Honey Glazed Chicken & Sweet Potatoes #Recipe #chicken #instapotsweetpotatoes

Carter enjoying honey glazed chicken, 
sweet potatoes with cranberries, 
and regular old applesauce from a jar. 

Kid tested and approved! I'm always looking for fast, easy food that all of my guys agree on. This meal is almost a unanimous hit. Not all the boys like sweet potatoes, but they all agree the chicken is seconds-worthy.

For the sweet potatoes:

Peel and slice 3 pounds of sweet potatoes
Melt half stick of butter in the microwave, add 1/4 cup of honey to the melted butter, and mix

Pour over the sweet potatoes and stir.
Add dried cranberries. I added a half cup or more because we like the tart flavor with the sweet.

Add 1/4 cup water. Cook on high pressure for 8 minutes.

I've also cooked these in the oven. Cook covered on 350 degrees for about an hour.

For the chicken:

Sprinkle chicken breast sliced into strips with steak seasoning and allow to marinade a bit. I used Longhorn seasoning. It has a bit of a kick to it without making the chicken too spicy.

Then, I pan-fried the chicken in a bit of oil, until done, then tossed them in a mixing bowl.

Once all the chicken was cooked, I threw a half stick of butter and a quarter cup of honey in the pan and allowed it to come to a boil before removing from the heat and pouring over the chicken and mixing.

It's ready to serve!

If you don't want to run out and buy a bottle of seasoning, here's a knock off recipe:

  1. OH man! This all looks so good and Carter looks like a professional model for this meal photo. Good job!

    1. I'll not tell him that. He might expect a payment. LOL

  2. Sounds great! Obviously not intended for anyone on a diet.

    1. It's better on the diet than going through the drive through. But yeah, not a low calorie meal.

  3. Looks so yummy. I don't use my instantpot often enough.

    1. I got mine for Christmas, so I'm still in the testing/learning phase.

  4. It looks yummy. My kids will love the chicken, but the sweet potatoes will be up to debate with them.

    1. It was the same here. 2 out of 4 boys don't like sweet potatoes no matter how you slice them.


Thanks for stopping by the House!
