Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit and line 3 sheet pans with parchment paper. You'll use one for the chicken, one for the sweet potatoes and one for the veggies (veggies and chicken can be combined on one large pan).
  • Prepare chicken seasoning mix by combining all seasoning ingredients in a small bowl or jar and mixing well.

  • Chop sweet potatoes as noted and place them on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tbsp avocado oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and place potatoes in the oven to roast for 30 minutes. 
  • Chop broccoli and onion as noted and place them on the last sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tbsp avocado oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  • When the sweet potatoes have 20 minutes left, place the chicken and veggies in the oven to roast. 
  • Remove everything from the oven. Squeeze lemon juice over the veggies.
  • Serve everything together topped with avocado slices.
