I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Island Chicken, Pineapple and Sweet Potato

Only 4°C this morning and wishing summer weather would just get here!  But it's summerlike in the kitchen with this Island Chicken, Pineapple and Sweet Potato dish!

4 chicken legs, split
2 tsps ground cumin
1/4 - 1/2 tsp cayenne
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp vegetable oil
4 fresh pineapple spears
1 large sweet potato, cubed

Combine the cumin, cayenne, salt, pepper and turmeric in a bag. Add the chicken pieces 2 at a time and shake to coat.
Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet and brown the chicken, skin side down on medium heat about 5 minutes. Remove, skin side up, to a baking dish. 

Add the pineapple and sweet potato to the same skillet and cook for 2 minutes stirring up any brown bits from the pan. 

Place the pineapple and sweet potato in between the chicken pieces.

And bake in a 425°F oven for 40-45 minutes or until the chicken's internal temperature registers 165°F.

Summery served with rice and garden salad!
