Ingredients and their health benefits

Eating well isn’t just about filling up—it’s about fueling up with the right stuff! And let me tell you, the ingredients in this dish are right in every sense of the word.

Chicken Thighs

Chicken thigs

We’re using boneless, skinless chicken thighs here to keep things lean and packed with nutrition. They’re a great source of high-quality protein for muscle repair and growth, plus vitamins B6 and B12 to keep your energy up and your body functioning smoothly.

Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes

Talk about a nutritional knockout! Sweet potatoes are brimming with fiber to keep you feeling full longer. They’re also packed with vitamin A for eye health and have a sweet, natural flavor that makes everything taste better.

This green champ packs a serious punch of vitamins K and C, along with fiber, iron, and antioxidants. But if broccoli’s not your jam, feel free to swap it out with any other veggie powerhouse—spinach, cauliflower, or asparagus all work great!

With these nutritious, versatile ingredients in hand, we’re ready to jump right into the magic of making this mouth-watering meal. Let’s roll up our sleeves and get cooking!

Getting Ready

First things first, get everything ready and at hand! Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). This temperature will give it the perfect heat to get our chicken and sweet potatoes nice and crispy.

Prep the Chicken

Grab your boneless, skinless chicken thighs and give them a little love with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and your favourite herbs (I love a good sprinkle of rosemary and thyme!). Make sure they’re well-coated—this not only adds flavor but also helps get that delicious golden crust.

Prep Sweet Potatoes

For a rustic feel and extra nutrition boost, we’re not peeling the sweet potatoes. Just give them a thorough rinse, chop them into bite-sized pieces, and toss them in a mix of olive oil, a pinch of salt, and a dash of cinnamon for a warm touch. This simple seasoning brings out the natural sweetness of the potatoes.

Roast it up

Arrange the chicken thighs and sweet potatoes on a baking sheet. Make sure they’re not overcrowded; this helps them roast evenly. Pop them in your preheated oven and let them roast for about 25-30 minutes. 180°C (350°F)

Tenderstem Broccoli or Veggie Swap

I love tenderstem broccoli because it’s packed with nutrition and the stems are especially good! Simply steam them, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle a little salt. But you can always swap it for other veggie powerhouses like cauliflower, carrots, or peas. Just follow the same drill— steam, oil, and a bit of salt.

Check and Serve

Plate everything up with the steamed broccoli (or your chosen veggie), seasoned to perfection. Serve this hot and fragrant dish straight from the oven and enjoy the flavours of a meal that’s not just filling, but truly nourishing!

Customization Ideas

One of the best things about cooking at home is making each dish your own. Here’s how you can tweak this recipe to suit your taste or what you’ve got in the pantry:

Change Up the Herbs and Spices: Not a fan of rosemary or thyme? No problem! Try marinating your chicken in paprika and garlic for a bit of a kick, or a sprinkle of Italian seasoning for a Mediterranean vibe. Experimenting with spices can completely transform your dish.

Vary the Veggies: While I adore tenderstem broccoli, feel free to mix it up. Cauliflower, carrots, or even peas are fantastic substitutes. Each brings a unique flavour and set of nutrients. Think of it as a veggie adventure on your plate!

Add a Crunch: For an extra texture, toss some chopped nuts or seeds on the veggies before serving. This not only adds a pleasant crunch but also boosts the nutritional value of healthy fats and proteins.

Make it Creamy: Stir in a dollop of Greek yoghurt or a swirl of light cream into the sweet potatoes after roasting for a creamy, indulgent twist. It’s a great way to add richness without too much guilt.

Go International: Infuse international flavours by using curry powder in the seasoning, or top the finished dish with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime for a zesty, fresh finish.

These simple tweaks can help you tailor the dish to your taste preferences or dietary needs, making it a versatile option for any day of the week!

How should I store leftovers?

If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. When reheating, simply pop them in the microwave or warm them up in a skillet over medium heat for that just-cooked taste.

Can I use chicken breasts instead of thighs?

Absolutely! Chicken breasts work well if you prefer them, but keep in mind they tend to dry out faster than thighs. You might want to adjust the cooking time to about 15-20 minutes and make sure not to overcook them.

Can I make this recipe in advance?

You sure can! Prep everything ahead of time and store it separately in the fridge. When you’re ready to eat, arrange the pre-seasoned chicken, sweet potatoes, and veggies on a baking sheet and roast them as directed. Dinner will be on the table in no time.

Are there any other ways to season the sweet potatoes?

Totally! Instead of olive oil and cinnamon, you can try coconut oil and a sprinkle of smoked paprika for a unique flavour profile. Or keep it savoury with garlic powder and a dash of cumin for an earthy kick.
