Baked Rosemary Chicken Thighs and Sweet Potatoes

I am telling you, the Paleo lifestyle has been life changing for me.  Also, the food is awesome!  I honestly don't miss the wheat, diary or sugar.  Plus, the family is totally behind the change.  That makes it so much easier.

My sweet hubby is the one who found this recipe on Facebook.  The original recipe post can be found at

This is a great weekend meal.  It would be fabulous as a Sunday dinner.  

Baked Rosemary Chicken Thighs and Sweet Potatoes

8 chicken thighs (w/ skin and bone)
1-2 sweet potatoes (light skinned variety) peeled, sliced and halved
1/2 C extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 Tbsp dried oregano
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Pinch sea salt (optional)

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2.  Put chicken and potatoes in a large bowl.

3.  Add olive oil to bowl and stir to coat all pieces of chicken and potatoes thoroughly.  

4.  Empty bowl of chicken and potato pieces into a large baking dish.

5.  Sprinkle with fresh rosemary and other herbs and spices.

6.  Bake for 1 hour, uncovered.

7.  To ensure extra flavor and crispness, baste chicken and potatoes.

This dish sent wonderful aromas throughout the house.  This one is definite keeper!  Thanks honey for finding such a great recipe!!

Love to you all from the
