    This was the sixth annual IGA Hometown Holidays Recipe Challenge cookoff winning recipe in 2007. Ancho chile powder isn't so hot, but rather smokey.

    Sweet Potatoes


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 11 x 14 inch baking dish with non stick cooking spray; set aside.
    2. 2
      Mix together olive oil, kosher salt, onion powder and garlic together; brush over the surface of the chicken pieces on both sides. Place the chicken into the baking dish, cover with foil and cook for one hour.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, make the sauce by whisking together the orange juice, orange sections, orange zest, brown sugar, ancho chile powder, cornstarch and parsley in a medium saucepan; bring to a simmer and cook 15 minutes then remove from heat; set aside.
    4. 4
      Remove chicken from oven and drain off the liquid. Spoon the orange sauce mixture over the chicken and return to oven, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until tender.
    5. 5
      Add the sweet potatoes to a large saucepan or dutch oven, cover with water and simmer until nearly fork tender or about 8 minutes. Drain the water off and using the same saucepan, add the olive oil and bring to medium low temperature. Saute the red bell pepper, onion, celery and jalapeno pepper for 3 minutes. Stir in the sweet potatoes. Cook, stirring for five minutes; stir in the apples, ginger, salt, white pepper and brown sugar. Continue to cook potatoes, stirring to evenly caramelize, for 15 minutes.
    6. 6
      To serve, spoon potatoes onto a platter topped with the chicken. Spoon any sauce over the top and sprinkle with toasted walnuts. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
