Roast Chicken with Cauliflower and Sweet Potatoes

Prep: 15 mins
Total: 1 hr 10 mins
Serves 4

Directions

  • 1Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Let chicken stand at room temperature 1 hour. Pat dry, then rub with oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • 2Toss together sweet potatoes, cauliflower, pancetta, rosemary, and oil; season with salt and pepper. Spread around chicken (they won't be in a single layer). Roast 25 minutes; remove from oven.
  • 3Turn vegetables and add capers. Return to oven and roast until a thermometer inserted in thickest part of chicken thigh (without touching bone) registers 165 degrees, 25 to 30 minutes more. Let chicken rest 10 minutes. Meanwhile, toss vegetables with pan juices and return to oven, if additional browning is desired, 5 minutes. Serve chicken with vegetables.

  • 1 whole chicken, about 4 pounds
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for rubbing
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 2 ounces pancetta, cut into a 1/4-inch dice (about 1/3 cup)
