roast chicken + smoky sweet potatoes (gluten + dairy free)

This is my favourite dinner at the moment. Inspired by an instagram pic from Against All Grain and I figured out how to do the smoky potatoes. I hope you enjoy this one. It’s great for families because you can do 2 chickens and have leftovers the next day. Having a chicken and mayo sandwich on white bread is right up there with egg and mayo on fresh bread for me when it comes to all time favourite lunches.

roast chicken + smoky sweet potatoes (gluten + dairy free)
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6-8
What you'll need
  • 2 whole chickens (we use free range organic)
  • 2 -3 large sweet potatoes
  • olive oil
  • smoked paprika
  • vegetable stock or salt
  • pepper
  1. Place the chickens in a roasting dish and cover with a bit of stock and pepper. Pour on some olive oil and rub into the chicken skin.
  2. You can also chuck a quartered lemon in there if you like or some herbs on the chicken.
  3. Roast in a 180 degrees oven until cooked. I generally do mine at least 1½ hours
  4. Peel and cube the sweet potatoes and lay on some baking paper on a baking tray or dish. Add in a bit of olive oil, pepper, salt and smoked paprika. Go crazy with the smoked paprika. I usually don't but you are baking it out so be generous.
  5. When the chickens have about ½ hour to go pop the potatoes in the oven and stir a few times throughout cooking.
  6. Serve up with some wilted spinach or a side salad and lots of nice warm chicken.
  7. This is also great cold the next day.

    Hi Corrie! This looks so yum! The problem in our house is I’d have to cook 4 chooks and 6 times that amount of veggies to have a hope of leftovers!!! And there are only 5 of us! Mind you we have 3 boys (the 4 and 12 year olds are bottomless pits) and a hubby with a physical job who is hanging out for a good home cooked meal at the end of the day!
    Ps hope your loving your TM 5! You can make the HUGEST batch of custard in next to no time!
