Spicy Chicken and Sweet Potato

Spicy Chicken and Sweet Potato”recipe” is a less specific recipe and a concept we love recently. Liking to eat in our REAL LIFE. I didn’t do this for the blog – I did it for real life first. And now I love it so much that I want to share it on the blog. And this order sounds refreshing.

Spicy Chicken and Sweet Potato


  • 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 3 tablespoons spicy seasoning mix*
  • a few tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 5–6 cups broccoli florets (broccolini FTW)
  • coarse sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
  • avocado / hummus / lemon juice / chives / olive oil for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Toss the chicken pieces with the spices and a quick stream of olive oil. Stir to combine; store in the fridge for about 30 minutes while you prep other ingredients.
  2. Arrange the vegetables on their own sheet pans (preferably ones with edges to catch drips, etc.). Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt. Arrange the chicken on a separate sheet pan.
  3. Bake all ingredients for 12-15 minutes. Remove the broccoli and chicken. Stir sweet potatoes and roast another 15 minutes or so.
  4. Done! Divide your servings out into containers and be happy you have meal starters ready for the week!

*I am currently having a moment with this Cajun seasoning mix – it’s a super versatile mix of garlic, salt, onion, paprika, oregano, white pepper, and red pepper, and just the right amount of spicy for us. It would be really easy to make yourself, too, like so. But really, any spice mix you like could work here. The only guidelines I’d give would be to adjust based on salt and spiciness. So if your mix doesn’t have salt in it, add plenty of salt yourself, and if it’s not spicy enough, add a little cayenne. Also – any vegetables will work here! This is the combo we’re currently loving, but asparagus has treated us well as have kalettes, brussels, and carrots.

    Spicy Chicken and Sweet Potato.These bowls are super clean and healthy, but they collect tons of flavor with all the spices added to the chicken. I have done it twice since then and actually did prepare some working lunch for the week last night. It was the first time that I used only broccoli and sweet potatoes, but I added some cauliflower rice that I should use before going bad this week. My husband liked it with his brown rice (3 minutes frozen Trader Joe’s brown rice is my favorite.)
    I used the pre-chopped sweet potato container to save time and make it even easier.

    The other thing I like about this recipe is that there is almost no cleaning.
    You cover the pans with foil and you can put them in the trash when you finish the foil!I recently tried to add more sweet potatoes to my diet. I grew up eating sweet potatoes. They were always prepared in a traditional, spirit food form. I’m not a big fan of sweet food. That’s why I gave up sweet potatoes. I decided to test this recipe because the bowls make food preparation very easy.

    Hot pepper, paprika and cinnamon give the dish a nice and delicious flavor. Just before the meal, I squeezed a small slice of lemon on the bowl. Delicious! Chicken taste makes more juice.
