Southwestern Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Rice


My daughter loves the sweetness of the sweet potato in this dish!

Also, by using ranch seasoning (instead of a dressing or marinade) I'm able to add flavor without adding oil and preservatives.

Try topping with diced tomato or avocado!

  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup sweet corn
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1 cup diced cooked chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup shredded mexican cheese
  • 1 tsp ranch seasoning (taco seasoning works great too but the flavor was too bold for my toddler)
  • 1 roma tomato finely diced (optional)
  To Prepare:
  1. Wrap sweet potato in plastic wrap and microwave on high until fully cooked (3-5 minutes)
  2. Toss chicken with ranch dressing.
  3. Combine all remaining ingredients in large mixing bowl.
  4. Once sweet potato is cool, cut into cubes and slowly fold into mixture.
  5. Slowly fold in seasoned chicken.
  6.  If desired, top with diced tomato and serve with corn tortillas. (I used a cookie cutter for the flower shape)
