Caribbean Chicken

Here’s a yummy dish to warm your belly on a chilly, fall day. Everyone loved this dish, especially the kiddos who like a reason to cast aside eating utensils for fingers–chicken on the bone being a perfect excuse.

This meal was tasty and filling, and the sweet potatoes and peppers make it a nice fall dish. Instead of using whole chicken legs, I used four chicken legs and four thighs. This worked well for our family. You can use any chicken pieces that you prefer, just make sure they have skin-on and bone-in.

We served this over brown rice, but if you’re feeling extra fancy, it would be delicious with black beans and rice.
