SIMple Roast, Tatoes and Butt’s

A freshly cooked home meal every night sounds a lot more appealing until you’re in the kitchen for the third night in the row, with no idea what to cook.  That’s why I prefer cooking meals that last, my wife and I at least two nights.  Preparation for this meal takes about 10-15 min (depending on your cutting skills), and total cooking time is 1 hour.  Please note that I only use free-range chickens, I would recommend you consider doing the same 🙂

Alright, so what do you need?

  • One free-range Chicken
  • 500g Sweet Potatoe
  • 500g Butternut
  • 1 Lemon
  • Oil
  • Honey
  • Garlic
  • Butter
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Cinnamon


  1. Switch the oven on – set to 180 Degrees C.
  2. Create a working space: place all your ingredients together and get out that chopping board.
  3. Lekker now – you’re organised!  The best chefs are 🙂
  4. Cut up all your sweet potatoes into small cubes, and do the same with the butternut.  Clean up station. Place aside.
  5. Crush garlic, place aside.
  6. Get yourself a tray or dish, gooi some oil (not too much) to grease.
  7. Place your chicken in the middle and rub the oil with S&P, squeeze some lemon, and I place a few small butter cubes of butter on top, so it melts into the chicken.
  8. Gooi the rest of your tatoes and nuts, some more S&P, plus a sprinkle of cinnamon, and pop into the oven.
  9. Set the timer for 1 hour, with a turn of the chicken and veg at the middle mark (thirty-minutes).
  10. Once plated, sprinkle a drizzle of honey over the veg 😉  Enjoy!
