Looking for something quick and easy on a weeknight? I just threw together this simple sweet potato and grilled chicken donner. It's very little work and you only need ingredients in your cupboard. Simply amazing!
Total cook time: 1-1.5 hr for sweet potato, 15 mins for chicken
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1 large sweet potato
- Coconut oil (or olive oil)
- Dried Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 425.
Wash sweet potato; poke some holes in it with a fork, then wrap that baby in tin foil and place on top rack. Cook for 30 mins, then turn and cook for another 30 mins.
Note: I had to cook mine about 15 mins longer because the middle was so thick.
While the potato is baking, melt your coconut oil and pour over chicken. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning over chicken, generously! Let it sit in the fridge until about ten minutes before the potato is done.
Preheat grill to medium. Place chicken on grill, about 5-8 mins per side. Use a meat thermometer to make sure your chicken reaches 165 degrees. Remove and serve with buttered sweet potatoes! Enjoy!!
