Maple Mustard Chicken and Sweet Potatoes Skillet

Maple Mustard Chicken and Sweet Potato Skillet - bursting with flavor, this dish is perfect weekday comfort food. One pan, 30 minutes!

We LOVE sweet potatoes in our house. For breakfast, lunch or dinner – they taste great, are nutritious and can make any meal taste amazing! This Maple Mustard Chicken and Sweet Potato Skillet is super quick and delicious & healthy. It’s also Paleo and gluten free. I love one skillet meals because they are great for weekdays/-nights.

I made the maple mustard glaze for the chicken with Maple Mustard sauce from Steve’s Paleo Goods, garlic, fresh lemon juice, ghee. It was so good! I was so excited to find a Maple Mustard sauce that is Paleo. You know how hard it is to find Paleo condiments and dressings that are not made with various additives, flavorings and suspicious ingredients? This Maple Mustard sauce from Steve’s Paleo Goods tastes really good! I was impressed by all the other great Paleo products they offer. They sent me a sampler to try and I must say that I have become an addict of the Apple Pie Granola.  They have freshly crafted protein bars, USDA-certified jerky, dried fruit (psst the strawberries are super addicting!), grain-free granola bars, nut butters, sauces and much more.

And when you eat their snacks, there is no need to worry. I love that they keep it natural –
• No gluten
• No dairy
• No soy
• No artificial preservatives
• No added sugars

    We are all about the one pot meals here. We also love sweet potatoes – but I never cook them on the stovetop – creature of habit! I need to try this recipe – it looks so easy and such amazing flavors.

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Thank you Erin! Yes, sweet potatoes on the stovetop are surprisingly easy and ready much quicker. Hope you give this recipe a try!

  • Julia

    One pot meals are my thing! I love them during the week when I am busy. This combination of sweet potatoes and the maple mustard chicken sounds perfect!!

  • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

    Same here, Julia! One pot meals, stir frys, etc. are my go-to meals during the week. 🙂

  • Sali

    This looks great! Quick question – when do you add the lemon juice?

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Hi Sali, the lemon juice is mixed with all the ingredients for the maple mustard glaze (4 Tbsp maple mustard, 3 garlic cloves (minced), 2 Tbsp melted ghee, juice of half lemon and a little bit of salt and black pepper to taste). After that I brush the chicken breasts with that maple mustard glaze and cook them in the skillet. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
