1 TBSP cooking oil
2 lb sweet potatoes, sliced 1/2 inch thick
4 bone in, skin on chicken thighs
1 TBSP lime juice
1 tsp lime zest
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp granulated garlic
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp dried cilantro
1/4 tsp granulated onion
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

3. In a small dish combine the salt, chili powder, smoked paprika, granulated garlic, cumin, dried cilantro, onion, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Toss the chicken in the spices and coat well.

4. Place the chicken skin side up on top of the sweet potatoes in the baking dish and bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes or until the chicken registers 170 degrees F in the thickest part of the thigh.

5. Garnish with lime circles and fresh cilantro.
