Sweet Potato and Orange Baked Chicken

  • 6 medium sweet potatoes (skin on or peeled if preferred)
  • 2 oranges, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 lbs. chicken breast
  • 1 large yellow onion, finely diced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh rosemary or thyme
  • 3 oz. orange juice
  • 4 ounces chicken stock

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the sweet potatoes and diced onions mixed together in the bottom of a baking dish, sprinkling over a little seasoning. Place the orange slices on top of the onions and sweet potatoes. Add on the chicken pieces. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and season again. Place the rosemary or thyme sprigs on the top and then pour over the orange juice and chicken stock. Bake approximately 1-1 ½ hours. Check to be sure chicken is cooked through before serving.
