Winter Chicken Bake


"This is an easy recipe that is warm, hearty, healthy, and colorful. The tartness of the cranberries compliments the sweetness of the barbecue sauce and the mellow sweet potatoes. Homemade barbecue sauce is what I used, but your favorite barbecue sauce will work too."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking dish.
  2. Pierce the sweet potato several times with a fork and cut in half. Place in a microwave-safe dish; pour water to about 1/2-inch deep. Cook in microwave 10 minutes.
  3. Arrange the onion, apple, and carrots into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Brush the barbecue sauce on both sides of the chicken breasts and lay atop the vegetables. Peel the sweet potato and cut into large chunks; scatter into the baking dish. Sprinkle the cranberries over the dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is tender and no longer pink in the center, 45 to 55 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes before serving.

Perfect for winter nights. My only problem was the sweet potato dried out a bit. I used dried cranberries--careful to place them on top of the chicken/veggies, if they are on the bottom they bur...

I LOVED this recipe. The flavors were amazing and the chicken turned out perfect. I didn't have carrots on hand so I used red and yellow peppers. I also served with rice and it was absolutely de...

I chose this recipe because I was looking for something tasty that my family would enjoy that had a "red" theme for Valentine's Day. My wife & I have 4 daughters that have grown up and their tas...

Very tasty! I didn't realize that it was scaled for two, so I only used one sweet potato and one apple for my family of 6...still, it was delish! Next time I will definitely add what I left out:...

I can't think of enough adjectives to describe how yummy this is. It is colorful, flavorful and comforting. I made it exactly as the recipe says and it came out perfect. I'll be making it many m...
