BBQ Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner
2 medium sweet potatoes
1 large yellow onion
2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
½ teaspoon salt, divided
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ pound green beans, trimmed
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts (Vegetarian: Substitute chicken with 2 cups pinto, kidney or cannellini beans.)
½ cup BBQ sauce, divided (look for clean ingredients and low sugar, like Noble Made BBQ sauce)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into ½-inch chunks. Chop onion into 1-inch pieces and add to a foil-lined sheet pan along with the sweet potatoes. Toss the sweet potatoes and onions with 1 Tablespoon olive oil and ¼ teaspoon salt, garlic powder and chili powder until well combined. Bake for 20 minutes.
Push the sweet potatoes to one side of the pan. Add the green beans and toss with 1 Tablespoon olive oil and ¼ teaspoon salt. Add the chicken breasts and brush with ¼ cup BBQ sauce. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is done.
Remove the pan from the oven and shred the chicken breasts using two forks. Toss the chicken with the remaining BBQ sauce. Add to bowls along with the roasted vegetables and serve immediately.
