  • 4 chicken thighs or chicken breasts
  • 5 tablespoons butter divided
  • 4 tablespoons honey divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper or to taste
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Italian blend seasoning divided, (may sub about ½ teaspoon dried oregano + ¼ teaspoon each dried thyme, dried basil, dried parsley)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 ½ pounds sweet potatoes peeled and diced into 1-2 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup pecan halves
  • fresh thyme for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste, plus garlic powder and 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning. 
  • In a large skillet over medium heat melt 3 tablespoons butter. Stir in 2 tablespoons honey. Add chicken to pan and brown on each side for 3-4 minutes. Scoot chicken to the sides of the skillet.
  • Add remaining butter and honey to the center of the skillet. Once butter is melted, add sweet potatoes and stir to coat in the honey-butter mixture. Sprinkle with remaining Italian seasoning, then add pecans and cranberries and stir to combine. Allow to cook for 3-4 minutes. 
  • Transfer pan to preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Garnish with fresh thyme and cracked black pepper and serve.
