Chicken Roasted on Sweet Potatoes And Garlic

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by KitchenManiac

I adapted this recipe from Donna Hay's Flavours Cookbook. In HER recipe she used normal potatoes instead of sweet potatoes. But I prefered it with the sweet potatoes. A very delicious and simple recipe. Quick whip up.

Great combination of flavors and easy to make.I threw in even more garlic and spread it on some warm, buttered crusty bread.
