This bake might not be anything fancy, but we can promise it is full of flavor. And it’s just the ticket when you’re looking for an easy and healthy weeknight meal. (And let’s be real, can you ever have too many easy weeknight recipes? Probably not. There’s always room for more.)
This is one of those great recipes you can always turn to when you just want something simple and satisfying. It makes great meal-prep for lunches, and as far as oven bakes go, it’s really simple to throw together. You don’t have to make any sauces as a binder… you don’t have to cook any rice as a filler, and there’s no precooking of the chicken. You just cube your ingredients and toss them in a simple marinade before baking them.
You whisk together some olive oil, garlic, and spices and toss the sweet potatoes in the mixture and let them sit while you cube the chicken. The sweet potatoes go into the oven, and you toss the chicken in the remaining oil mixture and let it marinate while the sweet potatoes get started cooking. From there, you simply toss the chicken together with the sweet potatoes and some parsley, top it all with a little bit of cheese, and pop the whole thing back into the oven. You don’t have to precook the chicken, you don’t have to remember to marinate something hours ahead of time, and before you know it, dinner is done!
