  • 8 chicken thighs on bone skin removed
  • olive oil or avocado oil
  • 2 large onions medium sliced
  • 2 lemons sliced in medium slices
  • 1 tablespoon or more of turmeric
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 3 sweet potatoes peeled, sliced in thick slices


  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Rub chicken thighs with olive oil.
  • Place sliced onions in shallow baking pan, covering the whole pan.
  • Place chicken over onions.
  • Place lemon slices in between all the chicken, first squeezing some of the juice over the chicken.
  • Sprinkle with salt, pepper, turmeric. Be generous with turmeric.
  • Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Turn over for 10-15 more minutes. You may want to turn over again for another five minutes so chicken is golden.
  • In another shallow baking dish, toss sweet potatoes in olive oil, salt, pepper and bake for 20-30 minutes until done.
  • Serve chicken over the sweet potatoes.


You can leave skin on chicken thighs if you're not counting calories.
