Servings: 4 -5


  • 2 cups diced sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil, butter, ghee or cooking fat of choice
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed and freshly chopped Italian parsley or 1 1/2 teaspoons dry 
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dry
  • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped rosemary leaves 
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 pound ground chicken (I used pasture raised dark meat)
  • 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped broccoli florets 
  • 1/3 chopped green onions
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach 


  • Head cooking fat in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add diced sweet potatoes. Cook, stirring a few times until potatoes start to soften (about 7-9 minutes)
  • Add garlic, herbs, and spices to skillet. Stir to coat potatoes and let cook until garlic becomes aromatic (about 3-4 minutes).
  • Crumble ground chicken meat into the skillet, stirring frequently and using spoon to break up the piece of chicken into smaller crumbles. Cook until your can’t see anymore pink on the chicken (about 5-6 minutes)
  • Add chopped broccoli and green onions to the skillet and stir in. Cook for about 5 more minutes.
  • Finally, add the baby spinach last. Stir to combine and allow it to cook with the other hot ingredients just for just a minute or two until it starts to wilt.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy warm. 


Use this recipe as an outline for your own one-skillet creation. Hate broccoli? Substitute it with something you do love. No ground chicken? Use beef! Or turkey! It’s totally cool.
