Two recipe Tuesday- Easy peasy!

I made a super simple supper tonight and wanted to share the really easy recipes with you all. I apologize in advance for no pictures, but I am picking up a replacement battery for my camera tomorrow!!!

Plus, I’m going to assume that you know what sweet potato fries look like….they’re bright orange and in the shape of a fry 🙂 And hopefully you know what chicken and rice looks like…trust me it wouldn’t have photographed well, even though the flavors were out of this world!

Coconutty Sweet Potato Fries

1 large sweet potato

1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

garlic salt


Preheat the oven to 450*. Slice the sweet potato into large matchsticks, or any shape/size you desire. I did standard fry size (if there is such a thing!). Place fries into a large bowl. Drizzle coconut oil over fries, followed by a dusting of garlic salt and pepper to taste. Combine until all fries are well coated. Place fries on broiler-safe baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, turning once. Turn the broiler on hi and roast for just a few minutes or until they are golden brown. Serve with ketchup!

This was only the second time I’ve made sweet potato fries (last night was the first time :)) and let me tell you something…they will be a staple in this household this fall/winter! Absolutely delicious!

Rosemary chicken thighs with white wine cream sauce

This recipe sounds a lot fancier than it really is. It is incredibly easy to make and tastes delicious!

1 tbsp coconut oil

4 chicken thighs

salt and pepper

1/4 cup white wine

1 tbsp butter

1/4 cup heavy cream, raw if you have it

rosemary herb blend

3 cups cooked brown rice (I cooked a big batch last night and used the leftovers)

Begin by heating a large skillet on medium heat. Melt the coconut butter in the skillet and place the chicken thighs in. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and sear on each side until golden brown (3-4 minutes). Remove chicken from skillet and set aside. To the skillet, add the white wine and deglaze the pan. Next, melt the butter and add the cream. Add the herbs to taste and whisk together for a minute. Add the brown rice  and stir to coat. Next, add the chicken back in and coat with sauce as much as you can. Cover and let sit for a few minutes until the chicken is done. Serve alongside the sweet potato fries (and broccoli for extra fiber!).

This whole meal came together in less than 30 minutes. Talk about easy! Enjoy!
