1whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces by your butcher
1/4cupolive oilplus more for coating sweet potatoes
1/4cupbutter, meltedhalf of a stick of butter
1tspcurry powder, mild
4-6wholesweet potatoes, washed, peeled and cut into cubes
1smallred onion, thinly sliced into strips
2tbspfresh parsley for garnishing
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Add diced sweet potatoes, sliced onions, garlic, and thyme to a lightly oiled baking sheet. Drizzle with just enough olive oil to coat all of the potatoes, tossing with your hands to combine. Spread the potato mixture evenly on the pan, making sure that it is in a single layer for even baking.
Lay each piece of chicken directly on top of the sweet potato mixture.
In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup olive oil, melted butter, garlic powder, salt, paprika, curry powder and cumin. Whisk until uniform. Brush the sauce liberally onto the chicken pieces. It will run down into the potatoes. No worries - this is a good thing!
Move the pan into the preheated oven. Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until the thermometer reads 165 degrees at the thickest part of the meat.
Remove from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
