Recipe Repost – Chicken with Sweet Potatoes & Cauliflower

Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Cauliflower

A year and a half ago (wow! that seems like forever ago!) I posted a recipe for Red Vinegar Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Cauliflower  and since I love this recipe and have made it quite a few times since, I decided to re-vamp it a little by snapping a picture of it the last time I made it, so here is the repost recipe :

Chicken with Sweet Potatoes & Cauliflower
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dinner, Lunch
Serves: 6
  • 1 lb Chicken Breasts, cut in half (usually 2-3 chicken breasts)
  • 3 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 head Cauliflower
  • 2.5 Tbs Olive Oil
  • ¼-1/2 cup Chicken Broth (low sodium)
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 1 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • 2-4 Sprigs fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp salt and pepper (more to taste)
  1. Preheat oven to 400. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into chunks. Clean the cauliflower and cut into pieces. Put the sweet potatoes and the cauliflower in a big bowl and add 1.5 tbs olive oil, leaves off of 1 thyme sprig, salt and a few sprinkles pepper and combine.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, place the sweet potatoes and cauliflower evenly on the baking sheet and put in the oven for 30-40 min, flipping when about halfway done so they brown evenly.
  3. While the veggies are in the oven, cut the chicken breasts in halves, add remaining olive oil to a pan and then add the chicken, next add the butter so that it melts in with the olive oil while the chicken is cooking and cook over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with a little bit of salt and pepper. When the chicken has browned on one side, flip it, and add ¼ to ½ cup of chicken broth, the red vinegar and the remaining thyme leaves. Cook until the liquid has cooked down and reduced in half and the chicken is done cooking. To serve spoon a little of the sauce over the veggies and chicken on the plate.

    You didn’t say what temperature to cook the chicken on or whether we are to flip it after it browns.

      Thank you so much for pointing that out Julia – this is a really old post (from 2013) and I’m happy to report they’ve improved, I did go ahead and edit the recipe a little. The chicken should be cooked on medium-high heat, and it should be flipped once. Thanks again.
