Roast Chicken (or turkey) and Sweet Potatoes

Roast Chicken and Sweet Potatoes












Perfectly juicy and tender slices of chicken (or turkey) breast alongside buttery sweet potatoes and caramelized onions.  A sheet pan dinner bursting with flavor and ready in just 50 minutes!  Seriously delicious!  This is a perfect dinner for just two.

Roast Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

1-2 lb Chicken breast 

2 tablespoons olive oil 

2 teaspoons pepper, divided 

2 teaspoons sea salt, divided 

1 yellow onion, diced 

2 medium sweet potatoes, cut and diced (about 2 cups) 

4 oz butter, melted 

1/4 cup minced garlic 

1 teaspoon poultry seasoning

1 teaspoon thyme

1 teaspoon rosemary

1 teaspoon of sage


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 













Season turkey with salt, pepper, thyme, sage, rosemary, and poultry season on both sides. 













In a large, heavy pan, heat olive oil until light and shimmery. 












Sear until brown on all sides, about 2-3 minutes per side. 













While turkey is searing, add sweet potatoes and onions to baking sheet.





When turkey has browned on all sides (but not cooked through), place on baking sheet in the middle of onions and potatoes. 













Pour the pan drippings over the entire pan.














Roast in oven for 35-40 minutes, until 165 degrees internal temperature. Remove from oven and let rest at least 10 minutes before slicing turkey to let the meat rest and give the juices time to redistribute. Serve and enjoy!
