  • Arrange chicken in a 3-quart rectangular baking dish; brush with half of the mustard mixture. Add the next three ingredients (through sweet pepper); drizzle with remaining mustard mixture.

  • Bake, covered, 25 minutes. Bake, uncovered, 25 minutes more or until chicken is done (165°F) and sweet potatoes are tender. Serve chicken and vegetables over rice and drizzle with cooking liquid. If desired, top with green onions and additional crushed red pepper.


If you prefer, omit the honey and Dijon-style mustard and use 1/2 cup Dijon-style honey mustard.

WIN! Everyone loved it and EASY!! Made it for my family of four with a 2.5 year old and 5 year old. My only note for future preparing is to cut the chicken in to smaller pieces--maybe chicken "tender" sized pieces or even cubes. I noted the given cooking time 25 min covered and 25 min uncovered left both the sweet potatoes and chicken undercooked.

Baking boneless skinless chicken breasts this long (50 minutes) is only going to make them tough and dry, despite the flavorful coating. Made this as directed and found it way too sweet (I would add at most 1T of honey next time) and the mustard mixture really can't be "drizzled" so much as "glopped" onto the food. The sweet potato chunks weren't all cooked through, but the chicken was way past done, tough and chewy. The flavor overall wasn't worth a repeat attempt. I should have known better, reading the directions, that this wouldn't really work and I was right.
