Every Friday I am going to try to send out a fresh, tasty, fat burning recipe for you to try out sometime.

So, today we have Chipotle Glazed Roast Chicken with Sweet Potatoes

 

Makes: 6 servings

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 35 minutes

 

Ingredients
4 sweet potatoes (10 ounces each), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

4 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce, minced

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons honey

2 teaspoons cider vinegar

1 1/4 teaspoons salt, plus additional to taste

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (2 pounds), rinsed and patted dry

Chopped cilantro, for garnish (optional)

 

Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  In a medium bowl, toss the sweet potatoes in the olive oil and scatter on the bottom of a roasting pan.  Roast for 15 minutes.

2. In a small bowl, mix together the chilies, garlic, honey, vinegar, salt, cumin, and cinnamon to make a paste.  Rub the paste evenly over each breast.
