BBQ Chicken with Grilled Sweet Potatoes
- Total Time
This special meal is a little more elegant than the traditional summer burgers-and-dogs, but not much more work.
chili powder1 Tbsp
ground cumin½ Tbsp
ground cinnamon½ Tbsp
garlic powder½ Tbsp
dry mustard½ Tbsp
uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)1 pound(s), four 4-oz pieces
uncooked sweet potato(es)2 large
cooking spray1 spray(s)
table salt⅛ tsp, or to taste
- Mix paprika through to sugar. A few hours before you plan to grill, rub chicken breasts with seasoning mixture. Cover and refrigerate until 15 minutes before you grill.
- Peel sweet potatoes and slice into 1/3-inch discs. Place in a pot with enough cold, salted water to cover, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 3 to 4 minutes, then drain and cool.
- When it's time to grill, preheat grill, then spray potatoes with cooking spray or olive oil spray and salt them. Salt chicken breasts. Place potatoes and chicken on grill and cook until done. The seasoning mixture makes the chicken very reddish in color, so be careful not to cook the chicken too long.
