Tips and Tricks:

  • You can add in ½ Tbsp of basil pesto or sun dried tomato pesto to the chicken when dishing it up.
  • Pecan nuts or walnuts are a great additional to this meal, toss in just before serving.
  • If you cannot find fresh herbs, use dried herbs but these are stronger in flavor than fresh herbs. Use 1 tsp of dried herbs to every 1 Tbsp of fresh herbs.
  • A dash of lemon juice and 2 cloves of crushed garlic would add extra flavor to the dish. 
  • Purchase and use pre-cut sweet potatoes to cut down on prep time.
