Del’s Roasted Chicken With Purple Sweet Potatoes 

Posted on Leave a comment

To celebrate the season two premiere of “The Way Home” on Hallmark Channel, I’ve created my version of Del’s famous roasted chicken from the first episode of season one! I wanted to stick with a traditional home-cooked meal feel, with my own addition of purple sweet potatoes!


-Small whole chicken

-2 purple sweet potatoes

-2 shallots

-2 cloves garlic

-1 bunch fresh sage

-2 cups vegetable stock

-1/2 cup red wine


-Herbs de Provence 

-Salt and Pepper 


Peel and cut purple sweet potatoes. Mince shallots, garlic and sage.

In a large/deep baking dish, place your chicken in the center. Arrange potatoes all around. Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper, oregano and herbs de Provence. Cover everything with minced shallots, garlic and sage. Top it all with vegetable broth and red wine. Roast at 400 degrees for an hour and a half (give or take depending on your oven). Let rest for 15 minutes and enjoy!
