Simple, easy to make & tasty. This chicken, sweet potato & asparagus recipe is  another one of my “go-to” dishes when meal prepping for the week.

N.B. If you have specific macro goals you may need to adjust the quantities or number of servings to better suit your targets. For example:

  • Larger /more chicken breast for higher protein,
  • More Potatoes for higher Carb, and/or
  • Less Oil for lower fat

And if you are tracking, make sure you include any condiments used when logging your meal in MyFitnessPal (or wherever you track your food)

Variations *optional*

  • Replace Chicken breast with boneless, skinless chicken thighs (N.B. this will increase the fat content) or try a different type of meat altogether
  • Sub in Acorn, Butternut or Kabocha squash for sweet potatoes to decrease carbs/increase volume
  • Replace asparagus with another other cruciferous veggies - e.g. Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Zucchini, or Bok Choy (whatever you have in your fridge)
