The Casserole for a Southern State of Mind
When supermarket display bins are overflowing with copper-fleshed sweet potatoes, turn to this easy, make-ahead recipe from the new book Sunday Casseroles: Complete Comfort in One Dish. It combines the versatile tuber (which adds a gorgeous hue) with saut??ed chicken breasts seasoned with sage and thyme, onion and bacon, plus a creamy white sauce. Author Betty Rosbottom says if you can find sweet potatoes that are actually labeled "yams," use them; they have the darker skin and richer-colored flesh that are perfect for this meal.
