Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and salt. Add to the baking sheet in a single layer. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  4. Once the skillet is hot, add 1 tablespoon of oil and chicken. Sear until golden brown on both sides (but not cooked through). Remove from heat.

  5. Once the sweet potatoes have been baking for 10 minutes, remove the baking sheet and add the chicken and broccoli. Drizzle the broccoli with the remaining 1 teaspoon of olive oil.

  6. Place the baking sheet in the oven and continue to cook until the chicken is cooked through and the veggies tender.

  7. Remove from oven and divide between plates. Drizzle with sweet chili sauce and serve.
