    Today I am breaking away from labor and birth to bring you one of my new favorite EASY healthy dinner ideas.

    As a working mom, with two small kids I am all about healthy, easy, and delicious. This dinner idea simply couldn’t be easier! We mostly eat paleo in our home with a few simple carbohydrates. My kiddos love veggies and this is a great way to get them to try something new.

    Asparagus Chicken with Sweet Potatoes

    2 lb of chicken breast

    1 lb. of asparagus

    3-4 sweet potatoes

     

    1. Warm oven to 350 degrees
    2. Place salt and pepper on both sides of the chicken- add any other seasonings you may like. I love garlic, onion powder, thyme, maybe a little paprika for heat- just have fun with it.
    3. Cut sweet potatoes into cubes or wedges.
    4. Wash and trim asparagus.
    5. Take a 9×13 pan and spray with olive oil or coconut oil.
    6. Place asparagus on one side, chicken in the middle and sweet potatoes on the other. Drizzle olive oil or coconut oil over the veggies as well as salt and pepper.
    7. Cook until chicken is done, usually 24-35 minutes.

    Enjoy! See SO simple! You can also serve some rice or quinoa on the side if you desire.
