Low Carb Roast Chicken & Sweet Potatoes

There’s nothing like Roast Chicken & Sweet Potatoes on a cold weekend day. I love this recipe – it is so versatile. No sweet potato at home? No problem – substitute with normal potato. Fancy extra veggies or a salad? No problem – pop them on the side! As I use chicken thighs in this recipe, it cooks really fast too meaning less time waiting around for dinner!

The best thing about this dish is that everything roasts in the oven together at the same time. Make a simple marinade from mustard, thyme, olive oil, salt and pepper for the chicken. Coat the sweet potatoes and onion with oil and season. Place the veggies on a warmed baking sheet and settle the chicken thighs on top. Roast 30-35 minutes and there you have it!
