Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.

Put the butter, sage and thyme in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals until the butter is melted, about 1 minute. Add the sweet potatoes, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and a generous amount of pepper and toss together. 

Put the potatoes in a 9-by-13-inch metal baking dish in a single layer (a glass dish should not be used at this temperature). Bake until the potatoes are a deep golden brown on the bottom, about 15 minutes. Flip and continue to bake until a deep golden brown on the second side, another 15 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth and continue to bake until the potatoes are soft and the liquid is almost completely reduced, about 15 minutes more. Transfer the potatoes to a serving platter, season with more salt and drizzle with honey.
