We are working with a great food box subscription service called EveryPlate. With EveryPlate you get three meals mailed to your doorstep every single week that you are subscribed. The meals are healthy and really easy to cook by following their instructions. This week we made Spicy Honey Butter Chicken with zucchini and roasted sweet potatoes. It was so yummy Y’all!
Using these simple ingredients and the instructions included we were able to make a gourmet-style meal in about 30 minutes. If you are a busy mom like myself then this service is a Godsend. You can come home after a super busy day and have dinner ready for the family in minutes. They send exactly what you need so there is no waste and it’s ready to go in no time.
I have my kiddos get in on the process. I love teaching them how to cook, it’s a skill that every child needs to have. My nine-year-old can follow along with the easy instructions and help out with the meal prep. She loved making our spicy honey butter.
My kids are the worst about eating veggies, but I always include them in all of our meals. I love that EveryPlate almost always has some kind of veggie in all of their recipes.
This chicken turned out amazing! So full of flavor. Even my youngest loved it and she is hard to please. It was a huge hit in our home. I love the EveryPlate service but I’m including the recipe below if you would like to shop the ingredients and make it on your own.
Spicy Honey Butter Chicken with Zucchini & Roasted Sweet Potatoes
- 2 cloves Garlic
- 4 Medium Sweet Potatoes
- 1 Zucchini
- 2 Chicken Breasts
- 1 Chili Pepper
- 2 tbsp Honey
- 2 tbsp Sweet & Smokey BBQ Seasoning
- 4 tbsp Butter
- 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Bring 2 tbsp butter to room temperature. Wash and dry all produce. Medium dice sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes. Halve zucchini lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/2 inch thick half-moons.
- Toss sweet potatoes on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast until tender, 20-22 minutes. Remove from oven, leaving oven on.
- While sweet potatoes roast, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season all over with salt, pepper, and the sweet & smokey seasoning. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add seasoned chicken and cook until browned and cooked through, 5-6 minutes per side. Turn off heat, transfer to a plate and set aside.
- While chicken cooks, peel and finely chop garlic. Thinly slice chili. In a small bowl combine softened butter, honey, and a pinch of chili and salt. Taste and add more honey, chili or salt if needed.
- Heat a drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring until browned and tender, 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Turn off heat.
- Toss roasted sweet potatoes with half the spicy honey butter. Return to oven and roast until butter has melted, about 3 minutes. Divide chicken, sauteed zucchini, and buttered sweet potatoes between plates. Top chicken with remaining butter.
We really enjoyed our meal. If you end up making it let us know in the comments what you thought of it as well.
Using EveryPlate makes it super easy but you can definitely do this at home on your own though which is why I wanted to share the recipe. It only took us about 30 minutes to put these together and kids loved them. A super easy meal in minutes. Perfect for a busy day after school functions.
