Curry Chicken and Sweet Potatoes
This recipe has evolved over the years and has become a primary comfort food in my household. I used to make this dish in my iron skillet. When I first started preparing it I would place the entire skillet w/lid in the oven at 350 for up to 45 minutes. This really caramelized and sometimes burned the sweet potatoes and other ingredients. These days I prepare this dish in my Lodge enameled 6 quart pot for easy clean up and no worries of metal leaching into dish.

Moisture content of sweet potatoes and onions will determine cooking time but average is about 30 minutes. The idea is to get the sugars in the vegetables to caramelize without burning. Caramelization will occur just prior to burning so watch this carefully after about 25 minutes.

Can be served over a spring mix of greens with olive oil drizzled over top.

This dish is exceptional when reheated and eaten the next day.
