This recipe is just a combination of some of my favorite “Fall ingredients.” And really- what could be better than sweet potatoes, apples, and bacon?
This bake could be a main dish if you include the chicken, or a side dish without it. Either way, it’s savory and delicious! And it makes the kitchen smell amazing too!
Here’s the recipe:
Savory Fall Bake
1/2 white onion, diced
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 apples (I used Pink Lady apples), diced
2 chicken breasts, diced
salt and pepper to taste
2 TBS cinnamon
1/2 cup coconut oil
8 strips bacon
In a large glass baking dish, layer the onion, sweet potatoes, apples, and chicken. Salt and pepper the chicken, then sprinkle the contents with cinnamon. Melt the coconut oil and pour over the top. Top the dish with the bacon (this allows the flavor of the bacon to drip down into the rest of the ingredients- yum!).
Cover with aluminum foil, and bake in a 375-degree oven for 45 minutes. Remove the foil, and bake for another 15 minutes.
This is a perfect Fall-weather meal! Enjoy!
