INGREDIENTS
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 large red onion, diced
3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 small garlic clove, minced
2 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. lime juice
1 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
4 c. cooked brown rice
1 avocado, thinly sliced
2 c. baby spinach
1 tbsp. freshly chopped coriander, for garnish (optional)
1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds or pine nuts

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 425°. On a large baking sheet, toss sweet potatoes and onion with 1 tablespoon of oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium- high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Season the chicken with garlic powder, ginger, salt, and pepper. Cook until golden and cooked through – about 10 minutes per side. Let rest 10 minutes, then slice.

Prepare the rice as instructed on the packet.
In a small bowl, whisk together the minced garlic, peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce, and honey. Whisk in the sesame oil and remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil until smooth.

Divide the rice among four bowls and top each with the sweet potato mixture, chicken, avocado, and baby spinach. Sprinkle with coriander and sesame seeds or pine nuts and drizzle with the dressing before serving. Enjoy!
