  • 2  teaspoons  dried oregano, crushed
  • 1  teaspoon  cumin seed, crushed
  • 1  teaspoon  ground turmeric
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  garlic powder
  • 1/8 - 1/4  teaspoon  ground red pepper
  • 1 2 1/2 - 3  pound  whole broiler-fryer chicken
  • 3  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 4  medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced

1. In a small bowl combine caraway seed, oregano, cumin seed, turmeric, salt, garlic powder, and ground red pepper. Skewer neck skin of chicken to back; tie legs to tail and twist wings under back. Place chicken, breast side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Brush chicken with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.

3. Meanwhile, toss sweet potatoes with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and the reserved spice mixture. Pour apple juice into roasting pan around chicken. Add potatoes. Continue roasting for 40 to 55 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 180 degrees F to 185 degrees, drumsticks move easily in their sockets, and potatoes are tender. Remove from oven. Let chicken stand, covered, for 10 minutes before carving. Spoon potatoes into a serving bowl. Makes 6 servings.
