I love how I can throw all the ingredients in one pot and I really like how you get a light caramelization from the sweet potatoes and the honey. I love the surprise flavor from the rosemary and the dried cranberries and I love how the entire meal is in one dish.
This dish is colorful and flavorful, as well as pretty easy to throw together. I added rosemary because it paired well with the flavors and added a nice pop of color. Make sure to use a pan that is oven-proof, as well as a lid. We think these maple glazed chicken with sweet potatoes turned out great, what do you think? Will you be giving it a try?
