  • 4 split chicken breasts bone-in, skin on
  • 1/4 cup olive oil divided
  • 2 large apples cored and cut in slices or large chunks
  • 1 large yellow onion peeled and sliced in large chunks
  • 2 large sweet potatoes peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon salt divided
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon divided
  • 1 teaspoon pepper divided
  • minced parsley optional garnish


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray and scatter the apples, onions and sweet potatoes in a single layer. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, 1 teaspoon of the salt, 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Mix well with hands.
  • Place chicken breasts on top of the veggies/apple mixture and drizzle with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with remaining spices. Rub evenly to coat chicken on both sides.
  • Bake until chicken is golden and cooked through, about 45-60 minutes depending on thickness of chicken. 


Serving size is one chicken breast and 1 cup cooked veggies.
