But nobody can resist that delicious chicken and tender sweet potatoes!
- 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 3 teaspoons honey
- 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt, more as needed
- 1 to 2 cloves garlic, grated or minced
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 to 6 thighs bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
- 3 1/2 tablespoons Mazola® Corn Oil
- 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 1 green bell pepper, cubed
- 1 ½ teaspoon sage
- ¾ teaspoon smoked paprika
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne
- 1:In a small, shallow bowl, mix together vinegar and honey. Mix in half the red onion and a pinch of salt and set aside for garnish, tossing the mixture occasionally as the chicken cooks.
- 2:In a bowl, mix together 1 teaspoon salt, garlic, coriander and black pepper. Rub mixture on chicken. Let marinate for 30 minutes.
- 3: Heat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, toss together 3 tablespoons oil, sweet potato, pepper, remaining onion, sage, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, paprika, cayenne. Spread vegetables out on a rimmed baking sheet.
- 4: Add remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil to marinated chicken and turn to coat. Place chicken pieces, skin-side up, among the vegetables, making sure chicken is surrounded by them, but not on top of them. (Chicken should rest directly on the baking sheet.)
- Roast for 15 minutes. Remove pan from oven and raise heat to 450 degrees. Use a wide spatula to flip vegetables over (but not chicken). Drizzle chicken (but not vegetables) with 2 teaspoons liquid from the onion-vinegar mixture. Roast until chicken is cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes longer.
