about this recipe

dairy free minimal ingredients 30 minute meal

Who says you can’t make a delicious dinner using simple ingredients? This easy skillet chicken and sweet potatoes recipe only takes 30 minutes start to finish & uses just a handful of ingredients, making it one of my favorite fallback meals (maybe ever).



Season the chicken thighs and brown them on both sides in a skillet at medium-high heat. Set aside.



Turn the heat down to medium, add avocado oil along with the sweet potatoes. Add salt, and cook for 5 minutes.



Meanwhile, melt the butter, honey, chipotle, and garlic together, either in the microwave or on the stovetop.



When the potatoes are slightly browned, add back the chicken and the sauce. Bake until the chicken is cooked through.

Get creative using up your leftovers to make them feel fresh & interesting! The leftover sweet potatoes easily become a quick breakfast hash by adding a few fried eggs on top. And leftover chicken can be enjoyed cold on top of lunch salads or shredded up & used for a pasta dinner.
