This was alright. We really liked the sweet potato - pineapple combo as a side. The meat was good, extremely juice, just didn't have a wow flavor to it. I would make again, marinating the chicken first to give some added depth and flavor. We used bone-in skin-on thighs and boneless skinless breasts.
