Roasted chicken and sweet potatoes

Today's dinner is also a success. Miranda eats at Alli's on Tuesdays because of dance, but the other two got home from soccer practice and DEVOURED their meals. Of course, they are so hungry by that time, i think they'd devour garbage if I fed it to them :)
Not that I would do that....

I bought some of this stuff last week and used it on steaks. I was intrigued by the fact it lists coffee in the ingredients. I am making the steak later this week, or early next. It was good, so i will post that recipe later.

This time, I used it on chicken.

and served it with a side of sweet potatoes. 

Also served leftover broccoli and biscuits.
Here are the recipes..

Roasted chicken with Sweet Potatoes

1 1/2 sweet potatos, cubed into 1 inch cubes
salt and pepper
olive oil
1 bunch green onions, cut into 1 inch lenghts
cut up chicken
1 Tbs Cowboy Rub (or any other seasoning of choice)

Preheat oven to 450. 
In large bowl, mix the potatoes with salt, pepper and olive oil. 
Arrange potatoes on a rimmed cookie sheet and roast for 20 minutes.
Add the green onion pieces to the potatoes, and roast 10 minutes more.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss chicken pieces with olive oil, seasoning, and salt until coated.
Roast the chicken for 25 minutes or until juices run clear.

It takes a while for the baking times, but it is super-easy to prepare. And quite delicious. I love roasted foods in the fall.....
