For the Spice Mix

For the Stuffing


  • Mix together the spices in the spice mix.
  • Saute 1-2 onions in butter.
  • Peel and cut up 2-3 sweet potatoes and place them in a pot of water. Bring the water to a boil, then drain.
  • Add the onions, about half of the spice mix, and a tablespoon or so of butter to the sweet potatoes. Stir to combine, then stuff as much of it as will fit into the bird (if preparing with a bird). Spoon the rest of the stuffing into the pan, around the bird.
  • Peel and cut up 3-4 more sweet potatoes, toss in melted butter, and add to the pan. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup dried cranberries over the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle the rest of the spice mix over everything.
  • Put the chicken into a cold oven and turn it on to 425ºF for 25 minutes. (Or a preheated oven for 20 minutes.) Reduce heat to 375ºF and add 1-2 apples, cut up; there is no need to peel.
  • Cook until bird reaches internal temperature of 175ºF or until heated and softened (if prepared outside of the bird).
