Seasoned spicy chicken cooked on a sheet pan with sweet potatoes and broccoli (or any vegetables you prefer). Feed your entire family or divide it into containers and have it as healthy meal prep for the entire week!
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 Tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 3-4 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 1 large bunch asparagus
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. In a gallon-sized resealable bag, add chicken, seasoning, and 2 Tablespoons of olive oil. Seal bag and toss until chicken is coated with oil and seasonings. Set in the fridge for 30 mintues to let the flavor marinate the chicken.
  2. While the chicken marinates, peel and dice the sweet potatoes.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and remove chicken from fridge.
  4. Line 2 large baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Arrange the chicken and asparagus on one baking pan in a single layer (if you overlap the vegetables, it will steam them instead of roast them . . . they just taste so much better roasted!).
  6. Arrange sweet potatoes on the remaining sheet pan in a single layer.
  7. Drizzle vegetables with olive oil and seasoning with salt and pepper. Lightly toss so that all the vegetables have olive oil and seasonings on them.
  8. Place both baking sheets in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove the chicken and asparagus (once the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees), but continue to roast the sweet potatoes for another 12-15 minutes.
  9. Serve immediately or divided among 6 meal prep containers and enjoy all week long.
