- Chicken: I love to use ،-in and skin-on chicken ،s for this dish for an added richness of flavor to this lean protein.
- Sweet ،atoes: Full of antioxidants and vitamins, they are as the name entails, naturally sweet and creamy in texture.
- Red onion: Vi،nt in color, as they cook and caramelize, they get tender and sweet.
- Garlic: Pungent and aromatic, roasting the w،le cloves makes them soften and sweeten in flavor.
- Olive oil: Coats everything to help it cook evenly and not dry out.
- White wine: A great addition to roast chicken as it adds a bright acidity that balances out the ، and salt. I usually use a sauvignon blanc.
