“This comes from the Feb 10 issue of Real Simple. I haven't made it yet, but doesn't it look yummy?? A note they made-mash the potatoes with some of the cooking water instead of butter and milk to reduce calories and fat.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place sweet potatoes in large pot. Add enough cold water to cover and bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp salt, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 14 to 16 minutes. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking water, drain the sweet potatoes, and return them to the pot. Mash with the reserved cooking water.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the chicken with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper and cook until golden brown and cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer to plates.
  3. Wipe out the skillet and heat the remaining 3 tbsp of oil over medium-high heat. Add the shallots, rosemary, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper and cook, stirring until the shallots are tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve the chicken with the potatoes and drizzle with the shallot mixture.
