Roasted Chicken and Sweet Potatoes 

Sweet potatoes might just be my favorite food. Anywhere that has sweet potatoes as a side.. I’m game. Here in NWA ice and snow took over last night. This gave me the perfect opputunity to make a cozy dinner food for a movie night. I’m sure when you think cozy dinner food you immediately think chili.. well here’s another to add to your list. My whole mindset was to use campbells roasted chicken oven ready sauce. I went to two grocery stores and could not find it anywhere. I improvised and used McCormicks pot roast sauce and added honey. To be quite honest… I doubt I ever go back to the other sauce. This dinner was a hit and I have plenty of left overs. 


1 pound of chicken breasts- boneless thighs would be great too. 

1-2 large sweet potatoes (I used one but would have liked to have had more)

1 medium yellow onion 

1 package of mcCormicks pot roast slow cooker sauce (I found mine at harps in the soup isle. Look on the bottom shelf under all the seasoning packets) 

^^ There’s a pic of what the sauce looks like!

1-2 TBS of melted honey 

Directions: preheat oven to 450

If your chicken breasts are super thick like mine were, place one breast between two sheets of Saran Wrap and use a meat mallet or something hard to thin out the breast.  Cut the breast in half to make two breasts. If they are thin and will cook easier don’t worry about it. 

Cut your sweet potato and onion into cubes and place both in the bottom of a 9X13 dish. Make sure it’s deep enough or just use any casserole dish you have on hand. 

Place chicken on top of sweet potatoes and onions. Pour package of sauce all over the mixture and toss well until everything is coated. 

Heat your honey in the microwave and then pour on top and mix well again. 

Bake in oven for 35-45 minutes until chicken is no longer pink and the sweet potatoes are fully cooked. 

I served mine with roasted asparagus but you could also make a big salad!!!

Asparagus: coat in olive oil, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder and place on a tin foil lined baking sheet at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. 

To make it easy I put the asparagus in with dinner for the last 15 min. 

Enjoy 🙂
