Harissa and Honey Roasted Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Thyme

Active Time: 10 minutes   |   Total Time: 1 hour   |   Serves 4  |  Gluten Free

  • 1 tablespoon harissa
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 (6 to 8-ounce) boneless chicken breasts
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1½ pounds sweet potato, cut into ½-inch thick pieces
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oven (with the oven rack in the lowest position) to 425°F.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the harissa, honey, and 1 teaspoon of the oil. Sprinkle the chicken with ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Add to the bowl and turn to coat. Let marinate while you prepare the sweet potatoes.

In a large skillet, combine the sweet potatoes, tomatoes, garlic, thyme, pepper, and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and ½ teaspoon salt. Toss to combine. Roast for 15 minutes. Then place the chicken on top of the vegetables and roast until the chicken is cooked through, about 35 minutes more.
