Chicken with Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

Tossing the warm roasted vegetables with fresh spinach gently wilts and tenderizes the greens. In place of sweet potatoes, try butternut squash, rutabaga, carrots, or parsnips. This heart-healthy salad also pairs well with fish or lean beef.

Ingredients

  • 2 sweet potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and cut into thin wedges
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 4 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 bunch spinach, thick stems removed (about 4 cups)

Preparation

Heat oven to 425° F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the potatoes, onion, 2 tablespoons of the oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Roast until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
