Original recipe yields 2 servings



  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir the apple, sweet potatoes, onion, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Pour into a baking dish and place the chicken breasts on top.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 45 to 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

The flavors go together really well. The only reason I knocked off a star is because I think the temperature needs to be upped to 375 F. After an hour at 350, my chicken was still pink and the sweet potatoes were raw. I'm not sure why I didn't raise the temperature. I normally bake chicken breasts at 375 and sweet potatoes at 400. Nothing seems to happen at 350. Maybe it's my oven.



I used four bone-in chicken thighs, splash of apple juice, dried cranberries and a shallot instead of the onion. Everything else in the recipe was kept as is. Sometimes you just have to work with what's in the pantry and freezer. Turned out fantastic! Next time I will cook it in the crockpot and make some stuffing for a side dish.



This is a very good and satisfying recipe. After reading reviews, I sauteed small chopped sweet potato, celery and apple in 1T olive oil. Then added spices when the vegetables/fruit were getting soft. Placed in baking dish. After that, browned 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and then put on top. Added about 1 cup of chicken broth and cooked at 365 degrees for 45 minutes and it was done. You definitely need the broth.
