Roasted Chicken with Asparagus and Sweet Potato Recipe

Yesterday was one of those days that I was like "THAT'S IS, I'M DONE!"  Everything started out well.  I went to the gym, had breakfast with a friend, but as soon as I got home things began to unravel. By the time I was ready to make dinner I was over it.  However, me being over it doesn't feed the family.  So I decided to head to the kitchen and see if I couldn't just throw some stuff together for an easy meal.  That is where this Roasted Chicken with Asparagus and Sweet Potatoes recipe was born.

**A reader recently pointed out that it took closer to 45 minutes for hers to finish cooking.  One thing to always remember is that everyone's oven are different.  Gas cooks differently that electric.  Old cooks differently than new.  So the time may vary a little.  Also, how I like my potatoes may be different than how you like yours. Feel free to make any adjustments that make this recipe work for you and your family.**
