A skillet-top meal for two. This easy dish will have you feasting on classic holiday flavors for dinner, with just one dish in the sink.


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 3 Tbsp Italian breadcrumbs
  • 3 Tbsp grated parmesan
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh green beans, snipped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil spray
  • Fresh chopped curly parsley (for garnish)


Pierce sweet potato with a fork. Microwave for 6-7 minutes, or until tender. Allow to cool, peel and dice into bite-sized pieces.

In a shallow bowl or pie pan, mix together breadcrumbs and parmesan. Press chicken into mixture, coat both sides.

Melt butter over medium-high heat in a Good Cook Touch Skillet. Add garlic, cook for 1-2 minutes. Place chicken breasts in pan, brown on both sides.

Add diced sweet potato, green beans and cranberries to pan. Drizzle with honey, and spray with a light layer of olive oil, using the Good Cook Oil Sprayer.

Turn heat to medium and cook until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through. If needed, cover with a lid to ensure chicken cooks through without burning.

Salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley.
