  • 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning (dry)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 3/4 lb)
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Spray large, rimmed sheet pan with cooking spray.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Want it spicier? Add a tablespoon of finely chopped hot pepper, such as jalapeño or serrano, to the sauce mixture.
  • tip 2
    If you don’t have an 18x13-inch rimmed baking sheet or “sheet pan,” consider investing in one. They’re large enough to accommodate a full dinner on one pan, but small enough to fit in most home ovens.
