Absolutely delicious, I decided to use, half tarragon and half thyme because I was using powdered thyme. Uhh, it was sooo good! The sweet of the brown sugar, and the spices all go so well together, I could eat the sauce just by itself! I made this for me and my honey, and I had spare for a one-person lunch the next day. I usually dont try new recipes, because they usually dont end up to great. But this one is going to definitely be a staple. Since, I used bone in chicken legs, I got all the chicken I needed for $2.50. Def a must in this economy.

Cooked 2 sweet potatoes and 4 pieces of chicken (2 legs and 2 bone in theighs) and still wish i had doubled the sauce. The chicken was excellent! I didn't think brown sugar was going to pair well with thyme but it does so well!! I used dried thyme in the same quality as the fresh tasted great. Try it - at least with the chicken. Sweet Potatoes have lots of vitamins so I try to eat them but they aren't my fav veg so shrug. Whatever. Its fun to try new things. Seriously though try the chicken!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good mix of savory and subtle sweet This was so good! I had regular Italian dressing versus zesty and it came out delicious. I had two leg quarters but used the full measurements for the sauce and I'm glad I did. It was just enough. Between the sweetness of the sweet potatoes, the flavor of the thyme and the tanginess of the Italian dressing, this made for a very flavorful dish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made this tonight for dinner. Made this tonight for dinner. Used 4 thighs with skin & bones for 2 of us. Added 1 large onion cut in wedges to the sweet potatoes and doubled the sauce. I also microwaved the potatoes first for a few minutes to make sure they cooked through in the oven. They were perfect and the chicken was very moist and full of flavor. No need to cover pan during cooking. Have enough left over for another meal. Was very tasty, hubby enjoyed too! Will def make again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this with chicken breast I cut up. I made this with chicken breast I cut up. I seasoned the chicken breast with seasoning salt just so it would not be bland. I also, used 1 cup of Italian dressing, added onions, black pepper, garlic salt, covered with aluminum foil, and made steamed broccoli as a side. This turned out perfect, and my family loved it. Next time I think I will add mushrooms to the mix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am not a sweet potato fan, but this was really good. I am not a sweet potato fan, but this was really good. Since I have a small family, I used 2 small sweet potatoes and 5 skinless chicken legs. I added the chicken the last 40 minutes. I didn't strain or pour the drippings over the chicken at the end. I didn't think it was worth the trouble. Perfect meal and I will definitely make again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful fall recipe! Wonderful fall recipe! I boiled the potatoes a few minutes before tossing so they would cook more evenly in my oven and used boneless skinless chicken breasts. It was wonderful! Doubled the sauce and it was the perfect amount. I also substituted a geneneric 'italian seasoning' (lots of green dried seasonings) for the thyme. YUM!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This meal was just okay. This meal was just okay. I liked the most of the chicken, some of it was too dry but the moist parts were very good with lots of flavor. The sweet potatoes I did not care for at all. I would make the chicken again with this marinade but not with the sweet potatoes.
