Sweet Potato Broccoli Chicken Bake: A delicious one-dish meal that you and your family will enjoy!
We love to keep it simple at Simply Nourished! We aim to use only 10 real food ingredients or less in most all of our recipes. Pretty nice, huh? Our Sweet Potato Broccoli Chicken Bake is quick to make and makes for a delicious weeknight meal. We consider this to be a very well-balanced, one-dish meal because it includes a healthy source of protein (chicken), fats (olive oil & nuts) and carbs (sweet potato, veggies & raisins). There really is no need for a side-dish, however a mixed green salad does complement this dish very nicely. Sweet Potato Broccoli Chicken Bake will be a definite favorite for you and your family. And it’s just as tasty reheated the next day. Below, we show you the steps to preparing this simple dish.
Now doesn’t that look easy?
