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.
