1 large sweet potato, peeled, cut into 1/2" cubes

1 large red onion, finely chopped

3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. ground ginger

1 small clove garlic, finely chopped

Juice of 1 lime

2 tbsp. creamy peanut butter

1 tbsp. honey

1 tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 tbsp. toasted sesame oil

4 c. cooked brown rice

1 avocado, thinly sliced

2 c. baby spinach

1 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds


Preheat oven to 425°. On a large baking sheet, toss potatoes and onion with 1 tablespoon olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Bake until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season chicken with garlic powder, ginger, salt, and pepper. Cook chicken, turning occasionally, until golden and no longer pink, about 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 10 minutes, then thinly slice.

In a small bowl, whisk garlic, lime juice, peanut butter, honey, and soy sauce until combined. Whisk in sesame oil and remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil until smooth.

Divide rice among bowls. Top with potato mixture, chicken, avocado, and spinach. Sprinkle with cilantro and sesame seeds. Drizzle with dressing.
