoes if necessary.
  8. Cut the chicken and sweet potatoes into manageable pieces and place on a platter. Scatter the cheese, cashews, and rosemary all over and spoon the hot vinaigrette over everything.

Roast Chicken Recipe

I can get a raw chicken from fridge to table in under thirty minutes by taking advantage of a skillet on the stovetop to start. Then I resort to a rarely, if ever, used part of the oven—the floor. In most ovens, the heat comes from a burner or heating element underneath a metal sheet on the bottom of the oven. The oven bottom acts as a diffuser and functions as a burner underneath the skillet, allowing the skin to continue to crisp while the ambient air temperature of the oven roasts the bird. The only part of the bird that ever needs to touch the pan is the skin side. The skin acts as a barrier between the tender, moist flesh and the hot cast-iron pan. Me, I’m not too fussy about how the interior of my oven looks, but be forewarned that over time this foolproof technique might scuff the oven floor a little.

I remove the backbone as well as the ribs and breastbone before cooking the chicken. This speeds the cooking and makes it easier to slice the breast meat. You can make the chicken without doing this, but it will take longer. Deboning the breast gets the best and quickest results. If you don’t know how, ask the butcher to do it for you (supermarkets are often happy to oblige). Failing that, you can butterfly the chicken at home (this is also known as a spatchcocked chicken). To do it yourself, remove the backbone by cutting down along both sides of it with a pair of kitchen shears (don’t worry about the ribs and breastbone). After removing the backbone, lay the chicken skin side down on a cutting board and press down hard to flatten it.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 whole chicken, about 4 pounds
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for rubbing
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds total), preferably garnet or jewel, scrubbed and each cut lengthwise into 4 wedges
  • 1/2 head cauliflower (about 1 pound), broken into 3-inch florets
  • 2 ounces pancetta, cut into a 1/4-inch dice (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 3 tablespoons capers, drained

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Let chicken stand at room temperature 1 hour. Pat dry, then rub with oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on a rimmed baking sheet.

Toss together sweet potatoes, cauliflower, pancetta, rosemary, and oil season with salt and pepper. Spread around chicken (they won't be in a single layer). Roast 25 minutes remove from oven.

Turn vegetables and add capers. Return to oven and roast until a thermometer inserted in thickest part of chicken thigh (without touching bone) registers 165 degrees, 25 to 30 minutes more.

Lemon & garlic roast chicken with charred broccoli & sweet potato mash

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and put the chicken in a large non-stick roasting tin. Halve 1 garlic clove and rub it over the chicken. Drizzle with oil, rub in with your fingers, then stuff the cavity with the thyme, 1 lemon half and the garlic you just used.

Cut the other lemon half into quarters and scatter around the chicken with the other garlic clove, halved.

Cover the tin with foil and bake for 40 mins, then remove the foil and spoon over the hot juices. Arrange the broccoli around the chicken, turning well in the juices, and return the tin to the oven for another 20-30 mins. To check that it is cooked through, pierce between the leg and thigh – if the juices run clear, the chicken is ready. Re-cover with foil and set aside while you prepare the sweet potatoes.

Put the sweet potatoes in a pan of boiling water, return to the boil, then simmer for 7-10 mins until tender. Drain well, then mash. Set aside 100g of sweet potato mash if using for Chicken wrap with sticky sweet potato, see 'goes well with', then add the cream cheese to the rest and stir well.

Remove the broccoli from the roasting tin and divide between 2 plates. Put the chicken on a serving plate, discard the lemon and garlic from the tin and remove as much of the fat from the juices as possible. Pour the remaining juices into a serving jug.

Carve the chicken and serve about 100g (1-2 slices) per person (keep the rest of the chicken for Chicken wrap with sticky sweet potato if making, see 'goes well with'). Serve with the broccoli and mashed sweet potatoes, and a drizzle of the lemony-garlic juices on top.
