This delicious dish for the cooling weather was made in partnership with Foster Farms, who generously sponsored this post (yes I <3 them and love using their products) and I couldn’t be happier to create a dish that keeps the comfort of a warm hearty dish while adding fresh and healthier twists to the recipe.

Creamy Garlic Parmesan Roasted Chicken and Sweet Potatoes can certainly be made with some alternate greens and vegetables:

  • Swap spinach for kale or Brussels sprouts or zucchini.
  • Swap the sweet potatoes for your favorite classic potato variety, carrots, parsnips, turnips or your favorite hard winter squash.

Bowl food is just the epitome of the #NewComfortFood – using healthier recipes with premium, fresh ingredients.

I’m thrilled to be working with Foster Farms again, as their Simply Raised chicken is locally grown with no antibiotics ever and you can feel great about serving it to your family.

Once you add the chicken back into the pan, you can actually finish cooking the Creamy Garlic Parmesan Roasted Chicken and Sweet Potatoes on your stovetop too.

I add it to the oven because I love trapping the heat on all sides and crisping up the skin.

I find on the stovetop your skin will get a bit steamier than it does in the oven. Another positive to adding your pan to the oven is you can set it and forget it, not worrying about anyone wandering near the stovetop as you finish getting ready for dinner.

Once out of the oven, I normally give the chicken five to then minutes to cool before serving it up.

  1. This recipe does not disappoint. Really flavorful and relatively easy. Will definitely make again.

    1. I’ve never tested it but I’m not sure I would recommend it. Canned yams are usually packed with syrup and that would change the flavor. Also, the texture might be off as well. If you decide to try, I’d love to know how it turned out.

  2. Don’t think twice about making this. It’s so easy to make and even easier to just clean one pot! My boyfriend loved it, his words were “wow this is delicious it’s like something you’d order at a fancy restaurant.” I give this recipe 5 stars.

    1. Yay! That’s a great compliment!! Thank you so much for taking the time to come back to let me know how much you loved it! It’s great to get a “fancy” meal in the comfort of your own home.

    1. I’m so sorry for the delay, this comment somehow got snared in the spam filter! I would add them as halves and maybe two cups? They won’t cook down like the spinach does so it really depends on the size of your pan, I wouldn’t layer them on thick, they won’t cook through so make sure they’re as close to single layer as possible.

  3. Who would have thought that sweet potatoes parmesan cheese and spinach would go together? Not me not until I tried this dish. I used kale along with the spinach and all I have to say is this is going to be my Thanksgiving meal. You rock dinnerthendessert!

    1. Awesome! thank you so much for coming back and letting me know how it turned out! Glad to be a part of the Thanksgiving dinner!

    1. Sorry this comment took so long to get to, it ended up in my spam filter somehow! You certainly have finished your meal a long time ago now, but I would try to add some sort of cream to the recipe otherwise it would have a quite different flavor.

  4. My mouth is literally watering just looking at those photos. Creamy + Garlic + Parmesan are three of my favorite words…
