What's For Dinner Wednesday: Balsamic BBQ Chicken & Roasted Sweet Potato Hash

So, have you discovered Pinterest yet?  It's my new obsession.  I discovered this website during our Thanksgiving downtime and I have been hooked ever since.  I've used it to create entirely new wardrobes (for weekends, work, and formal events no less), to decorate each room in the home that we have yet to buy, to rehash and re-plan the wedding that we already had, but mostly I've used it as my new online recipe collection.  I've found tons of recipe ideas here and it's introduced me to some new food blogs that have become some of my favorites-- see the sidebar at the right for a few that I really like (in addition to some great lifestyle blogs and some others written by our friends).

Tonight's main course was a recipe that I found on Pinterest courtesy of CenterCutCook.com.  I love anything made with balsamic vinegar and Alex loves manning the grill-- even in the chilly Chicago winter... he just wheels it right up to the door on our deck!  So when I found this recipe for Balsamic BBQ Glazed Chicken I knew it would be a dinner success.  I paired it with some simple steamed broccoli and a delicious roasted sweet potato hash.  Make sure you reserve some of the Balsamic BBQ for dipping the grilled chicken!


Roasted Sweet Potato Hash
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, diced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 medium yellow or Vidalia onion, diced
  • 2 tsp. fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine all ingredients and spread out evenly on a large jelly roll pan.  Roast for 15 minutes and then stir the mixture to make sure nothing burns to the pan and that it all cooks evenly.  Bake 30-40 minutes or until sweet potatoes are slightly browned and fork tender.  Enjoy!
