This comforting dish has everything you need in a healthy dinner —protein and flavor!
1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
2. In a 9×13-inch baking pan, layer in order the sweet potatoes, spinach, chicken (flatten it out), black beans, and salsa. Cover and seal well with foil.
3. Bake until the chicken is well done (internal temperature of at least 165°F), about 1 hour 15 minutes.
4. Carefully remove the foil (the contents of the pan will be steamy). Sprinkle with the salt. Serve.
Tip: Weigh the sweet potato on the scale in the produce section of your market—or have them weigh it at the farmer’s market—so you have an appropriate amount at recipe time.
