I had a great weekend, my oldest was home for a few days,  I had several friends and family over for dinner on Saturday and I got to drink amazing wine, and catch up with my favorite people.

One of my friends who follows my blog mentioned that there have not been a lot of ‘meat’ recipes posted lately.   Which is true, but I was quick to let her know that in facet my next recipe would in fact be a recipe loaded with protein.

This Sweet Potato Spicy Chicken Recipe is loaded with ‘meat’ along with a ton of flavor.  Chicken, bacon, sweet potatoes and spices work together in this dish like a four-part harmony.  Smoothly complimenting one another and making your taste buds very happy little buds indeed.

I have used chicken thighs in this recipe which is very rich.  Like oh-my this is amazing!  However, if you want to keep your calorie count a little lower, but still want the flavor from the dark meat, do a combination of chicken thighs and breasts.   Whichever meat you choose this dish is simple to pull together with a limited amount of prep and ingredients.

    I have made all your crack recipes and they are delicious! Thank you for sharing!

    1. Hi Michele,
      Throw your broccoli florets into the pan before you place it in the oven.
      Good luck, Amy

  3. I made this for dinner tonight because I was looking for a high protein meal. I served it with brown rice. I made it exactly like the recipe and it was yummy! The hubby liked it too.

  4. Looks pretty simple! I cook turkey bacon for breakfast a lot and then end up with leftovers so maybe next time I have some I’ll throw this meal together. Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods!!

    1. It is a simple and delicious dish Ashley. I always make extra bacon, cause it goes great in everything 🙂 Let me know what you think after you make it!

    1. That is awesome- never thought to have it for breakfast, but now I am envisoning a fried egg on top! Great idea!
