Chicken and sweet potatoes unite with the delicious taste of rosemary in this easy, one-skillet meal. Because we use parcooked and unseasoned sweet potatoes, the cooking time is much shorter--making this recipe perfect for weeknight cooking.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 12-inch nonstick skillet heat 3 teaspoons of the oil over medium. Stir in garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, 1/4 teaspoon of the rosemary and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Add potatoes; toss to coat. Cook, covered, 5 minutes (do not stir).

  • Push potatoes to one side of skillet. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to other side of skillet. Arrange chicken in skillet alongside potatoes. Cook, uncovered, 8 minutes.

  • Stir potatoes and turn chicken. Sprinkle chicken with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, rosemary, and pepper. Top with lemon slices. Cook, covered, 8 to 10 minutes more or until chicken is done (165 degrees F) and potatoes are brown. (If needed, remove potatoes as they are done and continue cooking chicken until done.) If desired, sprinkle with additional rosemary.

I fried apple slices in the pan after taking the sweet potatoes out while continuing to cook the chicken. The result was a subtle sweetness to the meal. Apples fried in small amount of oil spices etc would be a good side dish. Read More

The potatoes burnt while the chicken was cooking. The flavors mixed well though. I want to try this again and see how I can do it without the chicken turning dry and the potatoes overcooking. Read More

Really enjoyed it and would make it again. I didn't use the rosemary but the salt pepper and garlic powder made a great seasoning. Read More
