The best part is that this is a one-pan meal and it’s ready in about 30 minutes. In my book that’s a recipe for a perfect weeknight dinner.

To make it, you start by seasoning the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried herbs. Melt some butter in a skillet and stir in honey to make the honey butter sauce.

Brown the chicken in that crazy delicious honey butter and then scoot the chicken off to the sides to make room in the center of the skillet.

Add a little more honey and butter to the middle of the skillet and then toss in your sweet potatoes along with some pecans and dried cranberries.

Move the skillet to the oven and bake for about 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sweet potatoes are fork-tender.

That’s it! Top it off with some cracked black pepper and fresh thyme and serve. Your family will beg you to make this dish over and over again!

The great news? You won’t mind one bit because it’s such a cinch to whip up.

I made with chicken breast cut into large chunks. Four out of five of us liked it, including my picky kid. However, the potatoes needed a lot more time to cook. I cut them pretty small and pre-cooked them 4 min in the microwave and still needed to leave the pan in the oven for more than 20 minutes. One of the kids commented that they prefer the potatoes to be softer. Next time I’d pre-cook the potatoes longer.
